Who are your favorites? Who will take over the title Joël van Noort still owns? Will it be Edouard? Or will Joël maintain his title, and how about the rest of the events? Will the multi-bld record be broken again? Can anybody else stop the Germans? :D

Does favorite mean you like him the most, want him to win, or expect him to win?

If Tyson expects Lars Petrus to win everything I think I finally found something that I dare to bet him :) (I'll even give 1/1000 odds, but a minimum bet of 10 Euro is required)

And why doesn't anyone think Per/Mirek/Zbigniew will win FMC? They are the real experts in my book. I still can't make skeletons, control edge-orientation and have troubles with corners. The only reason I get good/short solutions is because I have good starts and can experiment (get lucky) during the rest of the hour. I like being called a favorite, but don't think I deserve it (yet)
