Michael Mizrachi locked up the Card Player Player of the Year earlier this month for his dominating performance at tourneys in 2006, but that doesn't mean all the Player of the Year questions are exactly settled here at CardPlayer.com. Nominations for the 2006 people's choice awards are now taking place in our forums.

The voting is now open for reader's choice awards in the categories most entertaining player of 2006, favorite tournament poker player from 2006, and favorite poker television show from 2006. Click here to visit the forum page.

We're asking readers to tell us why they think their choices should be named the best, too.

Once CardPlayer.com has a list of nominations, a page that will allow our readers to simply click and vote on their choices will be launched. The winners will be announced at the POY Gala early in 2007.

CardPlayer.com encourages all its readers to visit and take part in it forums, and this is a good way to start 2007 off. So, if you think Men Nguyen should be nominated as "most entertaining poker player from 2006," write a post and tell us why.

Both Doyle Brunson and Eric Molina already got votes in this category. Brunson was nominated for his performances on High Stakes Poker; Molina for throwing a chip protector at Jamie Gold during the World Series of Poker main event.

There are plenty of other reasons other players should be nominated, and CardPlayer.com wants to hear them.

Again, click here to visit the forums and cast your nominations.

I want to nominate Nam Le and J.C. Tran, both had HUGE years. Le won his first WPT title and finished runner up in one of the largest tounment feilds in history. J.C. Tran won the world's largest online poker tournament, won opening events at foxwoods and Belagio, finished runner up in a WSOPC even and WSOP event.

SYRNY, you got to be kidding Daniel had JUST a big a year as hachem. Negranu started the year off winning a WSOPC ring, finished 5th in the National heads up poker championship, runner up in Tournament of Champions, made 2 WSOP final tables, cahed in the Main event, and finished in the top 30 in 2 WPT events IN A ROW and both feilds had over 500+ players. Negranu finished the year off strong with a 3 place finish at belagio. I'm not trying to put down Hachem at all. He had an incredible year, won a WPT title and had 2 WSOP braceltes snatched from his hands in brutal ways. Hachem is the first true Main event Champion to really prove he wasnt a fluke since Carlos.

Hellmuth has to be my favorite player of the year. What he did at the WSOP did year was just incredible. As for the biggest player to look out for next yeek I'd have to say Justin Bonomo.

Best Unknown / Underrated Player: Nenad Medic is definitely my pick here because although he is primarily a high stakes cash game player, he has been consistent in many of the $10,000 events like a 3rd place in the Aussie Millions and capped of the year with a win at the WPT World Poker Finals.

Plus, I gotta give props to a fellow University of Waterloo alum. UW is representing ;) (WPT winner Steve Paul Ambrose is also fellow alum)

Steve Wong for finishing 14th in the Card Player standings for player of the year. Since he only played for 4 months in the United States this year.

If you could pick one guy to represent poker, who would that be? If you could have sent one player to congress to change there mined about banning poker in the US, who would that have been? If you could wake up tomorrow and have the skills, mindset and talent of any poker player out there, who would it be? Ask this question to ten people or 10 million people and I guarantee you that the name you hear the most will be Daniel Negreanu. And for that reason he is my vote for Card Player POY.

I'd go with Michael Mizrachi for his first half of the year results and then Jeff Madsen for coming on so strong at the WSOP.

I love to watch Russian Ralph (ralph-Rafael perry) on the tube, what a gentlemen he is. I only wish more poker players showed the class he does, on and off the poker table.
