The introduction of the pocket-cam revolutionized the game of poker, making the tournament infinitely more entertaining to watch. Now, Fantazzle brings the next level of poker entertainment with the introduction of Fantasy Poker. @ Fantazzle.com, pick the guy who you think will last the longest in the WSOP tournament and win. From the 6,865 players who began the tournament, only 1864 remain. The survivors will return on Thursday for day 3 of the tournament, which will be the first day when the entire field will be under one roof at the same time.
