Phil Ivey Listed at 4/1 To Win Despite Having Less Than 10 Million in ChipsPublished on 2009-10-19 02:30:00
Phil Ivey, despite the fact that he has of the shorter stacks heading into the WSOP final table in November, is currently listed at 4/1 to win the main event at Bodog.com.
There are only two players who are currently listed as bigger favorites at Bodog - Darvin Moon (17/10) and Eric Buchman (3/1).
Phil Ivey, Steven Begleiter and Jeff Shulman are all currently listed at 4/1.
Let's put this into some perspective.
Steven Begleiter has nearly 30 million chips, while Phil Ivey has a little short of 10 million, yet Bodog has them both listed at 4/1 to win.
Jeff Shulman and Phil Ivey are both listed at 4/1 to win, despite the fact that Shulman has roughly double the chips of Phil Ivey.
Eric Buchman is only a slight favorite over Phil Ivey, despite the fact that Buchman has nearly 35 million chips.
Joe Cada will enter the final table with nearly 4 million chips more than Phil Ivey, yet Cada is currently listed at 10/1 to win.
Antoine Saout and Phil Ivey will enter the final table with nearly identical stacks - Bodog currently has Saout listed as 12/1 to win.
I know that many people have been betting on Ivey to win - but 4/1? I know that he's the best poker player in the world, but still..
