2014 WSOP Bracelet

Offshore Sportsbooks Set Odds for WSOP November Nine

You did not make it to the final table of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event. I know, it’s tough. “All your hopes… dreams down the [you know what] drain,” as Teddy KGB would say. But it’s not too late to make money on the WSOP! Oh, no. You can still place your bets – you will just have to let your hopes ride with someone.else.

Several major online sportsbooks recently posted the lines for the WSOP Main Event final table, allowing bettors to choose a horse and have a sweat. Looking at two sportsbooks, Ladbrokes and Carbon Sports, the chip leader going into the final table, Jorryt van Hoof, is the favorite sitting at 5/2 odds on both sites. After that, the rundown is very similar on both sides, though they are not exact copies. Let’s take a look:

Ladbrokes 2014 WSOP Main Event Final Table Odds

Jorryt van Hoof – 5:2
Felix Stephenson – 7:2
Mark Newhouse – 5:1
Andoni Larrabe – 7:1
Dan Sindelar – 7:1
Martin Jacobson – 9:1
Billy Pappaconstantinou – 10:1
William Tonking – 12:1
Bruno Politano – 16:1

Carbon Sports 2014 WSOP Main Event Final Table Odds

Jorryt van Hoof – 5:2
Felix Stephenson – 7:2
Mark Newhouse – 4:1
Dan Sindelar – 11:2
Andoni Larrabe – 7:1
Martin Jacobson – 15:2
Billy Pappaconstantinou – 10:1
William Tonking – 12:1
Bruno Politano – 15:1

The top three at both Ladbrokes and Carbon are the same, though Carbon rates Mark Newhouse higher, perhaps because of his run to the final table last year. The next two, Andoni Larrabe and Dan Sindelar, have the same odds on Ladbrokes, but Carbon Sports gives Sindelar the edge, even though he has fewer chips than Larrabe. The bottom four are the same at both sites, with Bruno Politano, the shortest stack at the final table, coming in as a slightly longer shot at Ladbrokes and Martin Jacobson getting more credit at Carbon.

Perhaps the most interesting thing on both sites is that Martin Jacobson, the second shortest stack at the final table, is given the sixth best odds of the November Nine; he is almost tied with Larrabe on Carbon for fifth. It seems that despite the chip stack, both sportsbooks know that Jacobson is a very skilled player – he had won nearly $5 million in live tournaments before the Main Event and is currently ranked 16th on the Global Poker Index. He was the chip leader after Day 1 (one of three players since the November Nine was instituted to lead after Day 1 and make the final table) and Day 6 and was never worse than 30th to end a day. Had he not doubled up William Tonking on the November Nine bubble, he’d been in much better shape than he is.

2014 WSOP Main Event Final Table Chip Counts

Jorryt van Hoof – 38,375,000
Felix Stephenson – 32,775,000
Mark Newhouse – 26,000,000
Andoni Larrabe – 22,500,000
Dan Sindelar – 21,200,000
Billy Pappaconstantinou – 17,500,000
William Tonking – 15,050,000
Martin Jacobson – 14,900,000
Bruno Politano – 12,125,000

If you want to have a little more fun with your World Series of Poker betting, Ladbrokes and Betfair both offer the opportunity to bet on more than just the winner. Ladbrokes has ten different bets right now on what will go on with the final hand. For example, you can bet on the winning hand being one pair or worse at 11:10 odds or two pair or better at 4:6 odds. On a separate bet, things get more specific, breaking down the odds for each type of winning hand, from high card to royal flush. Not that we don’t expect the house to be setting things up in its favor, but the royal flush is a particular awful bet at 1,000:1 considering the odds of hitting one are about 30 times worse.

Ladbrokes is also offering bets on the color of the last flop and specific bets as to the value, color, and suit of the turn and river cards of the final hand.

Over on Betfair, it is a little different, as that site’s WSOP betting is set up as an exchange, wherein players actually book action with each other, instead of against the house. There are no “back” or “lay” figures listed yet for any of the more interesting prop bets, but if anyone cares do give it a whirl, bets can be made on such things as who of the November Nine will be the first eliminated, who will make it to heads-up, and whether the champion will be from the United States or the rest of the world.

Betfair also lists two matchbets right now, essentially “last longer” bets between two players. Sindelar and Larrabe are paired in one, while Jorryt van Hoof and Felix Stephenson are paired in the other.
