I'm not going to be able to make any bets but it still should be interesting to watch.In play sports betting is exploding and I think combining that trend with poker is a smart thing to try.

since I'm the Irish guy at FCP and I have posts from like 5 years ago asking you to come to the Irish Open I hope you'll remember Jam-Fly when I start talking to you at the bar!Few tips to partake in Irish 'banter'. Call everyone a 'gowl' and then just inform them that you are 'only slagging'. Saying 'the bankers ruined this country [ie Ireland]' is sure to be received well by all. But most importantly, although not relevant to all Irish banter (it would be more of a younger age group familiar with this), anytime something inappropriate happens (it can be in any situation), you have to say 'THAT'S LIMERICK CITY!!!'. If you could manage to get that in at some stage I'd really appreciate it.

With all due respect to Daniel, have you ever thought of betting on yourself to be the first one out, and then try to be eliminated as quick as possible. I do understand that this is not very genuine in terms of poker ethics, but I guess you can win ten times more by doing that rather than winning the tournament...

A coupe things: 1) Max bet is $10002) Players who participate are not allowed to bet It doesn't make financial sense to try it. If a bet of more than $10k came in a player to be the first out, it would be very easy to detect a problem.

couldn't you just give 10 people 1k a piece and have them bet it on you?

1) it's unethical2) if DN did this, and was found out, his reputation would be damaged. Why? See point 13) it's a -EV gamble when you factor in the possible repercussions of being found out4) it's too much effort for such a small return5) DN probably cares more about actually winning than profiting

Then you'd break even? Why fly all the way out there to break even? More importantly, if 10 $1k bets to be first out come in on a person, then they bust in questionable fashion, it raises major suspicion.

10 people wagering $1k each at 10-1 means $10k profit per person. 10 people at $10k profit each = $100k profit. Winning the tournament = $90k profit. coug2828 could be onto something...

No, because:All hands are shown. If a guy busts on the first hand in a bizarre fashion it would be scrutinized and any peculiar transactions will get the person CAUGHT which just isn't worth it. 10 $1000 bets on first one out is pretty unlucky to come from 10 different people.

Daniel, I'm very aware about how stupid an idea this actually is. My serious response was this:

My last response was sarcastic

Well I'm sure that one of the Dublin Ten will double at some point.
