The $25,000 World Series of Poker fantasy draft — with Daniel Negreanu and Jason Somerville — will be streamed live on Twitch.
The $25K fantasy game has seemingly gotten bigger every year. Negreanu put together the first $25,000 buy-in draft back in 2011.
Five years later, the draft is getting a lot of attention — including a spot on Somerville’s Twitch stream, at 7 p.m. Pacific, 10 p.m. Eastern. Both Negreanu and Somerville are PokerStars pros, so the linkage makes sense.
The draft this year is being held in a suite at the Aria in Las Vegas. The WSOP starts on Wednesday at the Rio.
Much like other fantasy sports, entrants will pick a lineup of poker players and will score points based on their performance at this year’s WSOP. The entry with the most points scored by their roster of poker players over the course of the tournament series will win. You can see more about the rules here.
