The clock is ticking down to the start of the final event at the Shoe, the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Finals. The size of this year's event is staggering; there are expected to be anywhere from 1500 - 2000 players at this year's final event, with at least 800 online qualifiers. The odds for there to be another Chris Moneymaker this year are pretty good, considering the number of online qualifiers in the field.
Will this be another year where an online qualifier or relative unknown wins, such as Varkonyi winning in 2002 or Moneymaker winning in 2003? Or will a pro like Ivey or Lederer take the event this year? Does Moneymaker have a chance of repeating? Post your comments below..
