Fantasy poker continues at the 2021 World Series of Poker with contests for 18 WSOP gold bracelet events being run on SuperDraft.
The PokerGO News team includes numerous poker diehards and fantasy poker experts, and heading into each SuperDraft contest, our team will be giving fantasy poker advice, best picks, and additional insight to help you win one of the SuperDraft freerolls that are available throughout the 2021 WSOP.
The first big buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha event of the 2021 WSOP begins on Saturday, October 23, at 3 p.m. PT with Event #45: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship.
There is a $1,000 freeroll contest on SuperDraft with $100 awaiting the user that can draft the best line-up. The early favorite to be the top pick is defending champion Dash Dudley who pocketed $1,086,967 at the 2019 WSOP when he topped the 518-entrant field to win his first WSOP bracelet. Dudley is here at the WSOP and is a great pick when you consider he won a second WSOP bracelet in Pot-Limit Omaha at the 2019 WSOP Europe.
One of the best picks is Josh Arieh who won the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha yesterday and has expressed that he is definitely playing in this event. Is there a better pick of a player that is in Pot-Limit Omaha form?
Jeremy Ausmus finished fourth behind Dudley in 2019, and with a WSOP bracelet to his name in this series already. Ausmus is another great pick for your team and will likely be low on the ownership percentage. However, another player that will be a great pick but will most likely have a high ownership percentage is Daniel Negreanu who has ten cashes this WSOP. Negreanu has already been eliminated from yesterday’s $3,000 Limit Hold’em, and is expected to be in the Pot-Limit Omaha field early in an attempt to build up a stack.
Some other players that are out of the $3,000 Limit Hold’em and will most likely take a seat in the Pot-Limit Omaha include Dan Zack, Shaun Deeb, and Phil Hellmuth.
Pot-Limit Omaha veteran Anthony Zinno is 11th in chips in the $3,000 Limit Hold’em, so he’s one to fade unless he is eliminated and could then become a sneaky Day 2 switch. There are five players still remaining in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, and several of them are worth fading including Bryce Yockey, Brandon Shack-Harris, and Marco Johnson. David “ODB” Baker is at the $1,500 Razz final table, and is also worth fading at this stage.
Lineups are made up of five players that include a “Champion” player that scores an additional 50% of their multiplier and four others. With SuperDraft, every player is assigned a multiplier, and as new players enter the WSOP gold bracelet event in real-time, they will be added to the draftable player pool. Points in the contest are awarded to players that finish in the top 20, along with bonuses for finishing in-the-money, reaching the final table, reaching the top five, reaching the top three, and winning it all.
After you’ve pocketed the lion’s share of the Pot-Limit Omaha Championship freeroll, it’s time to turn your attention to the Event #49: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw Championship freeroll where there will be $500 up for grabs. Following the No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw Championship, there will be a $1,000 freeroll for the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller that will begin on Wednesday, October 27.
