The PartyPoker World Open at the Three Mills Studios, London gets underway on April 27th and odds are available at http://www.PartyBets.com . Roland De Wolfe is the 20/1 favourite to win the title and is certainly the one to watch after his recent impressive displays on the world circuit.
A PartyBets.com spokesman said: "The odds suggest we are afraid of the 'Big Bad De Wolfe.' We wouldn't want to take a walk through the woods with Roland, but, then again he's more likely to challenge us to a marathon card session than eat us alive."
"Other big runners include Juha Helppi, Liz Lieu, Ian Frazer, Vicky Coren, the Hendon Mob, the Devilfish (another we wouldn't take a walk in the woods with) and Arshad Hussain, who has recently confirmed his participation."
The tournament features the strongest field in its history and features 72 players with a $7,000 buy-in and a total prize pool in excess of $500,000. The expected payout for the winner is $200,000. The event is produced by Matchroom Sport and will be broadcast on Five in the UK later this year and distributed worldwide.
The tournament starts on the 27th April with a celebrity table, with the winner of that heat joining the pros. The semi-finals start on May 3rd with the final on the evening of May 4th.
