    Welcome to the inaugural SportsJournalists.com World Series of Poker Fantasy Pool for 2007.

    Since my love for poker is beyond measure, I thought I'd share my love with the rest of the class, by administering a pool for this year's 50K buy-in HORSE event and 10K buy-in main event. I know the points system below is clunky and hard to figure, but trust me, I stole it from Full Contact Poker's Fantasy Poker stuff and they run a nice pool over there, so ... Of course, we can streamline this as we see fit.

    ENTRIES BY 2PM CDT, JUNE 24. That's when cards go in the air for the 50K HORSE event!

    1) Select your "Final Table" of any 9 poker players -- and rank them 1 through 9. They can professional players, or your buddy who is going to play in the event. I don't care. Be specific on names, first and last; no nicknames.

    2) You will receive points for each of your players' finish in the two major events listed above: the 50K HORSE and 10K Main Event ONLY!

    3) You only receive points for each player that finishes in the final three tables or TOP 27 of each event.

    The scoring system is best explained by an example: You put Phil Hellmuth No. 2 on your list, and he takes 21st in the main event. You get 128 points from his place. That was achieved by taking his place (21st, worth 16 points) and multiplying it by his rank multiple (He's No. 2 on your list, so his finishes are multipled by 8 ).

    The same is done for each player, and the HIGHEST TOTAL WINS!!!

    TIE-BREAKER: 1) Have the winner of either or both event. 2) Number of combined cashes of your players.

    1st: 80 -- 9th: 40 -- 17th: 24 -- 25th: 8
    2nd: 75 -- 10th: 38 -- 18th: 22 -- 26th: 6
    3rd: 70 -- 11th: 36 -- 19th: 20 -- 27th: 4
    4th: 65 -- 12th: 34 -- 20th: 18
    5th: 60 -- 13th: 32 -- 21st: 16
    6th: 55 -- 14th: 30 -- 22nd: 14
    7th: 50 -- 15th: 28 -- 23rd: 12
    8th: 45 -- 16th: 26 -- 24th: 10

    Rank Multiple
    1: 9 -- 6: 4
    2: 8 -- 7: 3
    3: 7 -- 8: 2
    4: 6 -- 9: 1
    5: 5

    BONUS: You get a 10-point bonuses for every player you have make either of the two final tables!

    PRIZES: Top three will get various swag I picked up from the WSOP this year. The amount is yet to be determined. Included are two decks of the Bicycle Pro Poker Peek cards, and whatever else I feel like sending you. :)
