|To mark Poker’s entry into the public ‘mainstream’ in 2005, Bluff Magazine have complied ‘Poker’s Power 20’, which ranks ‘individuals and organizations based on their demonstrated ability and willingness to be an evolutionary force in the industry.’|
Bluff Editor, Michael Caselli explains that ‘The Poker Power 20’ is more than a list of top money earners in poker. “To truly reflect the juggernaut that poker has become, ‘The Poker Power 20’ includes the companies, the brains trusts and the innovators that have aided poker’s phenomenal commercial success,” he said.
The list of finalists includes modern-day poker heroes such as Doyle Brunson, Chip Reese, Chris Moneymaker, Daniel Negreanu, and Phil Hellmuth – everyone’s favorite guy to love to hate. It also includes behind-the-scenes poker movers and shakers such as tournament director Johnny Grooms, player agent Brian Balsburgh and WPT co-founders Steve Lipscomb and Lyle Berman. Additionally, ‘The Poker Power 20’ honors pioneering websites such as PartyPoker and PokerStars.
The results of Bluff Magazine’s ‘Poker Power 20’ will be available in its January issue.
