Now, the Wayfarer-wearing former November Niner is stacked with the chiplead headed into Day 6. With only 79 players left and the possibility of rejoining the Final Table, Mark has a real shot at becoming a household name amongst all poker players.

Newhouse, prior to last year, was known for winning a World Poker Tour title back in 2006. He, of course, finished in 9th place in the 2013 WSOP Main Event for $ 733,224 and now, incredibly, he’s making another run here in 2014 looking to make it back-to-back final tables.

In this clip Mark talks with Remko Rinkema from PokerNews about how his previous experience in this event is helping him deal with the pressure of trying to go back-to-back.

All day on Day 5 it seemed like Mark could do no wrong, taking out pocket Kings with AQss, knocking out AK with KQ, whenever Mark was in a hand, it seemed as if the cards were falling in his favor.

Here’s Mark talks with Bluff Magazine about how, while he table was tough, he felt good and ran better.

In the penultimate day of pre-November 9 play, the spotlight in on Newhouse as a return to the final table would likely be the marquee storyline of the ESPN broadcast…and I’m sure they’d like to have Jean-Robert Bellande sitting in the stands.
