Scott Montgomery's $1k No-Limit Hold'em victory continued a remarkable trend of success at the 2010 WSOP for former November Niners.
The WSOP switched over to the November Nine format for the $10k Main Event final table in 2008 and again in 2009, and so far the 2010 WSOP has been a showcase for a trio of former November Niners.
Here's a look at what some of these players have been doing since making the Main Event final table; this list includes both the 2008 and 2009 November Nine:
PHIL IVEY (2009) - What else can be said about the eight-time bracelet winner?
Ivey was already considered the greatest player in the game before dominating the 2009 WSOP with two bracelet wins, and all eyes were on Ivey when he capped off his year with a November Nine run.
In case anyone forgot how sick Ivey really is, the Full Tilt icon added his eighth WSOP bracelet in 2010, taking down the $3k H.O.R.S.E. event.
ERIC BUCHMAN (2009) - After placing fourth in the 2009 Main Event, 29-year-old Eric Buchman wasted no time in continuing his dominance at the 2010 WSOP.
Still feeling the disappointment from not placing higher in his November Nine appearance, Buchman returned determined to win his first WSOP bracelet.
He did just that, taking down the $2k Limit Hold'em event and adding $203,607 to his bankroll.
SCOTT MONTGOMERY (2008) - Like Buchman, Montgomery became a millionaire with his run to the November Nine.
The Canadian pro added the most coveted prize of all to his resume at the 2010 WSOP, taking the bracelet in $1k No-Limit Hold'em.
Montgomery's win marked the third bracelet win for former November Niners at the 2010 WSOP.
DARVIN MOON (2009) - So maybe our favorite logger from Maryland doesn't quite belong on this list, as we haven't seen any sign of Moon at the Rio for the 2010 WSOP.
Moon is still in the house, though, holding his trademark logging ax on some of the WSOP "I'M A PLAYER" posters throughout the Rio's main casino.
He's definitely a fan favorite, even in absentia. There's also the giant mural of Moon vs. Joe Cada at the 2009 Main Event final table, adorning one of the walls of the WSOP memorabilia gallery.
We'll be the first to let you know when Moon makes his rockstar return to the WSOP.
