2010 crowned a group of poker pros, some of them just emerging, some with their star already on the rise some time before. And who’s here to watch out for at poker tables in the year that has just started? Let’s start with ladies – Vanessa Selbst (cashed in at the WSOP) and Anette Obrestad (winner of No Limit Hold’em at the London stop of the EPT) are the most formidable women in the poker circles. To name just a few men, the mysterious Isildur1, Eric Baldwin and Phil Ivey are staying in the game to live up to their reputation. And newcomers? By now you will surely know the name of Jonathan Duhamel and Michael Mizrachi (from the successful family of the Mizrachi poker players) and you might not have heard yet of Jason Mercier (succeeded in NAPT Bounty Shootout) and Thomas Marchese (sixth in a $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em event at the WSOP).
