Introducing The 2010 WSOP November Nine: Part II (Candio, Jarvis, Racener)

Introducing The 2010 WSOP November Nine: Part II (Candio, Jarvis, Racener)Following on from the last article, lets meet the next three candidates all vying for a place in WSOP history.
4. Filippo Candio (16.4 million) is a 26 year-old poker pro from the island of Sardinia in Italy. The Team PokerStars Pro member has been earning a living from the game since turning 18 and plays online under the name ‘Fcandio’.
He has also earned $222,206 fom live tournament cashes, his biggest score to date coming from the 2009 Campionato Italiano, San Remo, where he placed first for a $185,271 pay-day.
Commenting on his imminent date with destiny, Candio said: “I am very happy. I’m [ready] to be a November Niner with all my heart, with all of my techniques and with all of my skill. For me, I’m part of the history of poker, I’m the first Italian, the last European and the first Sardinian.”
5. Matthew Jarvis (16.7 million) is a 25 year-old business student from Canada, who decided to take time off from his studies to re-concentrate on his poker career.
It has proved to have been a pretty shrewd move as he has already guaranteed himself $811,823 for his 2010 WSOP Main Event appearance, as well as being now in a position to benefit from an influx of sponsorship and promotional deals.
Mostly an online player, live tournament cashes have accounted for $61,245 of his earnings and, as Jarvis explains: “I’m basically a full-time player…I’m confident going forward,. I think I’ve played pretty well and I’m feeling good. It’s amazing. It’s every poker player’s dream to make the November Nine. I’m stoked! Every thing’s good right now.”
6. John Racener (19.05 million) is a 24 year-old poker pro from Florida, with $1,153,499 in live tournament winnings. Racener has certainly shown himself to be a precocious talent in the game, regardless of his most recent WSOP final table appearance, and already has a 2007 Atlantic City WSOP Circuit Event title to his name, worth $379,392, as well as two other six figure wins to his credit.
Commenting on his WSOP chances, Racener said: “I’m very excited. This is my dream. I’m very happy. Once they look at my stats they’ll see how well I’ve done in the past. … I’ve already had a lot of phone calls, Facebook and text messages. I’m just going to go home and enjoy it with my mom and my sister.”
Meet the final three big stacks at the 2010 WSOP Main Event finalists, in the concluding article covering the celebrated “November Nine.”
