The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event is beginning Monday, November 9pm at the Penn & Teller Theater inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. This year’s November Nine – the nine poker players chosen from six different nations – will vie for the $10 million first-place prize and the coveted gold bracelet. The final three will play on Tuesday, November 11, to decide the winner. (Don’t worry, each player is guaranteed at least $730,725.)
All nine players are white dudes, including: Billy Pappas (Lowell, MA), Felix Stephensen (Oslo, Norway), Jorryt van Hoof (The Netherlands), Mark Newhouse (Chapel Hill, NC), Andoni Larrabe (London), William Tonking (Flemington, NJ), Dan Sindelar (Omaha, NE), Martin Jacobson (Stockholm, Sweden), and Bruno Politano (Brazil). The only woman you’re going to see around the table is Canadian poker reporter Kara Scott. Lon McEachern and Norman Chad call the play. The World Series of Poker will air on ESPN 2, Monday and Tuesday, beginning at 8pm.
