JC Tran and Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan are marked up as early favourites heading the pack at 12/1. There are only six players to add before the field is full and we can get down to the action.
Some of the biggest names in poker will be pitting their wits against each other at the World Open V. One player to look out for is Yevgeniy Timoshenko who recently picked up a cool $2,149,960 for winning the 2009 WPT Championship and is currently on fire at the WSOPE.
You can catch the Ukranian born American at 14/1, well worth a small punt if current form is anything to go by.
With all these young whizz kids dominating the poker scene it’s nice to see that some of the legends of the game are still making the running. Partypoker.com global ambassador Mike Sexton will be gracing the tables of the swanky Palm Beach Casino in the heart of London’s Mayfair.
Not to be out done by the young upstarts Mike is amongst the favourites at 15/1.
The rest of the ‘Partypoker Team’ – Ian Frazer, Felipe Ramos, Bodo Sbrzesny and Remi Biechel will also be attending. This is the first time that all of our team will be competing against each other so expect some tough competition between our guys for bragging rights.
Battle for the title of PartyPoker.com World Open V champion commences on October 11th. Be sure to come back to the blog to keep up-to-date with all of the action as it happens.
