  • Phil Ivey favourite to win World Series of Poker 2009
    Posted by on Nov 2nd, 2009

    On November 7 the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) main event will see its final table come together to battle it out to see who goes home with $8.5 million.

    6500 players each forked out $10k to play the main event in July [HERE] and the final 9 have had to wait till now to see who will be crowned champion.

    Over at WSOP.com they’ve been running a poll and its no surprise that poker freak Phil Ivey is a massive favourite to come from way behind and prove beyond doubt he’s the best player alive.


    Phil is a massive fan favourite getting 78% of the votes. Bookies however dont seem to share the opinions of fans and Betfair.com have given Ivey 7/1 for a win. The current chip leader Darwin Moon is the bookmakers favourite at 3/1 due to his monsterous chip stack.

    Some interesting facts about Darwin Moon..he doesn’t own a credit card or have an email address and has never played online poker. He’s a logger from Oakland and won his entry into the main event by winning a $130 buy-in tournament. Its gonna be a sick payday if he wins.

    Darwin Moon was the worst player at the final table im sure he was lucky thru out the tourny,,hes an idiot for not taking free money to wear a hat or shirt maybe he wanted to wear his look im fat shirt…pure donkey lucky he got as far as he did and i predict youll never see him at a final table anywhere!!
