Cheong for Feature Table please.
I don't see how they would put JRB's table up again but with Elezra on it there's a good chance they might.
The table with Sorel and Devo is the dark horse.
Maybe they put Lamb's table up again, JP Kelly also on that one.
I don't see them taking E-Dog's or Cunningham's table since those are not really stacked at first glance.
Same for Tony Hashem.
But we all know how much ESPN loves their seasoned pros.
Steve Brecher is a regular on the circuit, including a WPT Championship FT and a WPT bracelet at Bay 101. More importantly, he's one of the nicest guys in all of poker. He's also a long-time 2+2 poster.
Steve is famous for never telling people "good luck". He believes the luck will take care of itself. So Steve, play well.
