Who EventHubs readers think will place top 8 in Street Fighter 5 at EVO 2017, along with the overall winner

Updated: We've closed out both of the polls and have the results for the voting setups available below.

We're very close to the start of one of the biggest tournaments of the year for fighting games. There's always a lot on the line at EVO.

The number of participants this year for Street Fighter 5 is 2,622. While this is close to half of last years number, that's still a lot of players involved.

Despite the high volume of competitors, I think it's safe to say that there are plenty of players that have pretty good odds this year. These players are obviously used to these high pressure situations.

We've created two polls that will let everybody express their predictions. We obviously didn't fill up the polls with all 2,622 players, but it these are probably the players that are most likely to make it.

The first poll asks which players do you think will make it to the top 8 portion of the tournament. You'll be able to vote up to eight times here.

After that, you can take a guess at who will come in 1st place. You only have one vote here so use it wisely.

There is, of course, a "somebody else" option in case none of the players on the list click with your expectations. Be sure to let us know your choices in the comments section so that you can secure those bragging rights if you managed the correct predictions.
