The inaugural iSeriesLIVE kicks off tomorrow evening at 17:00 in Dublin with a spectacular promotional event featuring some of the biggest names in the business. Fans of the game will be able to watch these top professional players battle it out at the felt, with hole cards exposed, and be able to place bets on the action as it unfolds in front of them!
The first even is a winner-takes-all 10-man freezeout featuring Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Faraz Jaka, Eoghan O'Dea, Marvin Rettenmaier, Maria Ho, David "Devilfish" Ulliott, Carlos Mortensen, James Dempsey and Tobias Reinkemeier in what should be an extremely interesting event to watch if not just for the antics of Ulliott and Hellmuth!
Fans can bet on the overall winner, the first elimination, player last-longer bets and a whole host of other options. At time of writing the favourite to win the event is Negreanu at 11/2 with Hellmuth second favourite at 13/2 and Maria Ho being the rank outsider with odds of 10/1.
Future events are going to feature 36-players and a range of different disciplines such as six-max tournaments, heads-up games and more. Those taking part will also have the chance to win money even if they do not cash in the events thanks to the unique financial structure. Each participant will receive a revenue split of all the money that is bet on or against them during the live events, which could make for some interesting plays being made and trash talk spouted off in order to gain new fans and enemies! All in all it should be very interesting to watch and bet on.
