WSOP Final Table

The final table for the WSOP Main event is currently underway. As always, you should check out Pauly’s blog for live updates.

Looks like I was a bit off in my predictions. Stars players made up three of the final nine, and only one FullTilt pro made it. Allen Cunningham is the only big name left, and I’ve been rooting for him for the past few days. Why is that you ask? Because he’s on my fantasy poker team of coarse.

It’s amazing what fantasy sports will do for your interest in that sport. Five years ago the only football I watched was Bears games, and I couldn’t tell you the first thing about players on any other team. After a few years of fantasy football, and much to my wife’s chagrin I now enjoy watching just about any pro game, and I know who just about every skill position player is. And trust me; nothing impresses the ladies like knowing the average yards per game of the third string WR for some football team halfway across the country.

It’s almost the same for the WSOP this year. I participated in the goofy fantasy league at FullTilt and even though there wasn’t much riding on it I would still check each night to get chip counts and see how my picks were doing. Last year, without some competition that involved me, I would check the results as they came in, but this year I definitely followed the standings more closely. So yeah, you want me to be interested in some sporting event? Set up a fantasy league and give me something to play for, and I’m in.
