Andoni Larrabe: 2014 WSOP Main Event November Nine Bio

Andoni Larrabe is looking to become the first Spanish player since Carlos Mortensen to win the WSOP Main Event.

Larrabe has had his share of success in the poker world with a first-place finish in a PCA $5k No-Limit Event in 2013 for a score of $218k. That result represents a large portion of his $341k live-tournament earnings.

Interestingly Larrabe beat online crusher Justin Bonomo to earn his PCA title although they did make a heads-up deal.

The Spaniard has already doubled his lifetime earnings just by making the November Nine and has locked up $730k, no matter where he finishes in November.

Larrabe actually played the controversial inaugural event of the International Stadiums Poker Tour at Wembley Stadium in 2013 and finished 263rd to earn a relatively minor cash of €755.

The young pro has already snagged a little piece of poker history as no Spanish player has ever made the November Nine in its current format.

Larrabe might not even be at the final table if it wasn’t for a much needed pair of pocket aces during the unofficial final table of 10 players. Larrabe was the short stack and doubled through Luis Velador.

It was was enough to catapult Larrabe to the 2014 November Nine.
