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).

I think most people entering this draft can be divided into two pools. Those who checked who final tabled in the last two $50K horse events and those that didn't. Giving up a couple of names isn't going to matter much with this format.If a couple more people take David Singer, whatever. They only get ten picks, which means they'll have to drop someone equally as good.I could name off at least ten lesser knowns that would easily be on pair with Singer or better. A couple, like Bill Edler and the Grinder have already been mentioned. With a bit of research, I'm sure I could name off another 30 players.I'd advise people to pick players they enjoy cheering for. This draft, while enjoyable and appreciated, is too simplistic to worry your head over it too much.

Really should've thought of Michael Binger. Marco Traniello's also a decent idea given his amount of cashes. Ah well, bit late now! I'm one of the suckers who's picked Phil Hellmuth. He might have won all his bracelets in hold 'em but he has like, 13 final tables in other events. I actually don't think he's as much of a one trick pony as people make him out to be.I went for the usuals plus a few wildcards who I think might do well. Kirk Morrison's already been mentioned but I'm surprised no-one else (that I've seen) has said Kenny Tran yet. I've taken a risk as well with a couple of hold 'em guys who just might branch out into other events this year.

There is no way anyone can consider Hellmuth a Dark horse or unconvential, thats just non sensical. I took some real long shots and some standard.And Hey I would like a hat!!!Good lcuk all

I took Hellmuth, but he is VERY unconventional. The guy really sucks in mixed games, and considering the list of games, he's probably not a good choice imo.

I'm not sure what's the worse choice I made: Swapping out Daniel Negreanu for Chris Ferguson, or swapping out Mike Matusow for Hevad Khan.If I could remember everyone else I threw on there I'd list it, but I find it strange that more people aren't adding Erik Seidel to their teams.

Yeah- I played with him before and thought he was kind of a jerk.Oh- But his is a pretty good mixed games player so definately a solid pick.

Too bad you mispelled Hansen and its not going to count :ts . I thought about Clements too but he didn't quite make the final 10.My out there pick is Brad Booth. I know he is primarily a cash game player but I thought the high buy-in events might make him more interested. :club:
Phil Hellmuth: You got me again Phil. I don't mind.
Guess what? We're gonna play again when it means something by the way.
Phil Ivey: Just come on down to the Bellagio. It's real simple.

Thoughts on Rafi Amit? Know he's an Omaha hot shot and have seen him play the 1/2k HORSE on Full Tilt, will he play most of these or skip for the side action?

Tom Schneider and Jeff Lissandro... multi game players, good, and under the radar.
3-2-A-K-Q is NOT a straight.

I have only seen Raymer on one list so far. He won the Omaha WCOOP and regularly plays in the big HORSE game on Stars. He is one player I would definitely make a switch for.Hellmuth is not a sucker pick at all. He has made the final table in every poker form at the WSOP over the years. There are 3 hold'em events in the pool so even with that he would be a good pick. Also, a national heads up champion winner is probably a good pick for the heads up event.....

If you guys want to see the winning team, just let me know and I will post it on the 30th. You will see the whole package of big game hunters and specialists and all around Poker Greats. The only weak part is probally the Limit holdem.
