November Nine Field Set

by Omar

After having survived 8 of the most grueling days of poker of their entire lives, the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event has played its way down to the final table, or more commonly known as, the November Nine. Over 7,000 players descended on Las Vegas looking for a shot at poker glory and now just a select few remain.

The final table is devoid of poker pros, except for one name, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. The Miami native started off his WSOP with an impressive victory at the $50K Players Championship, regarded by many as the most prestigious event at the series. To bookend end it with a Main Event win would be one of the greatest achievements in the history of the game. Day 8 began with 27 hopefuls who could practically smell the final table and although chip stacks were deep, the action was hot and heavy with players looking to make some big moves and stake their claim to the final table seats awaiting them. The crowds were delighted by the action swirling around the poker room and with seemingly every card turn, cheers could be heard emanating from every corner.

The action did however slow down once 10 players remained as the contestants were quite aware of what was at stake. The ultimate bubble boy was Brandon Steven who lost a classic coin flip when his AK failed to improve against Matthew Harvis’ pocket Queens. The 9 remaining players will now have a few months to prepare themselves for what amounts to be the most lucrative sit and go of their lives with a first place payday of $8,944,138.
