Name your TOP 5 IPT Las Vegas players. Who's your dark horse? - 07-06-2006, 06:06 PM

Only about 2 weeks to go before the much awaited IPT Las Vegas tournament. Who do you think will be in the top 5? Who's your dark horse?

Since there will be 6 players in the final round robin, I'm going to name my final 6 instead of 5.

Final Round Robin:
Orcullo
Pagulayan
Reyes
Manalo
Lining
Souquet

Finals:
Orcullo
Pagulayan

Winner:
Pagulayan

Dark Horse:
Edwin Montal

My favorites are:

Reyes
Manalo
Pagulayen
Bustamante
Orcola

Yeah that's right all five of my picks are phillipino. It would be hard to bet against any of these guys. My other picks are dark horses, they have the ability to win but the conventional wisdom says they will not.

THANKS SATMAN! I'm getting excited now.......

Now, for my top picks...

MANALO! (I was a believer very early in the KOH )
REYES (may need a few magic tricks, but he has em)
BUSTA (this dog can hunt any type of animal!)
Richard Broumpton (the British are coming! and there are many of them!)
George Breedlove (may seem sentimental, but his strong focus will show)
Mark Tadd (terribly frightening that he can come back after a long absence and compete, but I'm a believer)

Top Woman Finisher: ME! (Well, I might consider Karen and Allison......)

Country with the most "unrecognized" *STARS* in this tournament: Great Britain! These guys play the game well and - although they may not do it in the first event or two - I think they will rise to the top.

My next five: Appleton, Daulton, Matlock, Groce, Souquet.

Oh heck, I'm gonna go watch some more of the Accustats 8-ball tapes!

Tammie Jones
