Las Vegas, NV
In case you're just waking up, the November Nine kicked off on Saturday at noon and lasted until 2am or so (actually 3am if you consider the fact that we turned the clocks back for DST). When it was over, seven players were eliminated and only two remained... Jonathan Duhamel and John Racener.
Heads-Up Chip Counts:The Grinder took the chiplead at one point and it looked as though his momentum (along with having an overwhelming and boisterous support group) was going to propel him to the final two. Alas, the Grinder met his fate when he busted in 5th place. His exit secured the WSOP Player of the Year title for Frank Kasella.
Jonathan Duhamel - 188.95M
John Racener - 30.75M
2010 November Nine Final Table Payouts:Heads-up play resumes at 8pm PT on Monday. Doors to the Penn & Teller Theatre open at 7pm. The Hall of Fame ceremony (featuring class of 2010 inductees Dan Harrington and Erik Seidel) will begin at 7:30pm sharp. See ya then for semi-live updates.
