Watch the 2013 WSOP Main Event Final Table Right Here!
One of these nine is our next world champ.
For poker fans around the world, today is the day we've all been waiting for.
Well, technically, tomorrow is. But today marks the start of the playdown to poker's next world champion.
The much-scrutinized November Nine will reconvene at the Rio in Las Vegas to begin the quest for the $8.3 million first-place prize and esteemed privilege of being poker's de facto ambassador for the year.
Chip leader JC Tran has the edge heading in but as we've seen time and again, it's anyone's game -- including short stack David Benefield's.
All that's left now is the battle and, of course, the watching. Here's when/how you can tune in:
