Poker World Open Underway
Party Poker, a leading online casino and poker group, is holding the Party Poker World Open in Three Mills Studios, London. The tournament began on April 27th, 2007, and odds for online gambling fans are available on the Internet. The favorite to win this prestigious title, among online bettors and bookmakers, is Roland De Wolfe at 20/1 odds. And after his recent impressive play on the world poker circuit, he is certainly the pro to watch. Other big names to follow are Liz Lieu, Ian Frazer, Juha Helppi, the Hendon Mob, Vicky Coren, and other poker stars.
‘The odds suggest we are afraid of the ‘Big Bad De Wolfe’. We wouldn’t want to take a walk through the woods with Roland, but, then again he’s more likely to challenge us to a marathon card session than eat us alive,’ said a spokesman for one of the online casinos offering odds on a De Wolfe victory. The tournament features the strongest field in its history and features 72 players with a US 7,000 dollar buy-in and a total prize pool of more than US 500,000 dollars.
The expected payout for the winner of this major event is US 200,000 dollars. The tournament is produced by Matchroom Sport and will be broadcast on Five in the UK later this year. It will also be distributed worldwide. The tournament started with a celebrity table, with the winner of that heat moving on to join the pros. The semi-finals start on May 3rd, 2007 with the final on the evening of May 4th. This is a poker event which will be followed avidly and continuously by poker novices and veterans. The Party Poker World Open is a competitive, fun and central poker tournament on the professional circuit and draws crowds from all over the globe.
