My Money Is On The Babe
Now that we are a little over 1/2 way through the BBT, we can start to get a feel for who is likely to take this thing down. My money is on SummerBabe. She seems to have a great handle on how to work your way through these bloggaments and score big points. No one thought that she would make such an effort to attend these lowly MTTs. They are much below her stakes, and the poor level of play must be hard for her to adjust to. But, she is clearly making the required adjusments to be successful in these events. I will list my favorites with odds to take it down and comments.
Summer Babe: Current points leader and second in points/event. If she continues to play in most of the remaining events she is the favorite. (2-1 to win)
Bayne_S: Has played in all of the events and is a very consistant performer. Also has the ability to put a big score up. The guys above Bayne_s better watch out. (5-1 to win)
oossuuu754: Second overall, and has played in all of the events. Started off hot, and is starting to put things together again. Has a big chance if he plays them all out. (5-1 to win)
MiamiDon: Started out hot, and looked like he would just leave us in his dust. Has slowed a bit, but still sits in 4th overall. Has the ability to win these, so is always a threat to move back into the lead. (5-1 to win)
Astin: Current points/event leader and 6th overall. If Astin can find a way to play in most of the remaining events, he can make a solid run at this. (8-1 to win)
MikeMaloney: Current cash leader on the BBT, and 5th/6th in overall in rank & P/E rank respectively. I like people who have the ability to take these down because they are always a threat to jump into the lead from nowhere. Mike will need to play most of the remaining events for a good shot (8-1 to win)
RecessRampage: A solid performer (8th overall, 5th in P/E), but is not currently playing in enough events to have a great chance. If he can find a way to play most of the remaining events he has a shot (12-1 to win)
Waffles: Got off to a good start, but has cooled a bit. Plays in most events so should continue to accumulate points. He will need a couple of top 3 finishes soon to move back into contention (20-1 to win)
Longshot Pool: I would put Drizz, Mattazuma, Mookie, and myself in here. All of us are top 10 in points/event, but have only played 13/22 events so far. If all of us continue to play at this pace then the chance that one from the list wins is (20-1 to win). If someone from this group (will not be me) steps up and plays most of the remaining events that persons chance will be (10-1 to win).
