world series of poker - 2008 - participants of the final table - group shot - wsopIf you've got an inkling as to who you think is going to take down the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event in November, here's your chance to make some money from it.

Less than a day after the final table was finalized, Paddy Power has released betting odds for the final table.

Not surprisingly, Dennis Phillips (the chip leader heading into the final table) is listed with the best odds: 4/1 to win. Ivan Demidov, approximately 2 million chips behind Phillips, is also listed at 4/1.

Here is the full list:

Dennis Phillips - 4/1
Ivan Demidov - 4/1
Scott Montgomery - 9/2
Peter Eastgate - 9/2
Ylon Schwartz - 8/1
Darus Suharto - 17/2
David "Chino" Rheem - 10/1
Craig Marquis - 10/1
Kelly Kim - 50/1

Kelly Kim enters the final table with a tiny stack of just 2.62 million in chips. When play resumes, there will be 21 minutes 50 seconds left in the 120,000/240,000 w/ 30,000 antes blind level. Kim would need to get extremely lucky in order to play himself back into contention in November. If you think that he can do it though, Paddy Power is offering 50/1 odds.

David "Chino" Rheem is a solid player with over $700k in lifetime cashes (not including this year's main event). He took fifth in the $5k Mixed Hold'em event at the WSOP earlier this summer, and also took second place in a $1k w/ rebuys WSOP event in 2006. Rheem has a workable stack of just over 10 million in chips. At 10/1, Rheem is probably the guy that I would be putting money on.
