Soros stands to win billions of these following an earlier successful punt on the Pope's resignation

New York - The billionaire's Soreass Fund Management Corp has taken a huge punt on the octogenarian Cold War figurehead's downfall tomorrow.

It follows a blind tasting of his tea leaf reader's annual Loving Cup message that prompted Soros to move billions from a regular blackjack and Five Card Stud betting account into a specialized online facility.

"He stands to win close to five billion dollars," leading internet oddsmaker Aintgottaprayer.con said today, "if Queen Elizabeth steps down from the throne on March 1st.

"Voluntary or involuntary abdication - such as sudden, unexpected resignation from dropping dead syndrome - will both see him in the money."

Earlier this month Soros successfully bet and collected on a previous canny punt that Pope Benedict would formally chicken out by February 11th.

Recycled profits from those winnings are thought to be in the frame for tomorrow's gamble in a Yankee bet whose two other events remain secret.

"We're going 6/4FAV that it's Tony Blair's arrest for war crimes," the Aintgottaprayer.con source added, "followed by Obama's impeachment for, well, you-know stuff."
