iSeriesLIVE starts today

Thursday, 5 April 2012

Some of the biggest names in poker are in Dublin today for the first iSeriesLIVE event, a $10,000 buy-in, 10-man, winner takes all, sit and go. More intriguingly for railbirds the contest will be streamed live online with in-play betting from on a wide variety of markets.

Daniel Negreanu is the favourite at 11/2 followed by Phil Hellmuth at 13/2, Carlos Mortensen and Eoghan O'Dea at 7/1 and Tobias Renkemeier at 15/2 with Marvin Rettenmaier, Dave Ulliott, Faraz Jaka and James Dempsey all on offer at 8/1. Mario Ho rounds out the field at 10/1.

“For poker to continue to grow, the game needs to become more immediate to our fans,” said 11-time bracelet winner and Main Event champion Phil Hellmuth. “By allowing fans to view a poker event as it actually happens, with hole cards exposed, and bet on the action just as they would on football or horse racing, iSeriesLIVE can help take our game to the next level. Now the world will know why I’ve said ‘If it wasn’t for luck, I’d win them all’”

In addition to the cash to won at the table, participants will also earn a share of money that is bet on them.

The action gets under way at 6pm. If you fancy a flutter on one of over 30 in play markets visit
