Fernando Pons: 2016 WSOP November Nine Bio | World Series of Poker

Spaniard Fernando Pons may be the shortest stack at the 2016 WSOP Main Event final table but he’s already earned one hell of a return on his investment.

Pons qualified for the 2016 WSOP Main Event through a €30 satellite on 888poker. He’s already guaranteed at least $1m just for making the final table so it’s safe to say he’s happy with how things have gone in the tournament.

Incredibly, the 2016 WSOP Main Event was the first time that Pons had ever played a WSOP event.

He arrived in Las Vegas on July 10th and only planned on staying five days. Pons ended up going clothes shopping every day for something to wear when it got the later portion of the Main Event.

Primarily an online poker player Pons is married and has one one child, a four-year old girl. He works full-time as an account executive for a retail chain and is only a part-time poker hobbyist.

Pons is the first Spanish player since Andoni Larrabe in 2014 to make the WSOP Main Event final table. Larrabe finished 6th so Pons will have some work to do if he wants to pass his country man.
