This year's World Series is only weeks away and if you can't be there but still want some action then there are a host of markets to bet on.
The biggest betting event at the WSOP is of course the Main Event and unsurprisingly it's Phil Ivey who heads the market. The seven time bracelet has been installed the 80/1 favourite with Bet24 to take the biggest prize in poker this year. Allen Cunningham and surprisingly Gus Hansen are rated at 100/1 with Phil Hellmuth, Peter Eastgate, Dario Minieri, Daniel Negreanu and Patrik Antonius and Barry Greenstein at 125/1. Scotty Nguyen is on offer at 150/1 alongside Chris Ferguson, Huck Seed, Erik Seidel and Tom Dwan.Surinder Sunar and Julian Gardner lead the British challenge at 175/1 with Dave Colclough, Julian Thew, Ram Vaswani and Dave Ulliott at 200/1. Triple Crown winner Roland de Wolfe is at 225/1 alongside Hit squadee Praz Bansi and Neil Channing with Victoria Coren at 275/1.An American winner of the main event is heavily favoured too at 1/2 with a non-US winner rated a 7/5 possibility with Sportingbet.com. The Main Event has been something of a crapshoot in recent years so punters may find more value in other events.Sportingbet.com is offering odds of 1/6 that there will be a multiple bracelet winner this year. It's 2/1 against that anyone can repeat James Akenhead's impressive feat and reach the final table of both the WSOP in Las Vegas and the WSOPE in London later this year.Phil Ivey is 13/10 to win at least one bracelet this year with Phil Hellmuth 13/5, Daniel Negreanu at 31/20 and Doyle Brunson at 15/4.
