The 2007 World Series of Poker Guide
by Karl Yu

With a field of 8,773 and top prize of US$12,000,000, the 2006 World Series of Poker’s Main Event was truly larger than life. When the field was whittled down and the carnage was over, Hollywood agent and virtual long shot Jamie Gold was the cream that rose to the top.

It’s creeping up on this year’s event, which starts on June 1, 2007 in Las Vegas, and sports books are already taking action on who will win the World Championship No-Limit Texas Hold’em Event.

Jamie Gold won’t be under the radar this year—winning the Main Event will do that to you—and is being listed at +50,000 to repeat as champ.

Poker playing is common amongst the members of the Lederer family and brother Howard and sister Annie (now with the surname Duke) are listed at +25,000 and +50,000 respectively.

The biblical Jesus is known to save and the poker player nicknamed Jesus, aka Chris Ferguson, is listed at +20,000 to take a bracelet in the World Series of Poker’s Main Event.

Greg Raymer is looking to run for Vice President under the Libertarian ticket for 2008, in the meantime, “Fossilman” is listed at +30,000 to take the championship bracelet in 2007.

Chris Moneymaker, the man with quite possibly the best name in the tournament’s history—and who also took the championship title in 2003—is listed at +50,000 to live up to his name once again this year.

Jamie Gold didn’t win last year on sheer luck alone as he was trained by a man who is no stranger to the tournament. Johnny Chan took home titles in 1987 and 1988 and is listed at +25,000 to do the same in 2007.

Another beloved veteran of the tournament and poker personality, Doyle Brunson took home his last championship title in 1977 and books are laying 600-1 odds that he will accomplish the same feat some 30 years later.

A player who hasn’t taken home a championship title, at least not yet, is Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu. However Negreanu has been fairly successful in tournament play—winning two WPT events and three WSOP bracelets in other events—and is listed at +20,000 to take home his first this year.

Joe Hachem won the championship event in 2005 and has been featured in a number of funny PokerStars commercials since. Vegas is laying 600-1 that he will win it again in 2007.

1989 WSOP Champion Phil Hellmuth is known by some as the “Poker Brat” largely because of his inability to lose with class. Hellmuth is listed at +20,000 to do the opposite this year and relive his 1989 glory.

Ben Affleck might have put his hard partying days behind him after his marriage to Jennifer Garner, but one thing he apparently hasn’t given up is poker playing and he is listed at +80,000 to win the 2007 World Series of Poker.


Proposition betting offers a refreshing break from the usual “will they win?” bets and there are some interesting ones out there, especially from Bodog:

On the final hand in last year’s NL Hold’em Championship, Jamie Gold’s pair of Qs trumped Paul Wasicka’s pair of 10s. You can wager on this year’s winning hand with either a pair of red or black cards paying out at +200 and 1 red card and 1 black card listed at -150.

For those of you who don’t know, the World Series of Poker isn’t just limited to the No Limit Texas Hold’em Championship Main Event. Prior to that, there a number of other bracelets up for grabs in other events, i.e. Limit Hold’em, H.O.R.S.E. etc.

If you think WSOP vets Doyle Brunson (+800), Johnny Chan (+450) and Phil Hellmuth (+200) will win their 11th WSOP bracelet respectively, lay down some money and even if you don’t, step up to the plate anyways at -300.

As mentioned Jamie Gold came out of nowhere to take it all last year, if you think that a big name player will once again come out on top this year, the odds are listed at +1000.
