Who's your bet to win the Team Pro Online Heads-Up Challenge?
You might recall how last week BetStars took bets on the winner of the EPT Dublin Main Event. It was the first instance of them laying odds on a final table with pre-match favourite Dzmitry Urbanovich proving that the odds setters knew a thing or two about compiling prices (or reading chip counts the night before).
Now though, BetStars doors are open for a different poker contest.
Betting has just opened its doors for the Team Pro Online Heads-Up Challenge, part of Team Pro Online week running until this Sunday.
It's a 32 player slog, comprising of Team Pro Online and qualifiers who won their chance to take on the pros and (potentially) win big - no easy feat when you consider who they're up against.
As you can see in the chart below, Randy "nanonoko" Lew leads the betting at 12/1, followed by a bunch of team mates whose odds range from 14/1 through to 25/1 (surely there's some value to be had on some "outsiders").
Then the qualifiers who won the right to take on the Pros at their own game, and win cash prizes and packages along the way. You can back these guys too, and at some enticingly long odds. Take a look at what's on offer:
The Team Pro Online Heads-Up challenge starts this Saturday, March 5, at 14:00 ET, leaving you plenty of time to place your bet. That's when they play down from 32 to four remaining players. The semi-finals start on Sunday March 6 at 14:00 ET and feature a best of three contest, with the final at 16:00 ET, also best of three. If a qualifier steers past the pros and wins, they'll get a package worth €10,000 to the EPT Grand Final.
It's obvious who's going to win, right? Well now you can make your choice.
There are plenty of prizes still to be won this Team Pro Online week. Check out the homepage for details.
