The $40K buy in was special and most big name pros had prop bets on the total number of entries. (Barry Greenstein had over 220). It wound up being 201. If you figure the $50K HORSE only gets about 150, it's easy to see why so many people skipped the $40K. As the series goes on, I would expect most of the pros to be playing these events.
Best advice for picking people who might actually play that day are to look at who may have won that bracelet in the past (ie: Mike Matusow won an Omaha H/L bracelet). Plus if they busted from the other day's event or are about to bust, they usually will begin play in the newer tourney.
At least FT gives you 15 people. So it's a good chance most of your people will play.
