WSOP History: Looking Back at the November (and October) Nines
No stage in poker stood as a bigger goal for a tournament player than the final table of the WSOP Main Event. For years, that meant going to sleep knowing you had the chance of a lifetime, to go down in poker history in the next few days as the cameras captured your every bet, raise and fold.
All of that changed in 2008.
The year after Jerry Yang's Main Event victory was broadcast to all on ESPN's standard tape delay, organizers made a decision to try to increase the excitement and anticipation around the final table: after the final nine was reached, play would be paused. At that point, everyone left would go home with 9th-place money and the players would reconvene a few months later to play out the final table on a short tape delay.
That lasted until 2016, and this is the history of the November (and October) Nines.

Tony "Panoramic" Dunst Looking For WSOP Bracelet #3
WPT Commentator Tony "Panoramic" Dunst has over $3.8 million in Hendon Mob recorded cashes to his credit, and with those million of dollars in earnings are a pair of WSOP Gold Bracelets, one of which he won in 2016 in the WSOP's Event #63: $1,000 No Limit Hold'em for $339,254 (which is actually just the fourth largest score of his career). The second bracelet was earned in last year's iteration of the WSOP Online Bracelet Series, in Event #21: $777 No Limit Hold'em 6-Max.
That event, which saw 1,361 entrants hit the virtual felt, saw Dunst hit the final table of six with a big chip lead, one he used to knock out the dangerous Jon "havuuuuuc" Turner and Krista "Pollux" Gifford in short order. Charles "ilosestackz" Phillips" and Alec "Tango_Bravo" Parslow fell next, and in heads-up play, James "paymycollege" Pace made a seven-high straight against Dunst with the stack sitting nearly even, but Dunst held a flush and left Pace with a single big blind. No chip and chair story came to fruition for Pace, and Dunst collected his second WSOP Gold Bracelet and $168,342 for the victory.
Dunst played a large slate of events in last year's events, and we'll be looking for him to be a frequent contender to add more WSOP hardware to his coffers during this summer's WSOP Online Bracelet Series.

Welcome to Event #7: $777 No-Limit Hold'em
It's gonna be a lucky day for someone, as today's Event #7: $777 No-Limit Hold'em will award another WSOP gold bracelet to one hold'em hopeful.
Players will start with 15,000 in tournament chips for their $777 buy-in, and blind levels are 15 minutes in length. Late registration is open for three hours and fifty-five minutes, and players who bust may re-enter twice during the late registration period.
Re-entries have a thirty-second-time limit, so players should make sure they have enough funds in their WSOP.com account prior to the tournament's start. Tournament tickets may not be used for re-entry.
This is a single-day event meaning the entire tournament will be played out online and the winner will take home a WSOP Gold Bracelet.
Last year, in Event #17: $777 No-Limit Hold'em, it was Pat "IchiiKawawa" Lyons who toppled a field of 1,382 entrants, earning his first WSOP gold bracelet along with $173,551. The final table included Jim "Bocaratone" Collopy (5th - $41,174), Jonathan "Art.Vandelay" Dokler (4th - $54,948), and runner-up Chris "NJ_GLive" Ginley (2nd - $107,478).
