Some of my pre shuffle predictions

Online Poker will be addressed on some level in the US but legislators will make things worse, not better (prob left alone for ~5yrs though while they sort out other stuff)

Ivey will overtake Hellmuth in bracelets by the end of the decade, 13-12

Daniel Negreanu will continue to get massacred on HSP, will lose $1mil in a hand drawing ridiculously thin/dead

A PTipper will win a bracelet (probably Seb)

Several second-tier online poker sites will go broke or merge (Ongame, Ipoker, Cake, Cereus level sites)

Stars will still be #1 and Tilt will still be #2 in online poker on 1 Jan 2020

Playerbase will be mostly unchanged

I know,I googled it and posted it right before I went to bed, I saw that it was wring but just went to sleep.

I don't think it'll get worse. Probably not better sure, but not worse. Even at the time of UIGEA, there wasn't enough political will to pass it on its own merit and only exist because of some serious individual manvouring to attach it as a rider. There's just not enough political will on either side for much to happen on this subject.

if you want to set the line i'll bet it. what's the most he'll lose in one hand?

(this is real easy if you aren't setting the line, just take the over :D )

This decade? Depends how deep the buyins get. What line would you set? 1m seems pretty high but that might just be a 2BI pot in a few years time, they had a 500k buyin game already. They'd probably just run it 6 times or whatever though.

Just for the next series of HSP, unless the results have leaked.

You can quote a line in starting BB rather than $s if you prefer.
