Duhamel, Senti days away from November Nine seats
For most people, you will simply need to look north and squint very hard to see the two planes that will carry two PokerStars players toward their destiny.
Quebec's Jonathan Duhamel and Minnesota's Jason Senti are headed to Las Vegas this weekend to join the 2010 World Series of Poker November Nine. In their sights sit a gold WSOP bracelet, millions of dollars, and the chance to be among names like Moneymaker, Raymer, Hachem, Eastgate, and Cada as world champions under the PokerStars flag.
As you're likely aware by the point, Duhamel holds the chip lead at this year's WSOP final table. Senti currently sits in ninth place among the November Nine. What remains to be seen is whether Senti can climb up from the bottom or Duhamel can go wire-to-wire.
As this is the PokerStars Blog's sixth WSOP final table and third November Nine, we thought it would be fun to spend the week focusing on Duhamel, Senti, the November Nine, and the final tables we've seen over the past few years.
If you are just tuning in after four-month walk in the woods, here's a bit of what you missed in the past week's run-up to the November Nine.
Coming tomorrow: Jason Senti, #9 in chips, #1 in optimism
