      Actually atm Daniel Colman is really tough to beat at tournaments. Even though I don`t like the guy, if must choose a favourite to win, it would be him. He has runned good since the One Drop victory but also played really well against the best.

      Ben Lamb has only two cashes since 2011 WSOP so interesting to see if he makes it to FT. He`s mainly CG player though.
