The betting exchange makes Haxton the favourite at 1.752 with Blom currently available at 2.27. There's plenty of liquidity in both markets.

A Matchbook spokesman said, “Any time you have two of the best players in the world battling it out in a structured format, there will be loads of interest in betting on the match. Given Isildur’s form it seems crazy for him to be the underdog in this match. But money talks, and if anyone feels differently they will surely be accommodated."
