Dmitry (although I hate to see Ivo lose so early
My long shot hope for a good tournament would be Brendan Evans. He wasn't so lucky with drawing Jan-Michael but it should be a good experience for him, if nothing else. He's been mixing in a few pro tournaments while still finishing his last year in Juniors. More of a hype has been made out of Brian Baker but I think Brendan could make some noise at some point.
