    It would be cool to see Dennis Phillips in the final table again. Quite a story to see how he would fare the second time around.

    I’m gonna go…

    Phil Ivey (obv)
    Andy Lichtenberger
    Nick Maimone
    James Akenhead
    Jonathan Tamayo
    Donkeybomber
    Antonio Esfandiari
    Jeff Shulman
    Thai Tran

    Further, if I could bet AGAINST Darvin, I would. I like Dennis Phillips, I just think it’s going to be hard for him to get there from 56 out. Sebok is short so he’s not included either. Plus, I can’t put EVERY big name in the list! 😉

    if you take the first letter of each name, they’re an anagram for:

    Blab Vamps Bled Still

    (or Bald Balls Blimp Vest, but the first one makes a tiny bit more sense.)
