Good call. I'll do that.

On my TODO list. Looking into a few options to get away from the annoyances/liabilities of PayPal.

Definitely interested. Count me in.

fwiw I'd push the 40yo age bracket out beyond 50

You're going to get every entry with a certain 48yo which just cancels it out and makes it somewhat pointless. If they want him would rather see people have to sacrifice a WSOP winner or Nth American than get an auto-pick

is it 26 and under or 25 and under?
05-08-2013 , 05:00 PM
Under 26 means anything up to and not including 26. Oldest a player could be is 25 years and 364 days

beyond 50 folks might only play very few events so I figured that was the reason it was done but I hear what your saying

yes that is right

1 Player under 26 years old c) Age is determined by age at start of WSOP. Must be able to confirm player's age if disputed.

finding under 26 year old for me is harder than I thought... all the young guns are now over 26

what if hellmuth and ivey brick everything this summer? what if they have an average summer but you pick someone who has a better summer? stranger things have happened.

I remember 2 years ago I did not pick ivey for my fantasy team (I was one of the very few who didn't) and he didn't play a single event because of the whole black friday/full tilt thing.

I don't see the reason to ban or restrict the ability to pick a certain player. It's still a level playing field.

yes that is so true, tom dwan last year burned me completely, that is why you have to do your homework. Like reading the news, twitter etc

there's a few really obvious ones you'll be kicking yourself about if you don't remeber

Looked into LeagueSafe.com, they don't seem to have an easy way to do non-NFL,NBA,NHL,MLB leagues and don't accept paypal, so they're off the table.

e.g. Matt Marafioti is still 25. He'll show up on a few teams as, you know, a 2+2 Pokercast fan favorite.

Would love to add a category, 'any player not in Top 50 or 100 in POY pts last 2 years'. Basically a chance to pick a 'comeback player' or 'breakthrough player'.

Funny, I was thinking about similar just now.

My friend's fiancé is among the group to get an bid to the WSOP National Championship. Just running really hot right now. It would be fun to have an excuse to pick him up. So a category like "no WSOP final tables in the last 10 years" or something would just about cover it.

Either way, I also like the idea -- sort of our version of picking the Florida Gulf Coast of this year's WSOP.

We could still add it. Nobody has given me a list yet. Maybe take out over 40?
05-10-2013 , 10:08 AM
Never been on the pokercast/rounders + ivey category?

which are we doing? 50 or 100? because obviously there's a pretty big difference between them. My vote would be for 100 because there are lots and lots of big big names who weren't in the top 50 over the last 2 years.

100.

JD - Is it possible for the first post to be edited to take out >40 and put in not in top 100? Thanks in advance.
