Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

I think it would be interesting to have a WSOP thread devoted to all the scammers in the industry.

Like, how is Brad Booth being treated?
Has anyone talked to Carter Phillips about his misgivings?
Has there been any witnessed backlash against FTP red pros?
Any more verbal backlash against Annie Duke?
How did Lindgren react to his bubble?

I hear bits and pieces in scattered threads. But it would be interesting to aggregate all of those happenings into one thread.

I like the idea. But mods are the ones who matter.

Its not about soccer (lol soccer but thats a different debate) this is a wsop thread, to discuss things that go on at, funnily enough the wsop. Things happened, they got discussed. Sorry if you dont like it.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Of course, LOL @ me.

I don't think those chip counts are right though; they called out that count earlier, and I'm pretty sure Baker has won at least a couple hundred thousand since.

But I suck at railing without commentary, so WTF do I know.

WSOP Fantasy Game help thread

Hello, I don't know if this is the right section of the forum, but I thought it was related to poker ''gossip'' so that's why I opened the thread here, however mods, feel free to move in other sections if necessary.
I organised (together with my friends) a fantasy-poker game based on WSOP tournaments. I'm italian, here in Italy we have a very popular game, called ''fantacalcio'' (fantasy football game) in which we try to guess what footballers will play better, match after match, according to the marks of the most famous sport newspapers. So we tried to do the same thing with poker. Rules are:
-ten players for every team
-points are the $ that the player will win in the tournament, so every ITM= points
-the team can change tournament after tournament, and every player can be selected
-the team must be comunicated the day before the start of the selected tournament, within 23:59 (italian time)
-every team will have a ''captain'' who will earn double points in case of ITM

I think that the best strategies are: 1) trying to guess what players will effectively play the tournament (but it's not that easy to know), 'cause no partecipation=no points obviously 2) trying to have an advantage by selecting strong players that almost no other team will select, since most of the teams will almost always select well known players like Ivey and Hellmuth.
Next events we selected are:

Event #45: The Poker Players Championship $50.000
Event #50: No-Limit Hold'em $5.000
Event #53: No-Limit Hold'em - $1.500
Event #57: No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed $10.000
Event #59A: No-Limit Hold'em - $1.000
Event #60: 2-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit) $10.000
Event #61A: No-Limit Hold'em Main Event $10.000

so let's start with the first: who do you think will surely (or almost surely) play 50k$ 8game event?
sorry for my imperfect english, I hope this is understandable

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Apparently I'm wrong; they just called out bascially the same chip counts as they return from break.

Social networks such as Twitter will be helpful.

Bakes = David "Bakes" Baker AFAIK.

FBT is currently playing David Baker; not sure if he has an account here.
