ESPN/Bluff Launches 2006 Fantasy Poker League

Shannon_elizabeth2For many, a fantasy poker game would include some combo of Clonie, Carmel, Elizabeth, and Ng. 

But for those whose heads aren’t constantly in the gutter (so not us), "fantasy" means spending hours a week tooling away on your roto roster or debating who to plug in at the crucial RB/WR flex spot.

Luckily, ESPN/Bluff’s poker fantasy challenge doesn’t require that much T&E. 

Carmel_1Earlier today, the newly formed ESPN/Bluff partnership launched a newly revamped fantasy poker league. You just select seven players to fit under a salary cap, and hope those seven cash like crazy in 13 tournaments during a six-month timeframe starting in January.  The main prizes: four trips to either Australia or Austria (winner chooses) for the Howard Lederer/Annie Duke Fantasy Poker Camp.

Chops has registered and will keep you posted on how his "team" (which includes Jesus, Juanda, Judah, and Negreanu) is doing. 

If he’s winning. 

Because he likes to brag.

    i am absolutely entralled by this fantasy poker league and i can see it slowly beginning to decrease my workplace efficiency… actually if it gets any less i would just be asleep at my desk.
    anyway, my team consists of:
    Arieh, Doyle, Ivey, Barry Greenstein, Negreanu, Erik Seidel, and David Williams.
    chops, are you in a group or anything?
    see you boys tonight…

    I love http://www.shannonelizabeth.com. Keep up the good work. Every other post has a picture of her! I’ve been waiting for a lifetime to find a website that alternates pictures of fat men, and her. I thought I hit the jackpot when I found that website that had college football spreads and pictures of bongs, but this one takes the prize!! I don’t care that I’m going bald and talking to a computer at 1:00 am. I’ve finally found a home!!!

    Marcus, glad you found a home! We’ll do our best to keep making up angles in stories so we can post pics of Shannon Elizabeth and other girls that really don’t have anything to do with our stories. It’s a unique talent of ours.
