Last night, the 2012 WSOP Main Event played down to 9; the Nine players that will return October 28th to play down to one and the coveted bracelet.
Eight of the October Nine are from the USA, and one player, Koroknai, is from Hungary.
Youngest player is 21. Oldest is 56. Average age of players is 31 yrs. old.
Largest stack is 43.9M. Smallest is 9.8M. Average stack is just about 22M.
Returning in October are:
Sadly, neither of the women made it. There were two females, Gaelle Baumann and Elisabeth Hille, still vying for the final table when play was down to 18. Through Twitter, I saw that quite a few male and female spectators were rooting for at least one to make the final table – and Gaelle Baumann almost did. Her A 9 ran into Koroknai’s A J and neither improved. Gaelle had had a notable stack for several days.
Interestingly, both women bubbled; Elisabeth went out in 11th and just missed the final table of 10 for last night’s play, and Gaelle went out right after to bring the number of players to 9 – and the October Nine were set.
