WSOP Final Table Odds: Canadian McLaughlin Third Betting Choice
The 2013 WSOP Main Event is down to the November Nine final table and a young Canadian poker pro is among the chip leaders.
Sitting in third place with a 26,525,000 stack, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin of Brossard, Quebec will attempt be the first Canadian poker player to win the WSOP Main Event since Jonathan Duhamel beat everyone in 2010.
McLaughlin is no stranger to the WSOP Main Event already having two deep runs before this year’s event. Despite being only 25-years-old, this summer was the fifth main event for the young player.
He is the third betting choice at 5/1, according to Bodog.
In 2009 he managed to finish 30th, pocketing $253k in the process. Two years later in the 2011 WSOP Main Event, McLaughlin ran deep again and won $76k for an 86th place finish.
Already guaranteed $733k this year, the Brossard native has already surpassed his biggest cash to date and could go on to win millions if he manages to use his stack well and finish in the top four this year. His Main Event run is his seventh WSOP cash.
McLaughlin will be in tough in the November Nine final table. The largest chip stack belongs to J.C. Tran who is one of the most successful circuit tournament players of all time, earning over $9 million and three WSOP bracelets thus far in his career.
