Poker News April 2007

The earlybird supposedly gets the worm and BetUS.com already is angling for wagers on which players will make the main event final table at the 2007 World Series of Poker.

By this time next month, offshore betting sites are expected to be awash with odds-to-win on poker’s most prestigious event, as officials at sponsoring Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc., are set to launch this year’s WSOP June 1, with the $10,000 No-Limit Texas Hold’em Championship slated to run July 6-17.

Last year’s WSOP attracted 8,773 attendees, but many observers predict this season’s tournament may draw only one-fourth as many entrants because Harrah’s has severed ties with offshore books that aren’t official co-sponsors.
