The World Series of Poker 2009 edition of the November Nine is set and it looks like there will be plenty of excitement when the final nine players return in November to play off for WSOP gold and the monster payout that comes with it. Leading the way is a self-employed logger named Darvin Moon with 60 million chips. Although Moon is an unknown he somehow managed to climb his way to the top of the chip counts.

Sitting in second place is live tournament veteran Eric Buchman with 34,800,000. He is followed by former Bear Stearns employee Steve Begleiter who has 29,885,000. Controversial CardPlayer Magazine publisher Jeff Shulman is in fourth place with 19,580,000. He is followed by the youngest player at the table, 21-year-old Joe Cada 13,215,000, Florida businessman Kevin Schaffel who has 12,390,000 and professional poker’s brightest star Phil Ivey. The Team Full Tilt Pro struggled on the final day of play but he has a stack to work with in November.

Rounding out the November Nine are French player Antoine Saout at 9,500,000 and the table’s shortstack, James Akenhead, who is on life support with 6,800,000.

When the WSOP returns to the Rio in November there will be plenty off attention on two players. In essence, the poker industry is praying that Phil Ivey wins the Main Event. Arguably the best player on the planet, this would be Ivey’s third bracelet win in 2009 and it would solidify what many have been saying since he first started playing in Atlantic City; The guy’s got crazy game.

There other media lightening rod is Card Player Magazine publisher Jeff Shulman. Having made a previous WSOP Main Event final table, Shulman knows how to play the game. Shulman has claimed that he won’t wear the WSOP bracelet should he win and that he would retire from playing poker if he claimed the top spot. Apparently Shulman’s beef with the WSOP lies in the fact that Card Player had once lost the rights to be the official media outlet for the WSOP and he believes that the WSOP has made coverage impossible for other outlets.
