With Super High Rollers being all the rage and poker players putting up $10k, $25k and even $100k – on the regular – for tournaments, the massive price tag associated with the premiere WSOP fantasy league for poker’s elite cool kids has, maybe, lost a little of its shine. The fun of it on the other hand, has only grown in recent years. Now the date is set for the 2014 $25k Fantasy Draft to take place.
For the uninitiated, some of poker’s brightest stars nerd out, pony up $25k and bid on their fellow poker players in a results oriented fantasy game where the team that performs the best, takes all the cash.
In years past, along with host Daniel Negreanu, team captains have included Jason Mercier, Todd Brunson, Matt Glantz, Eugene Katchalov, Mike McDonald, Mori Eskandani, Barry Greenstein and last year’s champ Matthew Waxman.
The teams will be getting together in Las Vegas just a couple days before the WSOP kicks off later this month (yes, THIS MONTH!).
In the past QuadJacks had broadcast the Draft , no word yet on if there will be a live feed from inside the room but rumor has it that media, in some form of another, will be on hand.
