2014 WSOP November Nine

Written by Ben Blaschke

The 2014 November Nine has been set!

Eight days after a huge field of 6,683 players took their seats with dreams of going all the way and claiming the US$10 million top prize, just nine players remain as they take a well-deserved four month break to fine tune their game and prepare for the biggest two days of their lives.

The remaining players represent six different countries – USA, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Brazil and Spain — with the most intriguing being Mark Newhouse who has achieved an incredible feat by making his second consecutive WSOP Main Event final table. Newhouse finished ninth 12 months ago after entering the final table last in chips, but he is in much better shape this time around with 26 million – good for third. Newhouse is the first player since Dan Harrington in 2003 and 2004 but to put his efforts into some perspective, Harrington battled fields of 839 and 2,576 respectively while Newhouse has faced 6,352 and 6,683!

The other notable is Sweden’s Martin Jacobson who reached the final table of last year’s One Drop High Roller event and boasts career tournament earnings of well over US$4 million.

The nine remaining players will return to the Rio in Las Vegas on 10 November to find our newest WSOP world champion. The chip stacks of the 2014 November Nine are as follows:

  1. Jorryt van Hoof – 38,375,000
  2. Felix Stephensen – 32,775,000
  3. Mark Newhouse – 26,000,000
  4. Andoni Larrabe – 22,550,000
  5. Daniel Sindelar – 21,200,000
  6. Billy Pappaconstantinou – 17,500,000
  7. William Tonking – 15,050,000
  8. Martin Jacobson – 14,900,000
  9. Bruno Politano – 12,125,000
