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 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller of the series began on Wednesday, October 27, and attracted 170 entrants. The field was reduced to just 107 by the conclusion of play, but registration remains open through the first two levels on Day 2 (approximately 4:15 p.m. PT).
Eric Kurtzman, Joseph Cheong, and Yuval Bronshtein sit on top of the chip counts but aren’t perceived to be Omaha experts. Our top recommendations are a few spots lower as Chance Kornuth and Dylan Weisman sit fifth and seventh overall and are regarded as two of the best Pot-Limit Omaha players in the world. Unfortunately, they’ll likely be heavily owned, so finding some value elsewhere includes Dash Dudley who sits 17th in chips and won the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship in 2019.
Some other Omaha experts a little lower on the leaderboard include Adam Hendrix, Bryce Yockey, Joni Jouhkimainen, and Poker Masters PLO Series winner Eelis Pärssinen. While one player that will be on everyone’s radar is Tommy Le who bagged a chip stack that sits 46th overall and is fresh off a second-place finish in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and a win in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship.
If you’re looking for some players to add to your line-up that will have a low ownership percentage, then you may want to look at a few of the unknowns. Martin Dam sits sixth in chips, Michael Batell sits eighth overall, while Simon Lofberg rounds out the top ten.
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 $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller freeroll where there will be $1,000 up for grabs. Following the Pot-Limit Omaha High roller, there will be the biggest SuperDraft freeroll on offer with $2,500 and a WSOP Main Event Seat available to win in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship that begins on Sunday, October 31.
