The most exciting final table in tournament poker, the November Nine, is approaching quickly. Anybody who has watched any poker event on television has certainly noticed the patches worn on the clothes of tournament players. These patches are generally worn due to sponsorship deals that the final nine players make with online poker rooms and other companies. This puts extra moneys in these players’ pockets. Recently, however, Harrah’s has chosen to enforce new rules concerning logos to be worn at the table.
Harrah’s will no longer allow one entity to put their patch on more than three players at the final table. This comes as really bad news for Full Tilt Poker. They have managed to sponsor seven of the final nine players at the final table, one being Michael Mizrachi. Full Tilt Poker must rip their patches off four players. It has been speculated that as some players get eliminated from the tournaments, Full Tilt Poker would be allowed to transfer badges to a remaining sponsored player. However, another WSOP rule will not allow a player to add a patch once filming has begun. Michael Mizrachi will obviously don the Full Tilt Poker logo with the two next biggest chips stacks being the most likely to be wearing the FTP patch.
Make sure you don’t miss the World Series of Poker’s November Nine, this weekend on November 6th at 12:00pm ET. All players at the table will be chasing poker’s most coveted prize, the WSOP Main Event bracelet, along with the $8,944,138 top prize. It will certainly be one of the most exciting final tables in ages!
