    I laughed at #3

    I love that in Vegas you can gamble on gambling. LOL

    If you could place only one which would you take and why.

    Esfandiari to outcash Laak

    I think he is a better tournament player than Laak so it's even money on an odds on shot to me.

    Is #8 really viable?

    I don't think either of them are going to show up.

    I think #10 is a lock. Has there been a year in the last 5 that there hasn't been a multiple bracelet winner? I can't see the odds at work, but I'd think it would be 1:2 or worse.

    I was thinking the same thing as soon as I saw that.

    If the Pokerstars buyout of Full Tilt went through before the start of the WSOP I think there would be a very slim chance you might have seen Chris Ferguson at this years WSOP... but even if everything works out great in the end, it will be a few years before you see Howard Lederer show up, if he ever does again.

    are these prop bets at all sports books, or just at caesars properties?

    i will be getting into town monday, just 5 days from now, and plan was to try and play in a couple of satellites to earn entry into the tuesday 5 pm event, but maybe my money would have more of a chance just betting some of these props!

    These are likely just online casino/sportsbook prop bets

    Just checking the link posted above it mentions they are from Bovada and Bodog

    #'s 5 & 10 look like something I would take. As someone else said there have been multiple winners for 5-6 years in a row. Also I would definitely take the over in ME attendance. Bellagio 5 diamond event was very low so I would think that many are holding on to their cash for the WSOP.

    I would actually think a lower turnout at Bellagio means the state of the poker economy isn't that great.

    I kinda wondered what would happen if they upped the buy-in to $20k (which unfortunately would price me out of the Main). It was $10k in the late 70's.
