2008 WSOP Main Event Final Hand

To generate more excitement for the World Series of Poker Main Event’s final table, the tournament was put on hold when Dean Hamrick busted out in tenth place. The remaining players, dubbed the November Nine, would do interviews, gather sponsorships, and even play more poker, while ESPN aired weekly broadcasts of the WSOP leading up to the final table. The delay was a success, and the November Nine has become the standard, even in years when the action actually resumed in October.

Eastgate became the youngest WSOP Main Event winner at 22 but officially retired from being a full-time poker pro in July 2010. The Dane continues to play occasionally, including a fourth place finish in a 2012 WSOP $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em event for $209,111.

During Demidov’s break, the Russian reached the final table of the WSOP Europe Main Event, finishing third for $608,995.
