November sees the lucky nine in the World Series of Poker Main Event final table battle it out for the illusive bracelet. The Wsop final table will be played on the 5 to 7 November in the Rio, Las Vegas.
108 days pass between knowing they are part of the ‘November Nine’ and when the big day comes round to fight it out in the final table. We're sure that not one day will pass when they don't dream of winning the $8,711,956 main prize and the bracelet. Eight of the nine finalists will become millionaires - whoever is out first will walk home just missing millionaire status with winning $782,115. Seven nations makeup the final nine: America, England, Ireland, Germany, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Belize.
The current chip leader is Martin Staszko from Trinec, Czech Republic with 40,175,000 chips, second is Eoghan O’Dea from Dublin, Republic of Ireland with 33,925,000 chips and third is Matt Giannetti form Las Vegas, America with 24,750,000 chips. Bottom of the stack is Sam Holden from Sussex, England with 12,375,000 chips.
Of all the players in the final table the one to watch is Ben Lamb from Tulsa, America. Of the November Nine he has won more money in WSOP events than any other player and is the only one to have a WSOP bracelet. He has already had a good run in the 2011 WSOP: he has had four cash finishes, and one of the cash finishes was winning a bracelet and $814,436 in prize money. He starts the final table with 20,875,000 chips. He will be hard to beat but putting your money on anyone at this stage will be difficult - all are good players and no one will be easy to put out. Anyone could walk with the bracelet.
The final table is gearing up to be an epic battle of some fine poker players. ESPN will have all the coverage. It’s going to be a good one, so keep an eye out for it!
