    November,2010 TBD FINAL TABLE

    Defending champion Joe Cada and others will battle. I wonder who will be the big pro to make a run this year. I haven't followed much of the other world seires so far this year.

    Discuss everything in here

    I had to look up "WSOP" to find out what you were talking about. I often see this on TV.

    There was a customer at Wally World (about a week and a half ago) who mentioned that he was going to Vegas to play in the WSOP..............................I wonder how he did.

    Why is there such a gap between getting down to 9 players and then the final table?

    So ESPN has time to show episodes of the main event early rounds in the months before the Novembor Nine. Show all the taped episodes and build up the hype, then show the final table live. Strictly for ESPN. I think it ruins the flow of the tournament, its like the final table is an entirely different tournament.

    and they don't show the final table live. if they did, maybe it would make more sense but it would be like 20 hours of live television with huge lulls in the action where people are just raising and stealing blinds and never even seeing a flop. not many casual fans would want to sit through that.

    It's available on pay per view live. While I wouldn't like to watch the whoel thing, I woudl like to see an extended cut that shows more than just all ins.

    wow, i never knew you could watch it live on pay per view. they do a really terrible job of advertising it if that's the case. do you have a link to more info?

    I found this. From 2006 I am pretty sure they continued offering it

    yeah, i knew about it back then (which was before the november 9 format anyway), but i'm pretty sure it's the only year they did it. i've found live audio broadcasts of the final table, but it's not really the same. the thing that sucks about audio coverage and the live coverage from 2006 is that in both cases you aren't able to see the players' hole cards.

    Good to see Johnny Chan near the top. I hope he is the pro who makes a deep run this year. There is always at least one bigtime pro to make a deep run. Mizrachi still in as well.

    Day 4 is done, and they're in the money. Johnny Chan is still top 15 in chips, and there's a few recognizable names with a lot of chips. I'm officially rooting for Chan now. He's got a healthy stack, and they're under 600 players left. I'd love to see him make a deep run.

    Day 5 is done and Johnny Chan is top 10 in chips, currently sitting ninth. There are a few pros left, Micheal Mizrachi for one, has got a very healthy stack. Here's your top ten stacks to start days 6.

    1 Evan Lamprea 3,564,000
    2 Michael Skender 3,527,000
    3 Joseph Cheong 3,357,000
    4 Duy Le 3,186,000
    5 Theo Jorgensen 3,088,000
    6 Bryn Kenney 2,902,000
    7 Matt Affleck 2,896,000
    8 Alexander Kostritsyn 2,564,000
    9 Johnny Chan 2,559,000
    10 Sebastian Panny 2,442,000

    They'll start day six at level 21, 8000/16000 blinds with a 2000 ante.

    He ran Kings into Aces real early in the day, lost about 1.2 million on the hand, never recovered.

    Micheal "The Grinder" Mizrachi is up to 2nd in chips as I type this.

    down to 3 tables. Mirachi still in. Joseph Cheong is the chip leader

    Mizrachi in trouble. Low stacked with 15 left. Matt Jarvis is the new leader

    I remember Basan Nabib now. He is a pretty established pro still alive. A bracelet and 19 cahes at WSOP in his career.

    We have our final nine.

    Stop reading now if you don't want to know.






    Seriously, you should stop.








    1 Jonathan Duhamel 65,975,000
    2 John Dolan 46,250,000
    3 Joseph Cheong 23,525,000
    4 John Racener 19,050,000
    5 Matthew Jarvis 16,700,000
    6 Filippo Candio 16,400,000
    7 Michael Mizrachi 14,450,000
    8 Soi Nguyen 9,650,000
    9 Jason Senti 7,625,000

    Sounds like they played 10 handed for about five and half hours. When they re-start in November, they'll be in level 36, playing 250,000/500,000 blinds with a 50,000 ante, which is about where I think they finished up last year. Mizrachi is probably going to be the favorite, he's got the most experience and has had a good WSOP, with a bracelet win and two other top tens. John Racener has won a WSOP circuit event and might have the second most big tournament experience. Duhamel's got the chip, but its not a dominating chip lead. So, we'll see how it all plays out.

    Can Mizrachi learn from other pros mistakes in recent years at the final table? Play too tight and allow your chip stack to shrink to the point of irrelevance. Like Ivey,Rheem,Watkinson have done in recent years?

    watkinson is always a complete nit. it serves him well in that he's able to run deep in a lot of tournaments, but not being able to change it up in the later stages costs him the chance to win those events. it seemed like rheem was pretty card dead at his final table, but i did think ivey really choked last year. it's hard to know for sure when you only see a fraction of the hands but folding pocket jacks preflop when you're short stacked is pretty strange.

    i hope mizrachi does well. he's a likable guy, but from the sound of it there are a lot of interesting characters in the november nine and they're almost all lesser known pros.

    I think Ivey knew he could outplay everyone. So he waited and waited for perfect opportunities and sometimes they don't come. Having a 4 month break may increase this mentality.


    It's almost a fact that Duhamel will make a big misstep early on and give a large amount of chips to someone around the middle of the table, say Candio. With the exception of Jamie Gold the chip leader will always do this. The question is will he be able to recover like Phillips and Moon did or crack like Hilm did.

    Can a low stack be really aggressive and climb to teh top a la Jerry Yang?

    Very interesting stuff and we have 4 months to get to know the november nine.

    has anyone been watching the episodes? After watching some I am pulling for Mizrachi and Candio at the final table.

    So far all the episodes have shown of Duhamel is him sucking out. They have showed a fair bit of Racener and Candio already. But the other members of the table haven't been shown too much yet.
