      2009 is over and we witnessed some wild action in its last months. Like most of you predicted, players like Patrik Antonius or Phil Ivey emerged as biggest winners. durrrr was also on that list but his matches against Isildur1 got the best of him.
      What do you think will happen in 2010? Do you think that the same faces will rock the high stakes world or will we see new players rising to take the veterans' money?

      (Note to self: do not take BRM lessons from Isildur1)

      As long as Isildur stays away :p And he doesn't try taking on other top pros at Omaha, I tihnk durrrr will be the biggest winner, just because I think he has the edge over everyone in HU NLHE

      PA, durrrr, galfond, cole south, urindanger, eric123, isildur1 or one of the many good PLO5k regs who breaks through to the highest stakes

      phil ivey doesn't play enough for it to be very likely, but of course he could easily run hot, as he has in the last couple of years

      david benyamine doesn't seem to play much now, and loses too much in non-PLO anyway

      LarsLuzak is too bad at PLO

      Ziigmund is too much of a gambler, he's not suddenly going to stop having days where he loses 1m due to alkohol, tilt, playing 3k/9k against durrrr etc

      gus hansen is kind of unlikely :D



      we're all ignoring FL, it would seem. i know at least one FL-only player won 2m in 09, and maybe 7-game popularity will continue to increase and increase the potential of good FL players

      we're also ignoring MTT players
      Timoshenko, for example, won several million online last year, and there are several players capable of that, although i still think there will be cash player who will win more

      Isildur1 ftw.
      But in reality I guess it will still be PA

      Patrik Antonius will keep up an amazing run. That's what I think ^^.
