WSOP Europe Predictions Revisited

The WSOP Europe has reached their final table with Shawn Buchanan, Chris Moorman, and Jake Cody headlining.  Normally I would wait until after Main Event was finished to update my predictions, but since none of my predictions are impacted by the final table, I figured I would go ahead and share how I did.

Phil Hellmuth Will Have One Strong Showing and May Take the POY Lead - Push

After Hellmuth whiffed Events 2 through 7, I almost considered this a loss, but since my wording said "may take the lead" I get to call this a push.  I know, I am angle shooting my own predictions.

Ben Lamb Whiffs the WSOP-E - Win

In a way, it might be good that Lamb whiffed the WSOP-E.  Maybe he is saving up his run good for the November Nine.  I think he would take that.

Team Europe Retains Caesars Cup - Lose

When I predicted this, Doyle Brunson, Huck Seed, and Dario Minieri were all still playing the event.  Normally I would throw this prediction out based on the circumstances changing.  There is just one problem with that.  Phil and Johnny took two out of the three matches.

In other words, two of the reasons I felt America's would lose are the reason they won.  I am not saying we would have gotten the same result had Brunson and Seed not played.

Moral of the story is don't underestimate the old guys.

At Least One Big Name Will Take a Bracelet - Win

Thank you to Michael Mizrachi for putting me over the hump.  His second career bracelet kept the trend alive of big names taking bracelets at the WSOP-E.

Jake Cody may join him should he take the Main, and I think it is safe to say that Shawn Buchanan has made a name for himself after his impressive string of cashes at this year's WSOP-E.

There you have it.  Thanks to my angle shoot, I am 2-1-1 on my WSOP-E predictions this year.
