Not Just a Fantasy.
You’ve heard of fantasy baseball, football, even surfing, but fantasy poker is now much more than just dreaming about that winning hand. The ultimate poker dream team is now only a mouse click away with the launch of an innovative new online competition boasting a $100,000 prize purse.
Now every poker fan can have a stake in this year’s World Series of Poker by building his or her own squad of 10 players on www.thefantasypokergame.com. Similar to fantasy leagues involving those other sports, the Fantasy Poker Game challenges you to create a squad of players whose achievements during the World Series could send you on your way to a big cash prize.
A registration fee of $30 hands the player a notional $35 million to spend on recruiting a team, with players actually competing in the WSOP even able to pick themselves as part of the game’s innovative Wild Cards element.
Wild Cards is a first for fantasy sports games and allows the team manager to enter any player they want - themselves, a friend or even a player they’ve spotted raking in the cash online.
And entry into the game also secures a ticket in a prize draw, with the winner walking away with a WSOP Main Event Package worth $12,500.
The WSOP action is going on right now. So if you think you know poker, it’s time to prove it.
