Some High Stake Gamblers Bet On Candidates – Even though the Pennsylvania native bet little on Trump, he still thinks Biden is the clear favorite to win the election. He couldn’t resist betting against Biden at -200.
“I thought I gave it, but had to call the register on it,” he tweeted at Kyle Julius.
Poker legend Doyle Brunson isn’t actively looking for bets but is using Glantz’s tweet as an opportunity to reveal why there are still people willing to bet against Biden.
Five-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jason Mercier echoed Brunson’s sentiments about the election but tweeted Monday morning that he was trying to bet on Biden.
High-stakes poker entrepreneur and enthusiast, Bill Perkins, went even further. He wanted to bet that Biden would win one of the reddest states historically in the country’s history.
Brett Richey, a former poker player who made an estimated $ 1.6 million from live tournaments says Trump’s real odds are closer to where the market is betting on Biden today.
In a follow-up tweet to WSOP bracelet winner Bryan Campanello, Richey explained that he believes voting is an outdated metric for a flawed political race. Combine that with the uniqueness of a Trump president and that’s enough for Richey to make that statement.
“It’s hard to be a model for his strengths,” tweet Richey. “His internal poll is much stronger than anyone else’s in 2016, why is everyone so sure outsiders are right this time?”
