The 2017 World Series of Poker is in full swing with event numbers creeping towards the 20s, players making multiple final tables and sweating bracelet bets. Also heating up is the $25K Fantasy league with Team Negreanu holding a strong lead over the field.
Team Negreanu’s huge lead is due to his team finishing in third place in the $10,000 Tag Team event. His GTO strategy netted each member of his team final table points, so Eric Wasserson, Mark Gregorich and David Benyamin pulled double duty for Negreanu.

Negreanu followed up the Tag Team event with a runner-up finish in the $10,000 Omaha HiLo Championship – good for 91 fantasy points.

Team Leah comes in at second place mostly due to Ismael Bojang’s deep run in the Colossus and James Obst’s runner-up finish in the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball event.

On paper Team Gorodinsky should be crushing with Phil Hellmuth, Scott Seiver, Daniel Weinman and Gordo himself on the team. But they’ve collectively earned 32 points while Bryn Kenney, Scott Clements, Shaun Deeb and David Chiu have put up goose eggs so far.
