If you don’t have a percentage of your favorite November Niner, there’s always another way to sweat the World Series of Poker Main Event – place a wager. If you are located in the part of the world where this is allowed, Carbon Sports will be happy to take your action.
Last week, the initial odds for the November Nine came out and there are not too many surprises. Chipleader Jorryt Van Hoof leads the way with his +250 line (meaning that if you bet $100 on the Hoofster to win and he does, you collect $250) and, for the most part the odds decrease right along with the stack sizes. Here’s a full list of the player and the line being given them:
Jorryt van Hoof – +250
Felix Stephensen – +350
Mark Newhouse – +400
Andoni Larrabe – +700
Dan Sindelar – +700
William Pappaconstantinou – +1000
William Tonking – +1200
Martin Jacobson – +750
Bruno Politano – +1500
As you can see, the major exception is for Martin Jacobson, his 8th place stack is commanding, essentially, 4th place odds.
