WSOP Fantasy Bet

My friend and I picked teams again this year.  Sorry to OPL for not posting/making this available for everyone.  It was semi-last minute, and, basically, I forgot.  Scoring (same as last time):
 
Cash 100
Final Table 300
3rd 500
2nd 700
1st 1,000
  
If the event is a 5k we multiply the points by 1.5.
If it's 10k we multiply by 2.
The 50k Player's Championship (8-game mix) and the 25k NL 6-Max will be multiplied by 3.
Women's, Seniors, and TOC events are not included.
 
Me----------------------Ryan
  
Daniel Negreanu---------Phil Ivey
Barry Greenstein--------Gus Hansen
Phil Hellmuth-----------JC Tran
Jason Mercier-----------Erick Lindgren
Jeffrey Lisandro--------Scott Clements
Mike Matusow------------Allen Cunningham
Chris Ferguson----------Isaac Baron
Gavin Griffin-----------Steve Gross
Daniel Alaei------------Ted Forrest
Annette Obrestad--------Antonio Esfandiari
 
Overall, I like my team.  I think it is really important to get players that can play all the games as they will have a much better chance of final tabling a 300 person Stud8 tourney than a 4k person NLH tourney.  I think Mercier at #4 was a stretch for me.  Also, not sure how much Ferguson, Griffin and Alaei are going to be playing.  I wish I could take Bonomo and Binger in place of two of my later picks in hindsight.  For Ryan, I think Gus at #2 was really reaching.  I also wonder how much AC, Forrest, and Antonio will play.
 
I destroyed Ryan in this bet two years ago, but we didn't do it last year.  I think the teams are a little more even this year.  I do think I have a slight edge however.

Play Money Legend

Ay ay ay.  So I took today off because I had several things to do for Mother's Day.  But, while watching basketball for a little bit (Wow Rondo 28pts, 18rbds, 13 assts or something like that)I fired up a couple play money tournaments for fun.  One was a 2k 90 person SNG.  Won that.  Another was a 2.5k 367 person MTT and won that.  And now tonight I played a 1,155 person 250 play chip 6-Max tourney.  Just finished winning that.  3/3 today.  Wish I could post these results in the real money side.  Either way it was finally fun playing poker with it not meaning anything.

Dream Schedule

I am still super low...$3.07 right now...just playing $1 MTTs hoping to hit something otherwise will reload in a few weeks.  Either way, I am looking forward to the day where I have $75+ on FTP and Stars and can play the following schedule:
 
4:20 FTP $2 DS
5:00 Stars $2.5 12.5k Guar.
5:05 FTP $2 DS
5:20 Stars $1 1k Cap
5:55 FTP $2 DS
6:00 Stars $1 4k Guar.
6:20 FTP $2
7:00 Stars $1 3k Guar.
8:00 Stars $0.5
8:15 FTP $1 DS
8:15 Stars $2 4k Guar.
10:00 Stars $.25 $100 added
10:05 FTP $2
11:00 Stars $2 5k Guar.
11:05 FTP $2
12:00 Stars $2 3k Guar.
1:20 FTP $2 DS
1:30 FTP $1 Ferg
 
18 tournaments.  Total buy-ins: $28.25.  Average buy-in: about $1.50.  Would be about 12 hours of play.  If I were to get up over like $150 on a site I would probably include $3's and $2 6-maxes and $1 rebuys.
