Back in February, I did a blog post with my picks for the Tunica main event. Out of the 480 entrants, I picked five to cash. Of my five picks, two cashed. The three that didn't? One suffered a bad beat, one was sick and I have no idea what happened to the third he was out so fast. Even still, I was pretty happy with my choices and I stand by them.
So I'm going to try it again. This field is going to be tough. Sure, there are a few one hit wonders in there, but for the most part.. this is the Superbowl for the circuit. The best of the grinders and tournament trail junkies. These guys couldn't just plunk down $10,000 or satellite their way in, they had to EARN this. Which makes a victory in this field more significant than a hearty dose of run-good in the main event.
If this were a horse race, these are the horses I would bet on. And speaking of betting on people, of the below people.. Scott Clark and Will Souther are both selling pieces of their action. Matt Stout, who is not in the freeroll, is also selling some of his WSOP action. I'm more than likely going to buy pieces of all three of these guys. If you'd like to do the same, and can't figure out how to get in touch with them.. hit me up and I'll point you in the right direction.

|I wonder if he'll still be pimpin' Doyle's Room with the shutdowns?|

|He looks so young here. Probably because he is. I'm getting old.|
