World’s first and only fantasy poker league unveils sleek new look
Friday 26th November 2004
FantasyPokerChallenge.com, home of the world’s first and only fantasy poker league, has unveiled its stunning new look this week; with a sophisticated poker-felt green and sparkling gold replacing the sky blue of the old site.
For those of you not yet in the know, the challenge was launched last summer by Bluff Magazine and is proving massively popular. It’s free to play and works along the same lines as any regular fantasy sports league. Simply choose four of your favourite poker players, who will then earn you points depending on the amount of prize money they win at a designated tournament. The player whose fantasy team has accumulated the highest number of points at the end of the tourney is the winner. After the first day of the tournament you can buy and sell players, like the stock exchange, which gives the game the same mixture of strategy and luck as the great game of poker itself.
In order to celebrate this glorious transformation, we are offering winners the ultimate poker players dream come true: The top 1000-point earners between Dec. 17th (Five Diamond World Poker Classic II) and April 24th (WPT Championship at Bellagio) will compete in an invitation only online freeroll tournament with the winner earning a seat at the 2005 WSOP.
