Horserace Pokering

by , Apr 23, 2008 | 1:22 pm

Just for funsies, I thought I’d make predictions on the final 6 with 61 players left — hey, if they can change a rule mid-tourney, why can’t I change my theoretical horses? So that was last night, but I fell asleep before the official chip counts went up … hence no post until now, with 45 players remaining, and all “my guys” still in (sorry, Tom, I just didn’t “feel” a monster comeback). I did make one change, however, after seeing play develop a little bit today:

Gus Hansen
Jeff King Steve Billrakis
TJ Cloutier
Jonathan Kalmar
Robert Mizrachi
Tom Dwan/Durrr

Anyone got an over/under on how many of these I’ll get right? Or perhaps their own picks based on who’s well-chipped, favorably seated, and generally playing well of late?

    I guess it’s a little late to say 3, since that’s what you’re down to (too bad you made the one change), so let’s say the over/under is 1 1/2.

    That’s kinda what I was thinking, UR … 1.5.

    Obviously Jeff King is going to win now (whoever he is), so he should feel pretty good about being exed out early.

    Right now Gus looks pretty solid, so if Dwan makes it you’re over, if not, under. (I know, I should NEVER assume that the guy with the commanding chip lead won’t blow up).
