All about the November Nine

November 6, 2009

wsoplogoTomorrow it is finally time for the final table of the 2009 WSOP to start. Just like the name is suggesting it is the final nine players that will return the Rio in Las Vegas to fight for the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event title.

The rookie of the year in the 2009 WSOP is without a doubt Darvin Moon who is the chip leader out of the November Nine with $58.930.000 in chips. The question is if that is enough to take down the poker pro Phil Ivey who is currently holding $9.765.000 in chips.

What is the November Nine?
The November Nine is the nickname given to the final nine players of the World Series of Poker Main Event.
