Paddy Power covers the 2008 WSOP with final table bets

Ireland's largest bookmaker Paddy Power is offering a "To Make the Final Table" market on the upcoming 2008 WSOP main event in Las Vegas.

The biggest stars in the poker world will compete alongside thousands of amateurs at the Main Event, which is scheduled to begin on July 3rd and play down to the final table of 9 players on July 14th. At this point play will be suspended until early November, when the final table will be played out on live television.

Defending champion Jerry Yang is available at 300/1 and 2006 champion Jamie Gold is available at 200/1, while some of the world's most famous players, including Gavin Griffin, Phil Ivey, Patrick Antonius & Gus Hansen, make up an elite group of professionals available at 100/1.

The "Top Irish Player" market will be hotly contested as usual, with Ireland's top players competing to be the 2nd Irishman (after Noel Furlong) to take home a Main Event bracelet. A collection of the top players on the island makes up the leading group available at 22/1.
