Hey Look! Another Article On The 2014 World Series of Poker November Nine
It's a historical final table with international flair.
After 10 long days of tournament poker and 6,683 runners with $10M dreams , the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event has finally cast the leading roles for their November Nine final table.
The remaining players include a professional foosball champion, a dominating Swede, a young Spaniard and the Wayfarer-wearing poker pro who made history by becoming the first player to make back-to-back November Nines.
Let’s check them out:
Your headliner and lead story of the N9 has to be that of Mark Newhouse. Last year’s 9th place finisher is baaaaack and this time, he’s got chips. Sitting 3rd on the leaderboard, Newhouse looks to not only best his $733k haul from last year (he’s $3k shy right now) but maybe even his career best when he won a WPT Title back in 2006 for over $1.5M.

Newhouse will have to be wary of an ocean of pros that populate the table as well. Martin Jacobson, Daniel Sindelar and N9 chipleader Jorryt van Hoof have plenty of experience to go around. Jacobson is a pros pro with over $4.8M in tournament earnings and this WSOP marks his 15th 6-figure score. Sindelar doesn’t quite have the tournament cash results of Jacobson, but with 50 cashes on his resume dating back to 2007, he knows his way around a table. Jorryt van Hoof may be relatively unknown, for now, but rumors have it that during the WSOP he was playing as high as 50/100 PLO. People don’t mess around in that game and his meteoric rise up the chip charts on Day 7 proves he knows what he’s doing.

William Tonking may not have a ton of live results but that’s because he’s a New Jersey online cash game pro. According to WSOP, Tonking has taken a shot in the Main Event a couple of times before but for William, the third time was the charm. Sitting 7th in chips the 27- year old is hoping to run it up.
Billy Pappaconstantinou not only has a long name, he has a long tradition of being a champion – in foosball. “Billy Pappas” as he’s known, for obvious reasons, is a 5-time foosball champion and therefore, it can be concluded, he understands a champion’s mentality.
Then there’s the international contingency. Felix Stephensen from London by way of Norway sits 2nd in chips while 22-year old Andoni Larrabe, the baby of the bunch, also lives in London by way of Spain and he finds himself deep in only his 2nd WSOP.
Then there is Bruno Politano, the life of the party and the first Brazilian to grace the WSOP Main Event Final Table. While the WSOP rap sheet on him says that he plays poker as a hobby, he still has over 6-figures in lifetime cashes and played 10 WSOP events in his career. His rail not only brought life to the final table but even the fictitious mystery solving cowardly dog – Scooby Doo!
Let the hype machine begin as it’s nearly 4 months before these 9 strangers, sit at a poker table and stop being polite and start playing for real. The live finale of the Main Event takes place on November 10-11 on ESPN.
