Hollywood Celebrities a Long Shot at WSOP
By Andrew B
Online odds makers, Sportsbook.com, is putting little faith in celebrity players making an impact on the World Series of Poker this August (WSOP).

Ben Affleck and Toby Maguire are taking on the pros, but the odds aren't in their favour, with the Hollywood hunks facing 2000-1 odds 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 legend Daniel Negreanu at 225-1.

Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com, said, '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.'
