bracelet bets

i’m taking the following bets:

3.25-1 on getting a bracelet this year, london counts
2-1 on getting 2 bracelets in 3years, london counts as a chop (if i win 2+ in vegas i win, if i win 8 in london 0/1 in vegas we wash)
me vs ivey getting 2-1, london counts, if we both win a bracelet its a wash (even if i win 8 and he wins 1 its a wash or vice versa)
me vs negreanu getting 2-1, london counts, if we both win a bracelet its a wash (even if i win 8 and he wins 1 its a wash or vice versa)
most cashes at wsop (with or without london) vs anyone of your choosing i get 1.3-1

if you wanna bet 5k+ and will escrow (or have someone i trust enough to vouch) message me on 2p2 and we can bet.

I’ll look before the 50k starts, and book bets then, if we bet after the 50k i’ll need 3.6-1 or some other solution (could play a bellagio prelim w/ similar # of people etc) for the 1year bet, and 2.1-1 for 2 in 3years.

If theres any crazy need for arbitration (harrah’s closes wsop after 12 events etc) all bets will be settled at the same rate as the 2-3 biggest bets i have (which in most fields will probably be with ivey/negreanu etc)

Re: bracelet bets

What would be the odds of Durrrr winning 8 WSOPE bracelets in two years?

Besides about 350 to 1?

Re: bracelet bets

how much volume are you going to be playing? are you going to do anything crazy like play the woman's event if that's what it takes to win this bet?

How many events you playing? Would have thought that's a pretty important thing that should have been mentioned in op.

Obv if he's making high stakes bracelet bets, he's not gonna be concentrating on NL events too much.

Re: bracelet bets

It would be interesting to see the odds on Dwan winning his first bracelet in NL vs any other game... anyone want to take a shot at it?

since there will be selection bias towards 5pm events, i think hes a fav to win in something other than NL. HA, PLO, 8game all combined would outweigh NL.

Re: bracelet bets

seems like he is ready to play all the games besides NL and put in a little volume this year....that is until the cash games are juicy when he is in the middle of a tourney and proceeds to donk off so he can quickly get there

hopefully you do give an A effort this year to see what kind of damage you can do

Ill lay $10/$5 per event, assuming we have some way to verify that he actually registered (or failed to register). furthermore, you can disqualify my pick if he registered but failed to show up to play a hand.
