2019 WSOP Prop Bets
World Series of Poker 2019 is upon us and is already generating excitement from different quarters.
The 50th anniversary of the biggest poker tournament has attracted numerous WSOP prop bets with the most popular prop bet so far features Shaun Deeb and Doyle Brunson with Kane Kalas at the center of it all. Depending on the outcome, Kane Kalas stands to lose or gain a hefty amount.
Shaun Deeb Prop Bet
Kane Kalas is a reputable poker player and has been grinding live poker tournament for several years now. Before trying his luck on a live felt, he was an accomplished online poker player with thousands of dollars to his name.
Kalas is betting 5% on his and Joe Mckeehen’s performance against Shaun Deeb’s belief in Phil Helmuth’s performance in the WSOP Main Event.
The Doyle Brunson prop bet
After getting into a prop Bet with Deeb, Kane Kalas got into another bet, this time with Doyle Brunson.
From the horse’s mouth, Kalas said: “After that bet when we were talking about it on stream, Doyle [Brunson] spoke up and said that he also liked Hellmuth’s chances, so Doyle and I made a separate bet.”
However, Brunson’s proposition is not as straightforward as Deeb’s. If Phil Hellmuth finishes top 1% in the main event, Kalas will have to pay Doyle fifty thousand dollars.
On the other hand, Kalas chose 10 players whom Brunson will have to part with $5k for each 1% finish.
To defend his proposition, Brunson argued that “Hellmuth obviously had tremendous success at the world series, but he misses most of day 1, where there’s a decent amount of value because he often likes to register near the end of the Day.”
Kalas, however, admitted that Hellmuth has a huge edge against amateurs but he believes that the edge will be considerably thinned by solid professionals in the late stages of the event.
“I think you’ll see Hellmuth’s edge go down compared to a Joe McKeehan for example, or some of the people on my list, Jake Schindler or Justin Bonomo, for example,” Kalas argued.
When asked why he included Justin Bonomo in his WSOP main event dream team, he said that he doesn’t think Bonomo’s “main Event results were indicative of how he’d perform this year. He’s spent a lot of time in the last couple of years specifically on live tournaments.”
Players in Kala’s dream team include
1. Jake Schindler
2. Joe McKeehen
3. Justin Bonomo
4. Alex Foxen
5. Kane Kalas
6. Paul Volpe
7. Ivan Luca
8. Brian Yoon
9. Adrián Mateos
10. David Peters
