Marc E. McLaughlin Makes it Through; Canada Will Be Represented in 2013 WSOP November Nine

Marc-E.-McLaughlin-2013-November-NineThe 3rd times the charm they say and it that certainly seems to hold true for Marc E. McLaughlin whom after finishing in the Top 100 players in two prior World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Events can now proudly add the accomplishment of making the November Nine.
The online pro from Quebec will be sitting 3rd in chips when play resumes to crown a winner on November 4th & 5th, 2013.
With recent past World Champions Greg Merson and Jonathan Duhamel tweeting their support for “@Go_Irish_Go”, aka Marc E. McLaughlin, along with many other familiar faces on the poker circuit, you can bet the French Canadian will be back in the fall with one of the rowdiest rails in Main Event history.
The final table should be one of the most fun and followed in years, with 5 countries represented as follows:
Seat 7: JC Tran – USA – 38,000,000
Seat 5: Amir Lehavot – Israel – 29,700,000
Seat 6: Marc McLaughlin – Canada – 26,525,000
Seat 9: Jay Farber – USA – 25,975,000
Seat 4: Ryan Riess – USA – 25,875,000
Seat 1: Sylvain Loosli – France – 19,600,000
Seat 2: Michiel Brummelhuis – Netherlands – 11,275,000
Seat 3: Mark Newhouse – USA – 7,350,000
Seat 8: David Benefield – USA – 6,375,000
Here are the payouts still up for grabs when play resumes in November:
1st – $8,359,531
2nd – $5,173,170
3rd – $3,727,023
4th – $2,791,983
5th – $2,106,526
6th – $1,600,792
7th – $1,225,224
8th – $944,593
9th – $733,224
Two other Canadians made Day 7, but unfortunately both were eliminated a bit shy of the goal; Halifax’s Alex “rumnchess” Livingston took 13th for better than $450,000, while Burnaby’s Jason Mann placed 25th of 6352 for a little more than $285,000.
We’ll look at profiled of the entire final table soon, but for now, a big congratulations to Marc & all those who cashed!

Any of the micro-stakes HORSE games will play online MTTS and SNGs. Live, Tournaments and Satellites up to $550. I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk. Writing wise, currently a regular contributor to Poker Pro Canada, like to write profiles, previews and recaps the most. formally wrote for Canadian Poker Player Canada. My Poker Blogs have been featured on CardPlayer Social and SpadeClub as "Recommended" or in newsletters on several occasions and Pokerweblogs as "Blog of the Month". Past projects included organizing and promoting major events with the Canadian Poker Tour, introducing Big Slick Poker Tour to Southern Alberta and directing events and finals.


  1. I believe the WSOP and it’s sponsors would be better served if they made 9th place at least $1 Mil…. Good thing they have a big name pro in it to keep attention high for the final table.

  2. Congratulations Marc-Etienne. With a nice cheerleader like Laurence you will have an advantage at the final table 😉
    Best of luck.
