The Poker Hall of Fame has announced that there will be two new additions to its ranks in 2008.

Duane Tomko and Henry Orenstein are set to become the 36th and 37th players to be named on the list.

Tomko is a former Florida schoolteacher and high-stakes golfer who has emerged as a regular on the World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament scene, after winning three bracelets and achieving two main event runner-up finishes.

Orenstein became famous for introducing one of the key pieces of technological equipment used in televised poker games.

Before he made the Hole Card Cam popular, audiences and commentators could only speculate on play, but adding the lipstick sized cameras, viewers achieved an understanding of the game that could not be gained beforehand.

He was also the producer of High Stakes Poker, which was the first popular high-stakes cash-game poker programme on television.

Orenstien has one WSOP bracelet to his name after winning the $5,000 seven-card-stud tournament in 1996.
