Celebrities at Long Shot at WSOP

13 July 2006

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (PRESS RELEASE) -- According to odds makers at Sportsbook.com, the world's largest online sportsbook and casino, celebrities Ben Affleck and Toby Maguire will not have what it takes to leave the World Series of Poker Championships with a bracelet. The Hollywood hunks are each a 2000-1 bet to rake in all the chips.

The Rio All Suite Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada will host the tournament from July 28th to the final play downs on August 10th. Front runners to take the title are 5 time bracelet winner Phil Ivey at 150-1 and Poker lifer and legend Daniel Negreanu at 225-1. Leading up to the tournament Negreau has had an impressive showing in World Series events including four top ten finished and winnings of almost $500,000. Ivey is also on the upswing, having just placed second in the Omaha High/Low World Series game on July 8th.

"This tournament is the grand daddy of live poker, if the limit of 8000 entries is reached the first prize could pay out $10 million dollars,' said Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. "Everybody bets, and with poker all over the television and internet every poker fan out there has a favorite player to back. With Sportsbook.com, the chip leader won't be the only one to win at the WSOP."
