WSOP Main Event: Meet the November Nine, and the Man Who Made it Twice in a Row
Posted at 21:00 2014-07-15 by PokerNetwork Staff
After eight long days of poker in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event established its official final table of nine.
On the final day of Event #65: $10,000 Main Event this summer, the surviving nine made a big step towards fame and glory, and perhaps more importantly, towards winning $10 million.
27 runners started the day on 3 tables with Martin Jacobsonleading the way. He secured his seat in the finals, but if history is any indication of what should we expect, he is not likely to be the next world champion.
Why? Because no one ever won this title, after having the chip lead on Day 1 of the tournament. And unfortunately for Martin, he did on Day 1A.
However, the real star of this Main Event is not the Swedeish pro, but the man named Mark Newhouse, who pulled of one of the most impressive feats of tournament poker by making the November Nine back-to-back years. Mark told us about his expectations in a video interview after Day 5.
