Monday, 15. August 2011

Two extremely prolific and familiar faces to the Australian poker scene are scheduled to be inducted into the Aussie Poker Hall of Fame. Leo “The Mechanic” Boxell, widely respected and feared throughout the poker world, and Danny McDonagh, one time Crown Casino dealer turned host, will be joining the Australian poker elite when inducted into the Aussie Poker Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Crown Casino this coming January.

Hall of Fame members met earlier this July and announced the Aussie Hall of Fame Class of 2011. Australian poker pros Jason Gray, Sam Khouiss, Keith Sloan and Tino Lechich will be inducted alongside Boxell and McDonagh.

Leo Boxell
Boxell has been a fixture on the world poker stage for a number of decades. His most recent accomplishment was a victory at the APPT Melbourne. This win was the 4th six figure payday of his illustrious tournament career. Boxell regularly frequents Australia’s largest casinos; in particular, the Crown Casino where he won the Crown Championship in 2,000 and, later, the Aussie Millions.

Danny McDonagh
McDonagh has played a pivotal role in the popularity of poker as a promoter and director of major tournaments not only in Australia but throughout the entire Asia-Pacific. He has been responsible for each and every major tournament held at the Crown Casino for the day that it opened its doors until the 2007 Aussie Millions. McDonagh has since moved on to become the APPT Tournament Director and the Director of Operations for of all of Pokerstars’ live poker operations in the Asia Pacific region.
