Joseph Cheong was the first causality of the November Niners, leaving him out of contention to collect the prize money or the $1000 last longer between the nine. Mike Mizarchi, Matt Jarvis, Jonathan Duhamel and John Dolan all remain with healthy chips.
Should one of them win the event, aside from the $15,000 put in the prize pool by Foxwoods World Poker Room, the 9 have also agreed to pay one of their own $5000 out of their pockets if any one of the group wins. 2nd place, same terms, will fetch $2000.
Players started with $10,000 in tournament chips and 30 minute blind levels. Almost 4 hours have elapsed with the current level at 300/600 with a 75 ante. The average chip count is now about $16,700.
The payouts for the $15,000 are as follows: 1st. $5000 2nd. $3000 3rd. $2000 4th-6th $1000 7th-10th $500. Great odds to make some money and an awesome poker experience for all involved!
