Martin Staszko Favourite To Lift WSOP Championship At Online Betting Exchange With In-Play Betting Expected To Reach Fever Pitch

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Nov. 4, 2011) - Online betting exchange has launched its World Series of Poker main event final table betting market with Czech poker pro and chip leader Martin Staszko currently 9/2 favourite to lift the $8.7 million title.

This Sunday's event will be aired with a 15-minute delay on ESPN2 at 3:30 pm ET and poker fans around the world will be able to bet in-play at meaning players can bet hand-by-hand as the event unfolds in real time.

There will be plenty of action to suit all pockets and the highly liquid markets sure to entice the bigger players as well as the more casual punter.

Andrew Pantling, spokesman for, said "With our stable of Matchbook poker pros chomping at the bit to get involved in this market in-running we're guaranteed to have the best liquidity of any betting exchange for poker fans.

"We also asked James Bord to keep his mouth shut this time after his recent WSOPE pronouncements that UK players were better than US players which got Tony G involved in the betting and ended up costing us $144,000 in refunded bets. Thanks James!"

However in a dramatic U-turn from his previous position Bord is backing his friend Ben Lamb to win the WSOP Main event saying, "The smart money is on Lamb. USA, USA, USA!"
