In, went with some of the players more likely to play the non-holdem events and those who will have some bracelet bets on. Hoping Group 9 do well and rep the Brits!!!

One of the fun things that we should be able to do is publish the stats for how often each player is picked after entries are closed.

That and I made it a point to pick players who I thought were more likely to play a full schedule i.e. I took Faraz Jaka over Hassan Habib because I think that he will play a lot more although I think that Habib is a more consistent player.

Honestly, I believe we will soon find out (next couple years) that Mercier is a fluke. he is very good but I don't believe "world Class".

Haha, I took the exact same line with Jaka>Habib. Exact same thought process. Great minds think alike maybe?

I'm sure there are many well known/successful poker players left off this list. It's not like Daniel said these are the best of the best. It looks like he grouped them into the specific categories for a reason.

In as well, also had the hardest time with group 1. Wanted so badly to go with Katchalov, but how can you not pick Ivey knowing he has bracelet bets? I think Siedel will dominate Hellmuth and Blom is an easy lock knowing he is just trying to prove he is a dominant player in not just cash games. Also lol at some of the grouping. Asians, Easterb Europeans etc. And thanks to Daniel for putting this on. A real class act and great ambassador for the game.

Is there a way to edit your picks? I messed up on the tie-breaker.

If you need to make a change with regards to picks or tiebreaker, you can PM me and I'll adjust it (Before the May 28th deadline of course).You can also look up your picks & points anytime by going to the leaderboard page and doing a search for your FCP Forum Username: http://fullcontactpoker.com/wsop2012/leaderboard.phpSince my time has been occupied programming this system over the past week, I haven't had a chance to tweak the forum's performance. I'm going to make that my top priority going forward and will keep you posted.
