I did this thread last year (with pretty bad results) but I figured I'd throw out some more predictions this year.

This is just for fun, I'm not interested in any action on these.

So here we go...

* Daniel Negreanu has stated he'd put up 100-1 for anyone who didn't think he'd win a bracelet. Well I don't think he will.

* Allen Cunningham will tie Doyle as the only player to win a bracelet in 4 consecutive years.

* Michael Binger will win a bracelet and break the most cashes for one wsop with 10.

* Phil Hellmuth will win bracelet #12

* Johnny Chan will not win a bracelet

* Doyle Brunson will not win a bracelet, but will make a final table

* Phil Ivey will win 2 bracelets

* The final of the HORSE Tourney will be Ivey defeating Brunson.

* Erik Seidel will win bracelet #9 tying him with Johnny Moss

* Tom "durr" Dwan will have 4 cashes and 1 final table, but no bracelets.

* The Main Event will draw more entrants than last year (6,358)

* The "November Nine" will contain 3 well known pros.

* Jerry Yang will not make it to Day 2 of the ME

* Jamie Gold will make it to Day 4 of the ME

* Chris Moneymaker will not make it to Day 2 of the ME, but will have 1 cash during the Series

* A woman will NOT make the ME final table

* Phil Gordon will not win a bracelet

Maybe we should take bets on some of our predictions... just $5 or $10 here and there throughout the summer...

I know there are some of these that i'd like to place a bet on...:)

I'll have a crack at a few:

- Barry Greenstein will make the final table of the $50K HORSE
- Nick Frangos will win his first bracelet
- Marco Traniello will make at least seven cashes
- Humberto Brenes will make at least two final tables, without winning a bracelet
- John Juanda will finish in the top 10 for Player of the Year
- Chris Ferguson will win a bracelet
- Phil Ivey won't win a bracelet
- Erick Lindgren won't win a bracelet
- Kathy Liebert will make the final table of the ladies event, but won't win

An amateur will win the ME and everyone and his dog will claim he is bad for poker and a luck-sack with more lucky winning hands than Mr Lucky from Lucksville :D

Annette Oberstad if she plays will win the ladies.

She is still 19. And my guess is that when she is 21 in 2010, she'll win bracelet(s) in more than just the Ladies tourney.

Im guessing she wil break the bracelet record when she starts to play the US WSOP.
I dont get how alot of people call her a donk,she is just a top super aggresive player that haves proven her self time and time again and there a still people(on this site included) that just say she´s a luckbox.

^^ She will forever have my respect after she played a hand in the european wsop. basically she raised with 4,6 in the co and was called by the button. Flop came 6,9,k. She then checked, villain bet, she raised, villain 3bet, then she 4bet pushed all in with bottom pair no kicker. The villain then proceeded to fold 7,8

Also is anyone actually willing to take any action on their predictions???

My prediction : it will be very unlikely that I win any bracelets this year, I guess you have to attend to win or something.

I personally think that Phil Ivey will shock the world. He might not win the ME, but he will get to the final table. He will win at least 1 event of decent size and buy-in.

phil helmuth would win every bracelet in the hold em' events if it weren't for bad luck.. lol..... that's my prediction (not really).

BTW... did anybody see the PAD hu..? KK of Antonius vs AA of Chan in the first hand of heads up play. It just went down.

Now that the WSOP is (basically) over, let's see how bad I did...

* Daniel Negreanu has stated he'd put up 100-1 for anyone who didn't think he'd win a bracelet. Well I don't think he will. WRONG

* Allen Cunningham will tie Doyle as the only player to win a bracelet in 4 consecutive years. WRONG

* Michael Binger will win a bracelet and break the most cashes for one WSOP with 10. WRONG and WRONG

* Phil Hellmuth will win bracelet #12 WRONG

* Johnny Chan will not win a bracelet RIGHT

* Doyle Brunson will not win a bracelet, but will make a final table RIGHT and WRONG

* Phil Ivey will win 2 bracelets WRONG

* The final of the HORSE Tourney will be Ivey defeating Brunson. WRONG

* Erik Seidel will win bracelet #9 tying him with Johnny Moss WRONG

* Tom "durr" Dwan will have 4 cashes and 1 final table, but no bracelets. WRONG and RIGHT

* The Main Event will draw more entrants than last year (6,358) RIGHT

* The "November Nine" will contain 3 well known pros. WRONG

* Jerry Yang will not make it to Day 2 of the ME WRONG

* Jamie Gold will make it to Day 4 of the ME WRONG

* Chris Moneymaker will not make it to Day 2 of the ME, but will have 1 cash during the Series WRONG and WRONG

* A woman will NOT make the ME final table RIGHT

* Phil Gordon will not win a bracelet
RIGHT

So 6 out of 21 for another suck-tacular year of predictions. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
