PKR’s Fantasy Poker league
Before the World Series of Poker in Vegas this summer PKR started a League where you put together your own Fantasy team. The prices are Ipad3 and other nice stuff.
This league will increase my personal interest in this year’s WSOP even more. I’ve put together a team with several Scandinavian players and it’ll be great fun to follow their progress.
Legend: Phil Hellmuth Jr (captain)
With 11 bracelets he feels like the natural captain of the best team! At last year’s WSOP, he showed us he still is a world class player with six cashes and three second place finishes.
Legend: Sam Farha
He is a cool cat who plays every hand and is especially good in PLO. He came second in the 2003 Main Event won by Moneymaker.
Female: Annette Obrestad
The youngest girl ever to win a bracelet when she was only 18 years old. Ultra aggressive player and a nightmare to have on your left.
Other: Chris Björin
Swedish old school legend, nowadays living in England, who has 61 cashes and two bracelets. He cashes every year at the WSOP.
Other: Michael Tureniec
One of the many aggressive Swedish players on the tour and the Swede I believe has the best chance to win big. He is always a threat.
Other: Alexander Kravchenko
Watch out for the Russians. They always have a player on the FT and this guy is a former WSOP bracelet winner with 16 WSOP cashes.
Other: Martin Staszko
Second in last year’s Main Event for a nice $5.5 million. On a heater.
Team PKR Pro: Sofia Lovgren
Cashed in Irish open, WSOP Europe and Spring Poker Week Main Event. Going to Vegas for the second time and will play eight events including the Main. Could be the first Swedish girl ever to win a bracelet. Has had a good run online lately and feels it’s time to bring it live!
I’m leaving for Vegas on 22 June and will stay for nearly a month. Make your own Fantasy team! And follow me on twitter… PKR_Sofia
