The 2014 World Series of Poker features 65 unique events and will run May 27 - July 14. Two players that will be fighting extra hard for a bracelet this summer are Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey.
In case you missed it, Negreanu and Ivey have made it possible to bet against them winning a bracelet this summer in Vegas to even money. However, as you probably figured out, they are not targeting the regular joes but people who can fork out between $5k and $1 million on one single bet!
Negreanu and Ivey have won a combined 15 gold bracelets, so it's defiantly now an easy bet if you have $5k+ to risk. According to some betting experts, the two pros should have a slight advantage - mainly because there are multiple high-buy events that aren't likely to create big field sizes, including the 56-player cap BIG ONE for ONE DROP. Let's assume that 56 players enter the latter, then Negreanu and Ivey will represent 3.57% of the entire field size. According to Sam Trickett, who finished runner-up to Antonio Esfandari in the 2011 BIG ONE for ONE DROP, it might be enough to win 1-2 big hands to make it to the final table in the tournament in question.
