FIRST TWITTER RANT

Most of the PokerNews.com experts pointed to Allen Kessler.

Chad Holloway: "Allen Kessler has been on a Twitter-ranting roll in 2018, and I don’t see that changing for 2018. The “Complainsaw” will be in form this summer."

Other names that were thrown out there: Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk, both of whom are Twitter celebrities in the poker space.

NUMBER OF WOMEN WHO WILL WIN WSOP BRACELETS IN 2018

One to three win no more than four seems to be the concensus.

Frank Op de Woerd: "One? You want a name too? Ok, Heidi May it is. She won the Ladies event last year but knowing her just a tiny bit, I know she's a beat at the table. Ow, and Ema Zajmovic is great too. And Kristen Bicknell as well. Liv won one last year, so she'll be hungry for another. Maria Lampropulos is amazing, Loni Harwood, Esther Taylor-Brady, man I could go on for a while. Ok, I'll go with two bracelets this year."

BIG DROP WINNER, $50,000 POKER PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP WINNERS 

Stephen Chidwick received the most love from prognosticators.

Sarah Herring: "The Poker Players Championship is a tough one. There are so many elements that go into this tournament. I am going to go with Stephen Chidwick. He has been playing fantastic and seems to be in the zone. He is one of the young guns that specializes in mixed games. His fiancé Marine brings him food every day to keep him motivated during the summer, and I think he will be feeling confident after his recent success at the US Poker Open and the partypoker Millions Grand Final."
