Phil Hellmuth is famous for his rants against 'northern European idiots' and now James Bord has fired back at players from across the pond.

The 2010 WSOPE Main Event winner has said that, “I don't think an American can win the bracelet, Europeans are now far superior. We used to look up to the U.S players back in the day, but those days are now long gone. I'm prepared to put my money where my mouth is and refund any losing bets up $500 if an American wins”.'s WSOPE market is now open for business with punters able to bet on whether a player will cash. Daniel Negreanu heads the field at 5/1 with Phil Hellmuth, Tom Dwan, Gus Hansen and Sam Trickett at 9/2. Bord himself is available at 11/2 to make the money.
