World Series Of Poker Final Table Set

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) narrowed the field from over 7,000 to the final table of 9.  The final table takes place and the 9 remaining players are called the “November Nine.”  Witty, huh?

Following 13 days of intense competition at the 2010 World Series of Poker(1), two North American PokerStars players have advanced to join the elite ‘November Nine’ and will compete for the $8,944,138 first prize and the title of 2010 World Series of Poker champion.  Canadian Jonathan Duhamel and American Jason Senti skillfully outplayed their competition to earn the coveted seats at the final table, and now await the November 6 final date for their next shot at the grand prize.

That’s quite a prize for the winner.  It’s amazing how far the WSOP has come from it’s small beginnings.  Here’s a look at the November Nine from the Atlantic City Weekly blog.
