Who’s the Greatest Nov. 9er? All 80 Players Ranked by Results

Share:

The November Nine experiment is over.

Earlier this month the WSOP announced that after nine years it was ditching the November Nine concept to play out the final table with a more reasonable two-day break.

Some would argue the November Nine lasted a little too long but it has given us some interesting stories over the years.

In total 80 players competed in the three-month delayed Sit & Go (that’s Mark Newhouse twice, natch) winning tens of millions.

For some players their November Nine experience was just a stepping stone to a bigger poker career while others were basically never heard from again.

We’re going to take a look at the most successful November Niners over its nine-year existance and what they accomplished when you take away their big Main Event score.

Ivey, Mizrachi Dominate All-Time Charts

It should come as no surprise that long-time pros like Phil Ivey and Michael Mizrachi utterly crush the overall earnings leaderboard, and that’s not even taking into account their Main Event scores.

Both Ivey and Mizrachi had accumulated millions before appearing in the WSOP final table and continued to generate millions more after their November Nine experiences.

There are more surprises, however, as you go down the chart.

Jonathan Duhamel has almost doubled his Main Event earnings.

For instance Jonathan Duhamel took down massive $8.9 million by winning the 2010 Main Event but has since nearly equaled that number on the international poker circuit.

On the other hand players like Craig Marquis and Steven Begleiter didn’t make much of a dent in the poker world.

There are plenty of stats you can extract from nearly a decade of the November Nine but we wanted to close in on a simple one: Take away the Main Event final table score and how much has each player earned playing tournament poker.

That’s what the following chart is all about. Separating the one-hit wonders from the all-time crushers.

There is, of course, one big asterisk in the chart and that’s Mark Newhouse.

Newhouse incredibly made the November Nine in both the 2013 AND 2014 Main Events.

For the sake of this chart we’re just counting his first Main Event score so he gets the benefit of adding his second final-table score to his overall earnings.

So without further ado, here’s the chart. All numbers are from WSOP.com and Hendon Mob:
