2010 World Series of Poker Final Table

Handicapping the final table of the 2010 World Series of Poker might get a little bit easier now that the field has been reduced to nine.  The prize is the biggest of any other poker tournament out there: $8.9 million!  The final table, featuring the so-called November Nine, plays out this coming weekend.

There are odds being offered on the final table of the 2010 WSOP at gambling websites the likes of SBG Global.

While the obvious favorite to win would seem to be Michael Mizrachi, he is actually between 5/1 and 6/1 odds (+525 to be exact for a payout potential of $525 on every $100 bet)

Mizrachi is the most famous of the final players.  While nowhere near as successful as last year’s final table star, Phil Ivey, Mizrachi’s popularity in the poker world is high up on the totem pole.  He is also among this year’s most controversial.

 

Michael Mizrachi (5/1 odds) – Mizrachi comes into this weekend’s World Series of Poker final having gone on a successful run during July’s WSOP side events.  The North Miami Beach-born player won over $1.5 million at the Event #2 - WSOP Players Championship.

Prior to this accomplishment, Mizrachi was getting much negative press for a $340,000 tax lien and two home foreclosures.

``Sometimes you get into a hole, and you can't dig yourself out of it,' he told the news outlet.

 

Jonathan Duhamel (pays $225 on a $100 bet) and John Dolan (pays $350 on a $100 bet) – The reason these two players are favorites is easy.  They are the chip leaders.

The Boucherville, Quebec-born Duhamel has 65.9 million chips and enjoyed a significant lead over his opponents.

"I know I'm lucky to be here," he commented to one media outlet, "but at the same time I think I played a great game."

Florida’s own, John Dolan, had just over $216k in total lifetime “live” tournament cashes coming into the main event.  However, he is believed to have amassed over $1 million playing online with both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, where he can be found using the handle “JRD312”.

 

Jason Senti (pays $1950 on every $100 bet) – He’s a good play simply because he pays the best odds.  His only cash prior to the 2010 World Series of Poker was at the 2009 World Series of Poker $10k NLHE Heads-Up Championship.  Senti placed 32nd and cashed at $17,987.  He plays online as "PBJaxx".

 

The other 2010 WSOP hopefuls and their odds are:

Joseph Cheong (pays $750 for every $100 bet)

John Racener (pays $750)

Matthew Jarvis (pays $900)

Filippo Candio (pays $900)

Cuong Soi Nguyen (pays $1500 for every $100 bet)
