Action begins: lays WSOP odds

David Williams

The cards don't hit the table at the 2007 World Series of Poker until June 1, but the action has definitely started: has laid out its initial WSOP odds, and there's no shortage of ponies to lay your money on.

Among the wagers tabled already: Who will win their 11th bracelet first: Brunson, Chan or Hellmuth? (Hellmuth is favored at 2-1). Which Phil will last longer in the Main Event, Ivey or Hellmuth?(Ivey at -140).

Which former champ will last longer in the Main Event? (Carlos Mortenson at 3-1). Which Internet pro will last longest? (Alan "BodogAri" Engel, Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy, Shane "Shaniac" Schleger, Eric "Rizen" Lynch and Kevin "BeL0WaB0Ve" Saul are all at 3-1).

And so on. Take on the All-Canadian last longer bet among Gavin Smith, Brad Booth and Daniel Negreanu. Bet on past Main Event runners-up, the longest-lasting female player, which member of Team Bodog (Josh Arieh, David Williams, Evelyn Ng) will win a bracelet, and what color will the cards of the winning hand be.

Or maybe the most salacious: The love triangle last-longer bet among Phil Laak, Jennifer Tilly and Antonio Esfandiari.
