It’s nearly time for the November Nine

Hi there, it’s been a while since my last post so I thought I’d do some catching up.

As you may well know, action at the final table of the World Series of Poker is due to get underway on November 7.

Last year, for the first time in the event’s history, WSOP organisers pushed the final table back to November, making it even more of a showpiece event than usual.

The decision was a great success, with millions watching Peter Eastgate become the youngest Main Event champion.

With a first prize of over $8.5 million, this year’s ‘November Nine’, as they are known, have a lot to play for.

Over the next few days I will be providing profiles of the players, so keep checking back.

In the meantime, I give you the seating arrangement and the chip-counts going into the final table:

Seat 1: Darvin Moon, 58,930,000 tournament chips
