The World Series of Poker Europe just kicked off on Friday at Casino Barriere de Cannes Croisette and the Hôtel Majestic Barrière in Cannes, France. As usual, I like to make predictions regarding the series, but I am a bit late getting to them this time around. Here are some of my predictions for this years WSOP-E. *Phil Hellmuth Will Have at Least 1 Strong Showing and May Take POY Lead* Phil Hellmuth has been on a tear at the WSOP this year and I believe that he will continue it through the WSOP-E.

The 2010 WSOP has finally wrapped up, or at least until November anyway.   We saw a lot of history made and big headline stories along the way.   I thought I would take a few moments to review some of the predictions I made a couple of days prior to the start of the Series. *Women Will Not Walk Away With Three Bracelets - Result: Push* Technically, I nailed this one based on the title, but I also said I thought that women would walk away with 2 bracelets including the Ladies Event.
