Paul and Ricky are closely enough matched in skill that any competition between them can come down to who gets the breaks and who doesn’t. That said Paul is a ferocious competitor and I’m fairly certain he’s had his blood vessels surgically filled with ice he’s so cool under pressure.

Paige has been so much better than the FPO field recently it’s not even fair, but historically that hasn’t always been the case.

I wouldn’t put money against either one.

PP wins her Worlds every two years, and she's due this year. And no one but Cat is even close to her. Unless she does something really dumb, it should be a coronation.

Paul will face a (much) more competitive field, but he's playing very well with his new quiver of Discraft arrows. Eagle has been playing very well, also, but IMHO his (Eagle's) problem is stamina over the long haul. So I'll go with McBeth (as well as PP) to make it 5x.

Last year was def a fluke with Barsby and Paige B winning worlds

Not a knock on them, but I dont see them repeating

Paul always has strong finishes. Likes to climb if he starts slow. Think that separates him from most. So, I wouldn’t bet against him. But I don’t really gamble. So... I just hope for a good/entertaining battle.

And although PP is dominant as of late, I think part of it is Cat falling behind. I think it’s a no brainer it’ll be PP or Cat, but I wouldn’t count Cat out yet. She could catch fire at any point again.

McBeth is the clear favorite, but I wouldn't favor him against the field. Pierce, however, I would.

Sorry but there is no such thing as a fluke winning a 5 round tournament at that level.

That being said, I still think worlds needs to be 6 rounds, semi+final.

I think older Paige just didn't have the heart to beat younger Paige last year. Maybe she does this year.

The fluke is that Paul and Ricky didnt play up to their potential for those 5 rounds

Not saying Barsby didnt play well and doesnt deserve it.
