My Picks to Win Their First Bracelet at the 2010 WSOP

The World Series of Poker 2010 is just over two months away and it is about time for the media to start their speculation into who will do well and who will have breakout performances. Of course, I could come on here and make my standard "€œIvey will win a bracelet and maybe more if he applies himself"€ prediction, but for this blog, I figured I would list the five players that I feel have a good shot at a bracelet this year. #1: Andy Bloch Every since I first met Andy in 2006, I have been pulling for him. Bloch has two runner-up finishes, with the most famous being his runner-up finish to Chip Reese in the 2006 $50k HORSE event.

I read recently that durrrr reminds people of a vampire.   I was watching a video of him on another site just now and had paused it to buffer with him smiling.   I see what people are talking about.   However, I don't get where people thinks he looks like a member of the Twilight cast.

The ballot for the Poker Hall of Fame is shorter by one name and that is Tom "durrrr" Dwan. According to Poker Hall of Fame Governing Council: "With all due respect to Mr. Dwan, one of the games most exciting young players, he does not currently meet the criteria for Hall of Fame selection. We wish him well and expect he will again be considered once he has ‘stood the test of time.

Today is the day when most people consider that the WSOP truly begins. The $40,000 NL Holdem Event kicked off today to celebrate 40 years of the World Series of Poker. Two highly noticeable players that did not play in today’s event were Gus Hansen and Allen Cunningham. A lot of players are surprised at the fact that neither player showed up to play in the event.
