Here is a list of people I am gunning for today:
Nik Persaud – a quality poker player and a sound guy. The Blackbelt poker instructor is due a win on the big stage.Doyle Brunson – amongst the chip leaders and going strong. If Doyle wins this Event there would be much happiness all round.James Akenhead/Praz Bansi/Karl Mahrenholz – the boys from the Hit Squad have already made a mark on the British poker scene and, thanks to Akenhead and his November Nine antics, are well on their way to global recognition/Arnaud Mattern – Recently snapped up by Poker Stars on their Pro roster, this Frenchman is a cool customer.Dave Ulliott – Isn’t is about time the Devilfish made a splash again? I think so. C’mon the Devilfish!Thor Drexel – This young scandi is on a hot run of form after a final table at the EPO and Event #1 here at the WSOPE. He is aggressive and has some moves up his sleeves.Yevgeniy Timoshenko – Arguably one of the best young poker players in the world. He recently picked up the WCOOP Main Event trophy and already has a WPT title to his name. This guy is the shit!Teddy Sheringham – well why not? It’s Teddy SheringhamAnnette Obrestad/John Juanda - obviously if either of these two win it would be an incredible achievement.Table 1Seat 1: Daniel Negreanu - 113100Seat 2: Jani Vilmunen - 65500Seat 3: Kim Wooka - 22000Seat 4: Men Nguyen - 27500Seat 5: Arnaud Mattern - 86600Seat 6: Jean Montury - 25800Seat 7: Leo Margets - 48300Seat 8: Eli Berg - 91900Seat 9: Micheal Wang - 60700Table 2Seat 1: Liz Lieu - 184400Seat 2: Stephen Kjerstad - 41800Seat 3: Alex Millar - 47600Seat 4: Julian Thew - 73100Seat 5: Thomas Bichon - 102000Seat 6: Danny Wong - 74000Seat 7: Robert Willis - 24800Seat 8: Tommy Vedes - 147100Seat 9: Nikhil Persaud - 65700Table 3Seat 1: Freddy Deeb - 61200Seat 2: Eric Liu - 51100Seat 3: Chris Bjorin - 142800Seat 4: Annette Obrestad - 90500Seat 5: Sandor Demjan - 209000Seat 6: Alex Wice - 144000Seat 7: Andrew Lichtenberger - 131300Seat 8: Andre Akkari - 58300Seat 9: Henri Kettunen - 76000Table 4Seat 1: Philip Tom - 84000Seat 2: Christian Harder - 198700Seat 3: Jason Mercier - 202300Seat 4: Teddy Sheringham - 74800Seat 5: Farzad Bonyadi - 40900Seat 6: James Akenhead - 178000Seat 7: Konstantin Buecherl - 99800Seat 8: Markus Ristola - 205000Seat 9: Barry Shulman - 111200Table 5Seat 1: Michael Duerr - 72700Seat 2: John Tabatabai - 160100Seat 3: Fredrik Andersson - 117300Seat 4: Samuel Chartier - 22600Seat 5: Michael Fasco - 138500Seat 6: Marc Goodwin - 38100Seat 7: Ran Azor - 54100Seat 8: John Kabbaj - 127600Table 6Seat 1: John Juanda - 38900Seat 2: Steven Fung - 191000Seat 3: Antonio Esfandiari - 173300Seat 4: Benny Chen - 92500Seat 5: Mathias Kuerschner - 101300Seat 6: Matt Hawrilenko - 129700Seat 7: Brian Powell - 105400Seat 8: Sam Trickett - 63400Table 7Seat 1: Ian Munns - 528300Seat 2: Praz Bansi - 299000Seat 3: Andrew Chen - 48000Seat 4: Hieu Van La - 86800Seat 5: Steve Zolotow - 191100Seat 6: Moritz Schmejkal - 106900Seat 7: Micheal Comer - 12700Seat 8: J Keys - 29900Table 8Seat 1: Keith Hawkins - 121000Seat 2: Dave Ulliott - 174000Seat 3: Jens Kyllönen - 136300Seat 4: David Docherty - 216200Seat 5: Todd Brunson - 51600Seat 6: Ben Roberts - 33200Seat 7: Tony Cousineau - 23400Seat 8: Fabrizio Baldassari - 92000Table 9Seat 1: Steven Levy - 50400Seat 2: Mohsin Charania - 73000Seat 3: Laurence Houghton - 140100Seat 4: Ram Vaswani - 202500Seat 5: Oyvind Riisem - 255300Seat 6: Tommy Pavlicek - 190700Seat 7: Amnon Filippi - 216500Seat 8: Sargon Ruya - 32500Table 10Seat 1: Sami Kelopuro - 17100Seat 2: Justin Smith - 48200Seat 3: Doyle Brunson - 210900Seat 4: Chalermchai Mahagitsiri - 31100Seat 5: Thor Drexel - 40000Seat 6: Daniel Drescher - 64200Seat 7: Craig Burgess - 133400Seat 8: Christian Kruel - 65100Table 11Seat 1: Yevgeniy Timoshenko - 192100Seat 2: Peter Gould - 102400Seat 3: Tobias Reinkemeier - 154400Seat 4: Robin Keston - 122600Seat 5: Antoine Saout - 90100Seat 6: Nadeem Riaz - 126000Seat 7: Jonathan Aguiar - 125000Seat 8: Joe Beevers - 113100
