This is a excellent final four. Probably the best ever two old school players vs the future of poker. can''t get any better then that.
we all make wrong choices ah well its life.
Fantasy heads up final matusow vs hellmuth or cates vs hastings
Sleeper pick to win the whole thing Joe Serock a.k.a the new huck seed
Rousso is a sell out that i agree with and she is just a pretty face in poker. There are a lot better female players then her, but she is a pretty face who is from America and yet wears a team pro france emblem?
honestly matusow over blom is not surprising. The stylee that mike plays is perfect against blom, but i do see greenstein vs ivey in the spades final
best match up in the spades is blom vs matusow
best match up in the clubs is duhamal vs esfradari
best match up in the diamonds is dwan vs brunson
best match up in the hearts is smith vs hellmuth
best match-up for the clubs is deeb vs linchenburger
best match-up for spades is phil laak vs phil ivey
best match-up for the hearts is cheong vs busquet
best match-up for the diamonds is a tie between mericer vs smith and seidel vs dwan
As far as snubs the list includes Marvin Rettenmaier, Guy Laliberté, Elisabeth Hille, Johnny Chan and the person who should be there because the NBC event didn't happen in 2012 is 2011 main event champion Puis Heniz. I know he did nothing in 2012, but since this event didn't happen last year i figure he deserves to be in here for the accomplishment he did in 2011.
Ok I've always had a opinion on the list and now here it is. There should be automatic bids into this event like the WSOP & WSOPE main event winner, WPT Championship winner, EPT winner and the Aussie millions winner. Also the WSOP player of the year should also get a automatic bid. That makes five players and now for the rest. The past winner of the NBC event is also a automatic bid. There should be four celebrity/billionaire in all one in each bracket. That makes 10 players. There should also be a november niner of that year in there as well. There should also be some legends of the game playing and the rest should be taking for the GPI. I understand people want known faces, but reward the players that have grinded it out and have a high ranking on that list. It is not fair to them that they get snubbed for a guy like mike matasow or john hennigen
