The new categories that punters can place bets on include:

  • Age of Winner
  • Female at the final table
  • Phil Ivey stage of elimination
  • Chris Ferguson stage of elimination
  • Daniel Negreanu stage of elimination
  • Erik Seidel stage of elimination

  • Carlos Mortensen stage of elimination
  • Dave "The Devilfish" Ulliott stage of elimination
  • Marcel Luske stage of elimination
  • Joe Hachem stage of elimination
  • Donnacha O'Dea stage of elimination

Punters can also wager on how well PaddyPowerPoker.com qualifiers do and how Irish players do in the main event as well.

PaddyPower.com's odds on players making the final table of nine are: Daniel Negreanu, 66-to-1; Johnny Chan, 80-to-1; Ulliott and Barney Boatman both at 100-to-1; Black, 125-to-1; Ram "Crazyhorse" Vaswami, Donnacha O'Dea, and Doyle Brunson all 150-to-1; and David Sklansky, 250-to-1.
