DNDavid ChiuTed ForrestJohn Hennigan Phil Ivey Barry GreenstienMike Matusow Allen Cunningham John Juanda Scotty NguyenI guessing these guys would be the standard picks and anyone else would be considered a non standard pick.
Is that your team or just a reference of standard picks? as you could have just quoted DN, thats his exact short list

Allen Cunningham Chris Ferguson Roland De Wolfe Marcel Luske David Benyamine Daniel Negreanu Andy Bloch Scotty Nguyen Kenny Tran David PhamControversial?

A good strategy is to pick players like the ones DN has put forth, but not the same ones since most people participating will havethe same players. That said, I'm sure I'll include at least three or four from his list, but the others will probably be less big names, but still known to play mixed games at the WSOP.

IMO, you should go with non hold'em guys since the pool is geared towards the high buy in events. Also guys who will play a lot of those events. My short list as of now in no particular order:Daniel NegreanuDavid ChiuTed ForrestJohn HenniganPhil IveyBarry GnreenstienMike Matusow (Crazy I know :-)Allen CunnninghamJohn JuandaScotty Nguyen
This pick will not be allowed.

Reference to DN's picks being the standard.Not my team, I dont want to split first with 7 others.

Lots would pick Hellmuth but considering he has 11 NL HOLDEM braslets and this being mixed games his selection is a suckers choice.

I got:Freddy DeebDNBarry GreensteinErik SeidelAndy BlochHuck SeedTom DwanTed ForrestNick SchulmanErick LindgrenI think Schulman might be an unconventional pick. I have noticed he has been playing high stakes a lot on FTP, and I think he will play in a lot of the higher events.Huck might be also, I know he plays the non-holdem games, but will he play all those events?I was also thinking of Robert Williamson III because of his omaha results, but I'm not sure if he plays anything else.

That is why he is the biggest unconventional pick possible.

I've noticed Paul Wasicka lately expanding his game. I also chose Allen Cunningham and Anndy Bloch as non-conventional picks.

Here is who I picked:-Daniel Negreanu-Phil Hellmuth-Phil Ivey-Doyle Brunson-Erik Seidel-Allen Cunningham-John Juanda-Chris "Jesus" Ferguson-Erick Lindgren-He's due-Greg Raymer-He's done well in Stud Events since his WSOP win. He's not nearly as one-dimensional as the other recent WSOP Main Event winners seem to be.

I really don't know why people would point out little gems like David Singer etc before the draft is locked up, already 2 of my non-standard picks have been outed :club:.I went with the hardly anyone else will have them strategy, so I have 6 standardish and 4 not so obvious, hopefully my other 2 will stand a chance

On one hand I agree if someone thought of a great pick it benefits him/her to not tell everyone, on the other hand its a no stack game, so sharing at this forum is no surprise. If we were taking it seriously, I would try to give out bad pick ideas of accomplished players who will probably not be in the WSOP events, such as Chip Reese (RIP).
