World Series of Poker Final Table 2011

We were down to the wire and Gambling911.com is here to bring you the World Series of Poker Final Table for November 2011 and just after 3 am PST, the Novemeber Nine had been determined.  Who are the November Nine?

Costa Rica's John Hewitt was the last to be eliminated so there will not be a Costa Rica representation at this year's final table. 

Anton Makievskyi – Ukraine’s representation in the 2011 WSOP. 

"I just don't believe everything that's happening now," said the young Ukrainian. "I understand that I may not have any other chances in life like this, but I don't feel it. I just play my game. I just push all-in when I need to push all-in."

Four Ukrainians have won bracelets at this year’s WSOP and Anton will be cashing out big even if he doesn’t win a bracelet.

Eoghan O'Dea – Ireland’s own.  Hopefully he will be able to continue the excitement from this past week’s Open Championship, won by Ireland’s own Darren Clarke. 

"When I was really young, it was definitely the bracelet," he said. "But now, it's about the money. It's a dream to win this event."

He has five cashes to date on the live poker circuit. 

Phil Collins – Not THAT Phil Collins.  "USCPhildo" has earned more than $3 million on the virtual felt.

"I think that everything I've done in my poker career has prepared me for this tournament," Collins said. "This is why everyone plays, it's what created the poker boom in the first place."

Pius Heinz – This 22-year-old comes to us from Germany.

I don't feel any pressure at all," said Heinz. "The field left is really strong, a lot of really good players left. My tournament went pretty smooth for the most part and I'm just happy to be here. Whatever happens, happens."

Badih Bounahra – From the USA.  This 49-year-old is actually representing Belize, where he runs a poker room.

“I think the big stacks are feeling the pressure" Badih said with a smile. "I am cool and calm."

Martin Staszko – This Czech knocked out the love birds David Sands and Erika Moutinho.

Ben Lamb – All eyes have been on Ben Lamb, who has been hanging atop the chip count for days now.  The 24-year-old is on fire at this year’s World Series of Poker, after winning one bracelet and coming in second in another event.  He has now taken the lead ahead of Phil Hellmuth to be named  2011 “World Series of Poker Player of the Year”.

Samuel Holden – He’s 22 and comes to us from the United Kingdom.

"November's the dream," Holden beamed. "All the messages I'm getting from back home, it's definitely getting pretty serious."

Matt Giannetti – This Las Vegas native has never scored a six-figure cash in live tournament play.  He had the lowest chip count at number 10 as of 12:30 am PST but managed to bounce back.
