WSOP November Nine Bring-in

Share this
That's what happens in a poker game when one is playing a stud game, the bring-in starts the action.  In 7 Card Stud the low card is forced to open the action, in Razz and Hi-lo Regular, the high card is forced to start the action.  We just witnessed the bring-in of the WSOP November Nine - it was a slightly different format.  First the players were all seated on stage with their chips and friends and family ringing the isolated island of light and TV cameras that sets the stage of history being made one more time in the annals of WSOP Main Events.

Media was allowed on stage to photograph the players at the table.  Strangely, the media appears to be out in less force than last year. A few moments after the photography ended, the players were taken off the stage and then led in one by one with the proper introduction. Each player was escorted to his seat by a scantily clad hottie holding up a sign that announced the seat and the player's name.  Each player's entrance was marked to music the player had picked and to Jack Effel's enthusiastic introduction.

The players seated again at their chips, a few moments delay, and Bruce Buffer erupted with the mix of a martial arts announcer and a poker enthusiast giving the customary, "SHUFFLE UP AND DEAL!" in a much more elaborate and feverishly interjected emotional presentation than the words convey. After a few more moments delay, the cards were in the air and Mathew Jaris took down the first hand; always a good start because if you don't win the first one, you can't win them all, right?

Frank Kessela was introducted to the final table; a handshake and hello exchanged between Kassela and Michael "the grinder" Mizrachi.  If Mizrachi takes this event down, he will tie Kassella for the WSOP Player of the Year.  That's another nice little twist to this mega monumental event.  

With the Nine players all trying to become the next WSOP Champion - and shooting for the $8.94 Million in cash - and take home the coveted Gold Bracelet, let's take a step back and think about how each of them arrived at this point in their game.  They're all young.  The oldest player is Cuong 'Soi' Nguyen, 37, and the remainder of the table celebrate the final table at:

Jason Senti - 26
Joseph Cheong - 24
John Dolan - 24
John Duhamel - 23
Michael Mizrach - 29
Matthew Jarvis - 26
John Racener - 24
Filippo Candio - 26

One would have to believe the majority of these Nine players have cut their baby teeth playing online poker.  That's where you at home, that are not seated at the Final Table, need to pay attention.  You can be here!  You have many opportunities to take the poker world by storm.  You may live in Nowhere Alabama or OutToLunch Africa but if you have an internet connection, you can tune in and play your way up the ladder to win a seat to another seat to another seat.  Take the challenge, don't limit yourself to wishing you were, just do it.
