WSOP Main Event Final Table to be Live on ESPN
The WSOP 2014 Main Event final table will be played on November 10th and 11th, and over the course of those two days, no doubt via numerous twists and turns we'll find a new WSOP Champion, one who takes away a staggering $10 Million prize. Those two days play will be screened live from the Penn and Teller Theater at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas on ESPN, however in the build up the final two days, every Sunday you can watch how the whole of the Main Event unfolded from back in July. Each Sunday until November 9th ESPN will be showing highlights and big hands from the event, and giving you a look at how those initial 6,683 players were whittled down to the November Nine, with the live action taking over on the 10th.
The $10 Million guaranteed first place prize means that no matter what the outcome is, this will be the second largest winners prize ever paid at the WSOP Main Event and the remaining 8 players will each take a slice of the remaining $18,480,121. There are some great players ready to take their seats and Mark Newhouse will be one of them, and in doing so he'll be making a little WSOP history in becoming the first player to make back to back WSOP November Nine final tables, however he will of course be hoping to do a little better than last years 9th place. He'll be joined by Felix Stephensen from Oslo, Jorryt van Hoof from the Netherlands and the 22 year old Spanish player Andoni Larrabe who will be the youngest player at the table. Billy Pappas, the world foosball champion from Massachusetts is also in the mix, and quite astonishingly this is his first ever WSOP tournament. They'll be joined by William Tonking, another inexperienced player, Daniel Sindelar from Nebraska who has 17 WSOP cashes to his name, Martin Jacobson with over $1 Million in WSOP earnings and Bruno Politano from Brazil who will be taking his place with the smallest stack.
It's set to be a great finale and one that's sure to be watched around the globe due to the truly international makeup of the table. There can only be one WSOP 2014 Main Event winner and it's a tough one to call...will a relative newbie steal the show or will the title go to a more experienced player? We'll find out on November 11th.
