After eight gruelling days of poker in Las Vegas the 2011 WSOP November 9 is now set, and the bookmakers have updated their WSOP November 9 Odds markets accordingly, making the two big stacks; Martin Staszko of the Czech Republic and Ireland’s Eoghan ‘Tiltypaddy’ O’Dea joint-favourites at odds of 9/2 (5.5).
WSOP NOVEMBER 9 ODDS:
With bookmakers traditionally very cagey in markets such as these, one might have expected the market to be trading a lot higher, perhaps even as high as 130%, so the 114% is intriguing and suggests there may be some value to be had. Obviously with their stack sizes it is hard to look past Staszko and O’Dea but, as we all know, the poker gods can be fickle and it could be a nice little earner to look for the value elsewhere in this market.
With less than 30 Big Blinds at the November 9 renewal you would think Sam Holden and Anton Makievski will have too much to do. Badih Bounahra, the only amateur player at the table, could find himself outclassed in this company and on the biggest stage in the world. Phil Collins, who has had a tremendous Main Event, looks to be a good bet at 11/2, as does Ben Lamb – an early mover on Betfair – who, barring a miracle performance from Phil Hellmuth in the World Series of Poker Europe in October, is the 2011 WSOP Player of Year with $2,000,000 in winnings this summer. With 24 million chips, Matt Gianetti, who escaped the final table bubble by picking up pocket Jacks twice, could also be worth a look at the 15/2 BoyleSports are offering.
