Tom Schneider vs. Gavin Smith
Clonie Gowen vs. Jennifer Tilly

    Can’t see your predictions without signing in… But the bracket itself is great! I printed it out so I can follow along today. (I’m a nerd, I know.)

    Look for an “ALL-IN” and “INSTANT CALL” on the first hand with Moneymaker and Yang

    Go ahead and sign up. You know how loathe I am to create new logins for myself, but I did it for this one and have not regretted it yet.

    This way you can make predictions as well and, I think, we can compete against each other.

    I don’t think I’m giving too much away by saying I have Phil Hellmuth beating Tom Schneider, and my final four looks like:

    Bill Edler d. Hooman Nikzad
    Howard Lederer d. Freddy Deeb

    Lederer d. Edler

    Is Tom wearing a Full Tilt badge in that photo???

  5. DanM

    Yes indeed. He’s been brought up from the practice squad.

  6. DanM

    Well dammit, the guy I picked to win it all is out in the first round. Clearly rigged.
