Sorting through the list of remaining players, the surnames with the most players still in contention to win the main event hardly come as surprise, based pretty much on world population.

Mathematically, a Chan or Nguyen is still probably your best bet, and the Johnsons and Changs have kinda disappointed their global families. But one name stands out as being a bit different than all the rest, thus highlighting the uniqueness of four brothers going deep.

    It’s a stretch to count Lee last-name and Lee middle-name as the same, imo. If you are doing that, then what about people with the first name Kim? Not a “Kimberly” left in the whole bunch?

    I think you’re right about Kim, that CK Hua probably didn’t belong in there — so they’ve only got five. But the Lee’s, I interpreted to be female players, with a married name attached to their maiden name, or vice-versa … so I’ll let them stick.

    How about the Le’s?

    No Mathers? I have a Lieutenant named Shawn Mathers, he is actually the brother of Jerry Mathers from the “Leave it to Beaver” show.

    Whats in a name anyway?
