Hellmuth Odds-on to Win 12th Bracelet

PKR Sportsbook offers range of WSOP betting markets

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 1, 2012) - A week after launching their Facebook Fantasy WSOP game, next-generation poker games room PKR is now offering odds on a variety of World Series of Poker betting markets via its sportsbook

Phil Hellmuth is 4/5 to win an historic 12th WSOP bracelet, with odds also available for Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu. The legendary trio are also available in match bets against the combined forces of Team PKR Pro. The quintet, led by Triple Crown winner Jake Cody, is available at even money to claim gold this year.

Other markets on offer include - a female to win the Main Event or reach the Main Event final table; age or nationality of Main Event champion and Main Event final table chipleader; Main Event field size; nation match betting (eg. GB v Germany total bracelets).

"After his three runner-up finishes at last year's WSOP, we expect Phil Hellmuth to exact revenge this summer. With so many excellent female poker players on the scene, it may also be time for a female player to reach the Main Event's final table. We expect big things from Team PKR Pro - which includes bracelet holders Jake Cody and Scott Shelley - and they're justified favourites to win more bracelets than Daniel Negreanu. Whatever your opinion, from national pride to individual brilliance, we're excited to offer players the chance to back it with us."
