Brandon Cantu

Gavin, Daniel, Lindgren, and Nordberg's $5k Fantasy Football League

In Part I of our latest webisode of The Toke, we followed the $5k buy-in Rounders Magazine FFL draft with Gavin Smith, Daniel Negreanu, Erick Lindgren, Brandon Cantu, and Peter "Nordberg" Feldman, or as Edog calls him, "Feldberg."

The auction draft was mostly just shit talking, with Gavin summing it up pretty well: "These guys have been spending money like a bunch of fucking retards."

Part II--the after-party in Gavin's Palms Kingpin fantasy suite--coming soon. That one will be the Dark Knight to this video's Batman Begins.

2008 WSOP Main Event: Dennis Phillips, Craig Marquis Are Chip Leaders With 27 Left

Brandon Cantu has his sights set on the Main Event title, or maybe just being this year's Lee Watkinson-Markholt.

Soooo...let's start the search for this year's Jerry Yang and Lee Watkinson-Markholt now.

With the elimination of Mike "The Mouth" Matusow in 30th place (brutal, on a flop of A-A-5, both he and Paul Snead checked, the turn was a 9, Snead moved all-in, Matusow called...The Mouth holding A-J, Snead A-9...ouch), all of the major headliner names are gone.

Even Cristian Dragomir The Fragrance is out.

With 27 remaining, the two chip leaders are Dennis Phillips (11,910,000) and Craig Marquis, who may or may not be related to Vanilla Ice (11,460,000). Phillips certainly has some Jerry Yang appeal (i.e. no appeal), but history has shown us that the chip leader with 27 left won't be the chip leader at the end unless your name is Jamie Gold. An interesting story thread could've been all the young Internet pros going deep, like Marquis, but lots of those guys (David Benefield, Gbecks) have been knocked out too, so oh well.

Phillips and Marquis are followed by the still running hot/looking hot FOWCP Tiffany Michelle with 9,755,000.

Our pick to win it, David "Chino" Rheem, continues his steady climb with 8,280,000. Aside from us picking him since the beginning, Rheem will be interesting as he should make "good TVTM" since he makes Kenny Tran look like the offspring of Humble Pie and Modest Mouse.

And the likely pick to be this year's Lee Watkinson-Markholt, Brandon Cantu, 4,740,000.

Finally, the search for this year's Brad Kondracki starts and ends with Chris Klodnicki.

Brandon Cantu Is Chip Leader at Dinner Break

Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (foreground, wearing trademark cap and glasses) is running well in the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

Quick dinner break poker pro Brandon Cantu held the chip lead as the only player stacked over 10M (10.7 to be exact).

Our pick to win it, David "Chino" Rheem, is fifth overall with 6.8M. The Last Woman StandingTM, Tiffany Michelle is sixth overall with just over 6.7M. And Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is stacked over 3.5M.

Only 35 remain and they're play down to 27.
