sorry but the brian hunter i'm thinking of is like 15-1 in constructed events this year and top 8'd worlds last year. were you thinking of some other brian hunter?

Here's my team

Brian Hunter- 40
Aaron Nelson - 25
Michael Richards - 20
Bobby Hilbun - 10

I wanted to go with Desai or Chu but both were to expensive. Hunter is an easier pick at 40 and I'm hoping I'll get a 2008 Frank Gore/Matt Forte with him. I saw Aaron Nelson play at the TX MPC. Kevin talked him up and he's done well since the TX MPC either winning or placing very high in almost all the tournaments since then. I would've gone with Kevin but Aaron is cheaper. Richards was one stupid play away from making Day 3 last year and he's only been getting better since. He's a top player here and he only gets better when he takes the time to interact with the Team Stephenville crew. Bobby took last year off basically due to his work. He got knocked out of the TX MPC by Aaron Nelson but then went on to win the consolation tourney. He ran Dantooine Regionals and made top 4 at Tx States. Although he has not done as much playing as 3 years ago his skillz are better. He's still a returning Day 3 player so at 10 pts thats an easy pick.

kevin shannon - 35
aaron nelson - 25
joe olson - 15
bobby hilbrun - 10 points
mikefrench - 15 points

basically, i have to auto pick myself. also kevin and aaron are among the best players i've ever played, and they're at the peak of their game.

i would pick jim li at this point, but i'm not sure if he's going.

so i went with bobby hilbrun based on jw's reasoning, and for my last 15 went with one of the many good endor players. since harpster is good but too many points, i had to flip a coin between mike french and kyle kreuger.

mike was heads, for obvious reasons (guy who cannot be named said he gives good.. nevermind). meto was tails, cause.. /shrug.

heads won. also, i may edit this post up to the deadline if jim li says he is going and has played a game of starwars in the last month. cause he's a beast. and probably won't be too drunk.

wow, bold call of ryan over mike or kyle. could pay off huge, ryan has great potential.

also, good call on phil. somehow i missed his name when scanning the 15 pointers. good thing, or i'd have had to find a 3 headed coin to flip between him and mike and kyle.

note how all the others have a space after the hyphen, like "Hunter - 40". i think you're actually worth -15 in his list. :P

whoever doesn't pick the auto team of Hunter, Hollingworth, and Westergard will not win the contest.

It's much more exciting to me when you get a group of people who are coming up to you.....really really excited about it. And then there are other people who walk out literally saying that was the worst movie I've ever seen. Having those two extremes to me is the mark of the type of movie that I want to make.

ah, i get it now. at first i looked over his picks and saw that it was 105 points but that was counting ryan french as a positive 15. steve harpster is devious indeed.

btw jk i worked it out with him and his team as it is now is legal.
