My Picks to Win Their First Bracelet at the 2010 WSOP

Andy Bloch 225x300
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.

The official over at the World Series of Poker have been hinting over the last couple of days that there might be an All-Star event at this year's WSOP. Last year we had the Champions Invitational where any living WSOP Main Event winner could participate. This year, the WSOP is asking fans for a list of 20 players to round out an All-Star field. I decided that I would give my 20 picks and my criteria for selection.

Did You Hear? Norman Chad Cashed at the WSOP

Norman Chad 212x300
For those of you that didn’t watch ESPN’s WSOP Main Event coverage, Norman Chad cashed at the WSOP this year. Sunday night, I actually sat and watched about 3 hours worth of the Main Event for the first time in a long time. I must admit that part of it was due to the fact it was the only thing on among the paltry few channels my hotel room had. The other reason was the fact that Ivey was getting a lot of face time.
