Select five players who you think will do well in the next Million Dollar tourney on party poker (takes place on Sunday).

You will get points matching their position. The lowest combined total points wins.

For Example:-

PokerAAA finishes 1000th
PokerBBB finishes 1st
PokerCCC finishes 1500th
PokerDDD finishes 50th
Poker EEE finishes 400th

You score :- 1000+1+1500+50+400 = 2951
If 2951 is the lowest you win!

If your named player does not enter he will be awarded 3000pts. NB There is normally 4000 or so entries.

To add a little bit more to the interest, if anyone selects the winner in their list of 5, I will give them a small prize ($50).

As a little side-bet type prediction, I dont think anyone will score a combined points of less 6000. Anyone got another prediction?

Anyway to start the thing rolling I'll submit my list of 5 :-

tacoroy
Kvelerslange
BigRiskkyy
pastika
VeniceBeachy

I would have liked to have found room for memphie as he is so tight he squeaks, but dont think he enters this tourney enough.

Anyway, gla

Welly

ps post your lists on here and I'll add up the scores on Monday after the event is complete

I dont think anyone else has any idea who plays at Party Poker, but it would be a great idea if used for the wsop final. Each person picks 5 pro's.

Right, I'll do the WSOP one as well.

Same rules, but the points score for no-shows is 5000pts

NB If more than one person gets the winner in their list of 5 then the tie-breaker is whoever has the lowest total points

My WSOP five :-

Ram Vaswani
Men Nguyen
Scotty Nguyen
Annie Duke (yes a female!)
Phil Helmuth


BTW, I have a range of bets which I am hopeful about, but how about this for the worst odds ever :- Royal Flush to be the winning hand in the WSOP main event 175-1 LMAO

...No Raymer? Only pro to cash in all the 2k+ entry tournaments he has played in. I guess his track record isn't good enough? Lol..

Harrington
Ivey
Raymer
Hellmuth

Here's the link to the odds thread.

https://www.cardschat.com/showthread.php?t=70160

My 5?

Andrew Black (moral winner of last years game) - 2000/1
Roland De Wolfe (UK's top player - Devilfish has won nothing for years) - 2000/1
Patrick Antonious - 100/1
Gavin Smith (token US player) - 1000/1
Young Phan - 750/1 (never heard of him, but there's usually a Vietnamese player kicking ass).

That's horrific, but it's not the worst odds i've ever seen. Victor Chandler quoted Johnny Moss at 100/1 for last years WSOP - he's been dead for about 10 years!

Have you got details of the site (or a link) - i'll email that to a gambling magazine i subscribe too - I wonder if they'll offer odds on the flipside of that bet? (i.e 1/300 that the winning hand ISN'T a Royal Flush).

Yeh, I thought about Raymer for my 5. But thought it unlikely he will emerge through the field again.

I also read a biog of his last two WSOPs and it seems that quite a few people think he is a little heavy pre-flop. Anyway, now i've said this, go watch him win again! :)

Any more lists of 5 for the Party Poker one (which takes place today) or for the WSOP Main Event (starts 28th July) then stick them on here.

Good Luck

1st :- PreciousLor - 10713pts (thanks to good performances by Wezzee 92nd, and WiredOnly 450th)
2nd :- GreatDane - 12549
3rd :- Welly - 14513 (I blame it on tacoroy, undoubtedly the tightest of the previous winners, and he bombs out in 5482 :( )

Right, onto the WSOP....so far we've got 5 or 6 people entering. Just list 5 players you think will do well. Good Luck.
