The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table, aka the November Nine, is under way and the action has been absolutely insane thus far.   Bruce Buffer kicked off action with his typical "Its Time!" introduction for "shuffle up and deal. "  Action was then soon underway. It did not take a long time for a monster pot to develop.

Soi Nguyen the admitted amateur at the table has not let the money or fame affect his life. He is still working his day job and even though he is the amateur he’s decided to not pursue coaching and has been talking scenarios with poker playing friends Nam Le and Tommy Le. *“The only time I’ve taken off of work was to play in a couple of local tournaments, Legends at the Bicycle Casino which I finished in 34th place and I played at a Bellagio event where I busted out the last level of the first day. ”* He know that he’s been shown on ESPN as the amateur as well and finds it flattering that they pitch him in that light and hope to influence and inspire others like Soi to play the WSOP.

The new face of Fein energy drink, John Racener, hasn’t been getting much sleep these days, but is it energy drink overload? I would probably guess the answer would be all the nerves, excitement, and build up surrounding the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table happening in less than 24 hours. *“I’m extremely excited, I don’t really feel nervous or anything because this is what I do. It’s just something that I’m used to doing, playing poker; obviously it’s the biggest stage I’ll ever be on. I’ve had visions and dreams about hands at the final table, I’m thinking about it 24/7.

The most recognizable face at the table without a doubt is Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi. We’ve known the Grinder for quite some time in the poker world but he’s had an exceptional 2010 World Series of Poker and is still in the running for WSOP Player of the Year. The Mizrachi brothers all cashed the Main Event and were a focus of the ESPN broadcast until one of the four brothers and the biggest name remaining actually had a chance to make the November Nine.   *“It was the Main Event so a lot of the coverage was on me and I just watched myself to see what I did right and wrong.

Its WSOP final table time! WOW 3 months flew fast by and now we are only days away from having a 2010 Main Event winner. I got a chance to talk to finalist Jason Senti who is short stacked and admittedly the underdog but we all know its poker and anything can happen. November Niner Jason Senti (pokerpages. com) In the last 3 months I’ve been playing some online poker, travelling home to Chicago, and staying as far away from Vegas as possible! Jason Senti, however, took advantage of the last 3 months by watching the ESPN coverage and discussing strategy with fellow poker friend Phil Galfond aka OMGCLAYAIKEN and several other high stakes and tournament players.

Voted 300x300
Tuesday was election day in the United States. If you were following twitter or listening to different poker personalities, they would have told you to vote for candidates that support poker. I am one of the few players that did not got with that form of thinking and actually voted for the Republican candidate in my district. The Poker Players Alliance actually supported the incumbent, but this is one time I could not vote for poker.
