The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event November Nine will reunite Feb. 8 to play against each other at Foxwoods Casino during its Mega Stack Challenge XIX. Never has the WSOP final-table players been reassembled for an event.
Foxwoods is offering a series of qualifying tournaments (until Feb. 3) to play in the reunion event, which will be a three-table tournament in the casino’s new tournament room.
“This will be a legendary reunion watched by the entire poker community,” said Bernard Lee, poker pro and spokesman for Foxwoods. “Not only will the November Nine meet at Foxwoods to resurrect memories of their last game, the players will also test their skills against the casino’s strongest poker players.”
The 2010 WSOP November Nine were Jonathan Duhamel (champion), John Racener (runner-up), Joseph Cheong, Filippo Candio, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, John Dolan, Jason Senti, Matt Jarvis and Soi (Cuong) Nguyen.
The November Nine also will host the Foxwoods Mega Stack Challenge XIX tournament series Feb. 4-13.
“We are thrilled to host these poker superstars at Foxwoods and are proud to be a part of such a historic event. We are pleased to be able to share this reunion of the 2010 November Nine with not only the Foxwoods players, but also the entire poker community,” director of poker operations Terry Chiaradio said.
