My Full Tilt Fantasy Poker Wrapup

The results of the main event of the World Series of Poker are in and the fantasy poker season at Full Tilt has been settled. By virtue having picked Phil Ivey and Eugene Katchalov, I came in 739 in this last event, earning $4.9M of the fantasy dollars. To point out the “Ivey Effect” of basically having the baseline of this event be over $4M: my brother had Ivey as an A and one other guy that cashed low so he had $4.2M . He came in over 10,000th place. More than 9,000 places were determined by the 700K in the middle.

By virtue of my 39th place overall, I came in 4th in the Poker Road Forum league and have already been paid a cool $15 American into my Poker Stars account. I’m pretty sure that the Poker Road Forum league kicked the absolute ass of every other one. PR had 13 people in the top 100 of the overall season.

This was an unbelievable amount of fun, and I picked up a little cash between the PR payout and cashing in the freerolls associated with the events. I can’t wait until next year.
