The Online Poker and Bookmaker Recently Released Odds


Paddy Power, Ireland's largest online bookmaker, has laid odds for some of the more well-known players who will try to win the World Series of Poker's main event this summer. They are now taking bets.

Phil Ivey is the favorite at 50 to 1 to make the final table of nine players. Daniel Negreanu is right behind him at 66 to 1; Johnny Chan is 80 to 1; Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott and Barney Boatman are both 100 to 1; Andy Black is 125 to 1; Ram "Crazyhorse" Vaswami, Donnacha O'Dea and Doyle Brunson are all 150 to 1; and David Sklansky is 250 to 1.

Paddy Power also gave odds on some celebrities who will probably play in the event. Again, the odds are that the players make the final table of nine: Ben Affleck is given 200 to 1; Matt Damon, Teddy Sheringham and Toby Maguire all were given 400 to 1.
