We are back with Part Two of ‘Getting To Know The ‘November Nine’, where we can all learn a little bit more about the players that will be taking part in the world famous World Series of Poker Main Event final table later this year.
In Part One we spoke about the three biggest stacks on the table and this time we will be letting you in on some more information about the three middle stacks that will be fighting for the prestigious Main Event title.
Andoni Larrabe – 22,550,000
Going into the WSOP Main Event Final Table in fourth place in the chip counts is Spanish professional player Andoni Larrabe. Like many of the other players at the table, Larrabe is more noted for his online successes. He has won two PokerStars SCOOP titles and has now tried to make a name for himself on the live circuit.
Prior to this final table appearance he has won $341,266 from live tournaments with the majority of that coming from a $5k side event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for a payout of $218,710. This is the second time he has ventured over for the World Series of Poker after trying his luck in a few events last year. He took home a combined $20,000 last year after scores in three events.
Dan Sindelar – 21,200,000
The Nebrasken professional player Dan Sindelar is another that is more accustomed to the cash game scene, yet he does enjoy taking part in some tournaments too. The 30 year old who now lives in Las Vegas has taken part in the last six WSOP Main Events without even managing to cash, so this final table appearance will certainly make up for that.
In total he has earned around $530k from tournaments throughout his career, an amount that is going to be at least more than doubled from this final table appearance.
William Pappaconstantinou – 17,500,000
One player that already has won a title of sorts before the final table has started is William Pappaconstantinou who wins the title for the longest name at the WSOP Final table and possibly in the history of all WSOP Main Event final tables. Luckily he prefers to be called “Billy Pappas” which will surely make commentators jobs all that easier come November.
He is also the only player at the table who is an amateur despite actually winning more than $100k from tournament poker throughout his lifetime.
