WSOP 2015 Final Table: Meet This Year’s November Nine (Pt3)July 17, 2015 1:28 pm
Following on from part 2, here are the last three members of the 2015 November Nine:
Josh Beckley (USA): 11,800,000 (29bb)
Joshua Beckley, 24, is a New Jersey poker pro with $219,526 in live tournament cashes to his credit, and a further $37,698 won online under the screen name “asdf26”. Beckley has also had five WSOP cashes throughout his career, all coming at this year’s Series, while his biggest tournament score to date came after winning the 2014 Parx Casino Big Stax VII $1,500 Event for $98,348.
Patrick Chan (USA): 6,225,000 (16bb)
Patrick Chan, 26, originally started his poker career as an online multi-table tournament player, but after Black Friday transitioned to live poker where he has since amassed $524,263 in earnings. Prior to the 2015 WSOP Main Event, the Brookly tournament grinder’s biggest score was in 2012 after finishing the $2,500 Borgata Fall Poker Open Championship in 3rd for $131,895.
Federico Butteroni (Italy): 6,200,000 (15.5bb)
Federico Butteroni, 25, (photo) hails from Italy and had $103,006 in winnings before securing a place as a November Niner, much of which was amassed in June after winning the $235 No Limit Hold’em 3PM for $31,756, and finishing the WSOP $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Monster Stack event in 20th for $45,633. Butteroni has now locked up a further $1,001,020 as a November Niner, but will have a task ahead of him if he wants to improve on that figure, as he will start the final table as the short-stack on just 15.5bbs.
Finally, the 2015 WSOP Main Event final table will resume on Sunday, November 8th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, and will take place over three days, playing down to four players on Day 1, then two player on Day 2, before deciding the ultimate champion on a final Day 3.
