2011 November Nine

July 25, 2011

The November Nine have been determined, and it has turned out to be a very internationally diverse final table with seven countries represented. The chip leader, Martin Staszko is from the Czech Republic and has more than 40 million chips to start the final table off with in November. Next is Eoghan O’Dea from none other than Dublin, Ireland with nearly 34 million chips. Then with the third highest chip stack, we have Matt Giannetti from Las Vegas, Nevada with nearly 25 million chips and running a very close fourth place is another Las Vegan, Phil Collins with just under 24 million chips. Fifth stacked is Ben Lamb, also from the US, but not from Nevada. Lamb is from Tulsa, Oklahoma and favored by many to take the bracelet. Sixth stacked is Badih Bou-Nahra from Belize with 19.7 million in chips; seventh stacked is Pius Heinz from Cologne, Germany with about 16.5 million chips. Representing Ukraine is Anton Makiievskyi with 13.8 million in chips, and with the smallest chip stack is Sam Holden from Sussex, UK with about 12.4 million chips.

The unfortunate tenth place finisher was John Hewitt from Costa Rica, who was finally knocked out by O’Dea.

The WSOP Final Table will resume on November 5th and will culminate on the 7th of November when the 2011 WSOP Champion will be determined at the Rio in Las Vegas. Ninth place is guaranteed $782K, and the top eight finishers are guaranteed to become millionaires. The tournament winner will earn more than $8.7 million in cash and the coveted Main Event gold bracelet.
