I like the guy as a person, but when it comes to playing against the elite, hes definetly an underdog.

He can do it, he is one of the most entertaining players around and I am sure he will be doing lots of crazy things to stay awake. Will be a good test for him and will make interesting viewing if he is as normal as he usually is......bordering on crazy genuis that is!
