WSOP 2013 Final Table: Who Are This Year's November Nine (Pt2)

WSOP 2013 Final Table: Who Are This Year's November Nine (Pt2)
Following part 1, here are the remaining four players which make up  the 2013 November Nine:
Sylvain Loosli (19.6m): The 26 year old Frenchman may have just $3,198 in tournament cashes to his name, but that is because he is a self-dubbed “online poker cash game specialist” who plays at levels of up to $25/$50. He is also the first French player to make the Main Event final table since Antoine Saout finished 3rd ($3,479,670) in 2009, a record Loosli is determined to surpass, explaining:
“I’m very proud to represent my country. I will do my best to prove that French players can be as good as American ones..[For the next four months] I’m planning on going on vacation and playing more live tournaments to keep improving my [live reads], plus work with some coaches.”
Michiel Brummelhuis (11.2m): The 32 year-old Dutch pro is the first player from his country to reach a WSOP Main Event final table and with a minimum cash of $733,224 already locked-up also claims Holland’s biggest ever WSOP cash. As well as live results which include victory in 2008 at the €1k Master Classics of Poker for €68,310, Brummelhuis has enjoyed great success online, with his biggest score coming after taking down a $1k WCOOP event on PokerStars for $144k.
According to Remko Rinkema from PokerListings: “He’s one of the nicest, most well-respected tournament players and down-to-earth players I’ve ever had the chance to cover. He’s been winning online tournaments since 2007 and was always good friends with Lex Veldhuis.”
Mark Newhouse (7.3m): The 28 year-old has over $2 million in tournament cashes and became a high profile young gun from the post-Moneymaker era after winning the 2006 WPT Borgata Poker Open for $1.5 million. Unfortunately, soon after Newhouse said he fell off the rail, explaining: “[I] sort of lost my mind and set it on fire. After the win, I moved into the Commerce, and I made a lot of very poor decisions over the next couple of years.”
However, since then Newhouse said he has got his game back on track and in 2011 he finished 82nd in the Main Event for $47,107. Newhouse is now looking forward to November’s final table, and commented: “Anyone who knows me and who plays poker with me on a regular basis knows I’m not a patient person, but there’s so much on the line, you just have to do it sometimes.”
David Benefield (6.3m): The 27 year-old Texan is a well-regarded high  stakes poker pro and instructor with $633,243 in live earnings to go with his over $5 million in winnings playing online. Recently, Benefield branched out from poker to study Chinese and Political Studies, and has also been active in Macau’s Big Game. He will also have to use all his considerable poker skills if he is to overcome being the short stack at November’s final table.
The November Nine will return to the Rio on November 4th and 5th, with the payout structure as follows:
1. $8,359,531
2. $5,173,170
3. $3,727,023
4. $2,791,982
5. $2,106,526
6. $1,600,792
7. $1,225,224
8. $944,593
9. $733,224
