The top 20 vote getters for the 2010 WSOP TOC have been released. I shared with you my picks a few days ago, where I applied the intricate formula of choosing people I liked. It surprised me that Chris Moneymaker didn't make the cut, as he would be a sentimental choice for many poker players, but perhaps his exposure has been fairly limited since his 2003 WSOP Main Event victory. Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu were unsurprisingly the top 2 choices.

1. Phil Ivey - 16,267 votes
2. Daniel Negreanu - 16,239

Having started this Supernova challenge as a lowly SilverStar, I found myself needing around 300 VPPs to hit GoldStar for June. With the wedding on Saturday, a visit to the in-laws on a Sunday, and a live WSOP satellite tournament on Monday afternoon (which I will talk about in my next video blog) I'd not left myself much time to get them. As a quick-fix, and with a taste for trying to qualify for the WSOP Main Event, I decided to play a few Steps tournaments to make upthe VPPs on Monday 31st May.
