Here the betting odds a bookmaker in England is offering for the upcoming World Pool Championships.I'm not going to bet,howver, based on these odds what three players would you guys bet on and (briefly) why?Include a longshot pick to make it interesting.

My choices:

Alex Pagulayan:
There never has been a back to back 9 ball world champion with the new international format.Alex has finished 1st and 2nd in the last two and his proven he can withstand the pressure of a major.

Chin Sung Yang:

Playing on his home turf, he'll have the crowd behind him.He is definitly one of the most gifted talented players on the planet and recently won on the Asian tour against formidable competition.Pool is already huge in Asia, if he wins it'll be monsterous.

Thomas Engert:

This is my longshot pick,however, is he really an longshot? At 66-1 he is definitly worth betting on.Last year he had a breakout year winning the World Pool Masters(against the very best selected competition) and the International tournament of champions.Ortmann and Hohmann consider him the strongest of the Germans and this guy has ran over 450 in straight.

Sleeper pick:
Earl, although getting old,if he wakes up,watch out!

Hohmann just went through the European 14.1 like a dose of salts. We know he can win. At 40:1, I think I have to favor him as a dark horse over Earl.

I'm not a betting man, but if I were Corey Duell at 40-1 certainly would appeal to me.

Gabe Owen, at 66-1 is also worth a look, if I was a betting man.
