Default Top ten Poker Runs

If you could attend any 10 -12 Poker Runs across the US which would they be and why. We are trying to put together a schedule for AT for some great runs and some great exposure.

Did Savannah this year and it was a lot of fun. Plus the races are the same weekend so a manufacturer could get TONS of exposure from the crowds.
