According to a new poll by reputable website DuplicatePoker, Scott Montgomery is a massive favourite to win the World Series of Poker $10,000 No Limit Hold ‘em Main Event.
In a survey of over one thousand poker players, almost one third of them named him favourite by a near two-to-one margin over the rest of the nine. Chip leader Dennis Phillips with over 26,000,000 chips was named as 12%.
According to Moshe Davidovich, chief operating officer of DuplicatePoker.com, 'The most skilled poker players have the ability to effectively manage a game and rely purely on technique. In this regard, Scott Montgomery stands out. And as our poll indicates, he has gained a high level of respect for his skills among poker circles.'
Shortstack Kelly Kim is still given 9% to win, equal to the most famous of the nine Chino Reem and over twice as much as the 4% offered to Ylon Schwartz and Darus Suharto.
