WSOP fantasy challenge

Postby Pogotheostrich » Mon Jun 20, 2005 11:14 am

This is something I am doing with some of my buddies this year and I thought it would work well at the Cafe too. Everyone who wants to participate picks 10 poker players. Whoever has the highest prize money total in the $10,000 no limit tourney from their 10 players wins. It is scheduled to start Thursday July 7th, so selections would have to be in before then.

Just for bragging rights. I can keep everyones picks in a spreadsheet. Chances are most picks won't be in the money anyway so it shouldn't be that hard to keep track.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in. Maybe we could get a poker icon or something? :-b ;-)

If nothing else I'm sure one of the graphics guys would be nice enough to make a custom sig.

I'm in. I have 3 friends participating so I'll be nice and pick the one who finished 38th last year. He always does well, he finished 18th in one of the earlier events. Just say when and I'll be ready with my picks.

You didn't win a seat either, huh? :-/

I got close, but close doesn't do it. :-C

I'll be happy to make picks for this too. :-) ;-D

5th out of 600+. Winner got the $10,000 buy in, 9 days hotel, airfare, and $1,000 in spending money. Down to the final 5 and got knocked out when my pocket queens got taken out by pocket 10's that hit a set on the flop. :,-(

There's always next year though. }:-)

I'd like to join...Erin Ness all the way... :-L

Just wondering, is there going to be any kind of "units" system where like the best poker players cost more, and you buy a team? Or can we just pick any 10?

And when we do get this going, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could hook me up with a PM, I spend more time on the Football side so I might forget about this thread, but I'd get the PM over there.

Thanks man, sounds fun. ;-D
