The World Series of Poker marks the return of the 2014 mammoth fund-raising tournament that is the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop. The richest businessmen in the world collide with the best the poker world has to offer in what is likely to be a near-$20 million dollar first place prize, the richest in poker history.
Even though we don’t even know who will be playing in the high-stakes tournament for sure—it’s over six months away—you can still place your bets on who you think will walk away the winner. Bet Victor has compiled and released a list of possibilities and the first odds of who will win the Big One. While Antonio Esfandiari (16/1) is the defending champion (should he decide to play) poker pro and 2012 runner-up Sam Trickett (14/1) is the odds on favourite (get it? he’s a Brit.).
They cast a pretty wide net when guessing who would take a seat including 2013 WSOP Main Event Champ Ryan Riess (28/1), the godfather Doyle Brunson (40/1) and many of those who ponied up 7 figures the first time around.
Of course, because it’s degen gambling, you can bet on a number of One Drop props like Final Table card colors, numbers and suits in given situations. Wanna check out the action? All of the initial odds are posted over at Bet Victor.
