2014 WSOP November Nine Rundown

Written by Pino | Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Despite the overwhelming participation of US players, and bracelet winners in fact, at this year’s World Series of Poker, the final table of the main event represents a colorful array of nations that encompasses six different countries, including a first-time Brazilian November Niner. The 45th annual WSOP may be complete, save the last event, but the buzz will continue on until only one champion remains. This year’s winner will win the $10 million top prize and the other eight players will divvy up the remaining $18+ million prize pool after the final table is played out this November 10th in Las vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

The 2014 WSOP Main Event attracted a field of 6,683 players representing 87 countries around the world. The final nine embodies Brazil, Norway, Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, and of course, the US, and nine players age 31 and younger.

In Seat 1 is Billy Pappaconsataninou, who may quite possibly have the longest last name of any November Niner to date. Twenty-nine-year-old “Billy Pappas” hails from Lowell, Massachusetts and is a professional foosball player and world foosball champion. This was his first time playing in the Main Event and his first time playing in any WSOP event for that matter. He has a mere $16,379 in live poker tournament winnings, most of which came from one eighth-place finish at the 2010 World Poker Finals, for which he was paid $15,341. But like many who succeed at poker, Pappas has deep-seeded experience in long hours of competition that require immaculate focus and attention, which he gained from playing pro foosball. He took a short break from a European foosball tournament circuit to play in the Main Event and will return to Europe for more foosball later this month. To his credit, Pappas is a five-time USA foosball champion and is recognized worldwide as a serious foosball contender. He now hopes to add poker World Champion to his resume. He will sit down at the November Nine Main Event table with 17,500,000 in chips.

Felix Stephensen is Seat 2 with 32,775,000 chips at the 2014 WSOP Main Event final table. Originally from Oslo, Norway, 23-year-old Stephensen now resides in London, England. While this was the only event he partook in this year, he has participated in the WSOP last year, but did not cash. Stephensen has $22,118 in live career poker earnings. His biggest cash thus far was a 12th-place finish in the 2009 Norwegian Championships held in Nottingham, UK.

In Seat 3 is Jorryt van Hoof with 38,375,000 in chips. The 31-year-old chip leader (holding 19.1% of the chips in play) follows last year’s Michiel Brummelhuis at the final table, also from the Netherlands. Hailing from Eindhoven, van Hoof has three prior WSOP cashes and almost $28K in WSOP winnings. His career poker earnings total $3528,580, but he hasn’t cashed in the WSOP this year, with the Main Event being only his second event to participate in during the 2014 WSOP.

Mark Newhouse finds himself in Seat 4 of the November Nine and becomes the first player since the inception of the November Nine format in 2008 to make the final table of the WSOP Main Event two consecutive years in a row. Last year, Newhouse cashed in 9th place and earned more than $733K for his efforts. Already guaranteed at least $730K, many believe he will go even further this year with 26,000,000 chips. Before the 2008 November Nine format went into play, Dan Harrington was the previous player to make back to back final table appearances in the 2003 series and the 2004 series. According to WSOP.com, the player pool in the 2003 main event that Harrington appeared in was a mere 839, while the 2004 event drew in 2,576, which totals 3,410 in all that he outlasted. On the other hand, 29-year-old Newhouse has collectively bested 13,029 over the past two years’ Main Event tournaments. Originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Newhouse has a total of $906,093 in career earnings, including eight WSOP cashes. He entered 17 events this year, but the Main Event would be his first to cash. Now residing in Las Vegas, Newhouse is a former Appalachian State student. He has played in the WSOP Main Event every year since 2006. His total poker earnings for live wins totals $2,776,172.

In Seat 5 we see 22-year-old Andoni Larrabe, with 22,550,000 chips. Originally from Spain, Larrabe now lives in England and represents the youngest player still in the tournament. He is also the first Spaniard to make the final table of the WSOP Main Event since 2001 when Carlos Mortensen won the Main Event. Larrabe, now a poker pro, studied at San Viato in Spain and has more than $20K in WSOP career earnings across three cashes. He also won a $218K-paycheck for a first-place finish in the Bahamas last year. His total career earnings amass more than $341K, which is not bad for his age. The Main Event was his sixth event this series, but is the only one he will get paid for playing in. He also participated in last year’s Main Event.

Twenty-seven-year-old William Tonking from Flemington, New Jersey will sit in Seat 6 with 15,050,000 in chips. At the onset of this year’s WSOP, Tonking only had $13,421 in career poker earnings WSOP events, which he earned in three previous WSOP cashes. This was his first Main Event cash, though he did participate in 2008 and last year. He cashed previously this year, as well, finishing 77th in Event #58. His live totals for career wins equal more than $93K. He is a former student of the University of South Carolina and is currently a professional online poker player.

Daniel Sindelar from Columbus, Nebraska will start the final table with 21,200,000 in chips in Seat 7. With 17 prior WSOP cashes, this 30-year-old pro poker player participated in 19 WSOP events this year, four of which he cashed in. This experience gives him a leg up on some of the other players who have less WSOP experience under their belts. He has more than $227K in WSOP earnings and more than $527K in career earnings. Sindelar is also an avid golfer and has participated in the WSOP Main Event for the past six years, though this will be his first time to cash.

Martin Jacobson is the player in Seat 8 with 14,900,000 in chips. He is the only November Niner with more than $1 million in WSOP cashes behind him. He has cashed in 15 WSOP events for a total of $1.2+ million in WSOP earnings. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, but now a resident of London, UK, Jacobson is 27 years old and finished in an impressive 6th place in last year’s $111,111 One Drop High Roller Event, for which he was paid $807,427. The Main Event is his 27th event this year and will be his third to cash in. His worldwide career tournament totals equal more than $4.8 million, making him the highest live poker earner at the final table. Jacobson is the first Swede to grace the final table since 2006 when eighth-place finisher Erik Friberg won just under $2 million. A 5th-place or higher finish for Jacobson would result in a record high earner for Swedish players at the WSOP Main Event.

Finally, in Seat 9 is the first-ever Brazilian to make the WSOP Main Event final table, 31-year-old Bruno Politano. He will start the last leg of this year’s series with the smallest chip stack valued at 12,125,000. He is a poker hobbyist and a professional administrator who has cashed in three of 10 events this year, including the Main Event. Originally hailing from Sao Paolo, he has won more than $110K in career poker winnings, though he was never cashed in the WSOP Main Event.
