Duhamel Bracelet 259x300
It all came down to this night. Jonathan Duhamel with a nearly 6 to 1 chip lead over John Racener. Personally, I predicted this heads-up battle before the November Nine and was looking forward to the event. Unfortunately, what we got was pretty much a one sided affair with Duhamel pretty much picking up pots at will.

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.
