The 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event featured blowups, love stories, and one of the worst beats in poker history. Today on PokerGO marks the release of the episodes of the November Nine final table with infinite storylines in play.
Six different nations represent the final nine with Germany, Belize, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, and England joining their competitors from the United States. The Czech of the group, Martin Staszko, and his checked-shirt, opens the final table as chip leader.
The action heats up right away when Phil Collins and Ben Lamb get involved with their final table competitors. Both Collins and Lamb were among the chip leaders for the majority of the Main Event and exercise the ability to put pressure on their opponents.
One player who doesn’t back down from the challenge is Pius Heinz. The German savant starts the final table in the lower tier of the chip counts but rises to the top in no time.
Heinz dispatches Anton Makiievskyi in eighth place and runs up his stack from there.
Three-handed play is the most exciting portion of the final table. Lamb, Staszko, and Heinz are all ready to gamble, especially Lamb. In a pot to effectively win the tournament, Lamb and Staszko gamble in a flip worth millions of dollars. Ben Lamb runs good but can he win the most important flip of his life?
Other exciting final table moments come from all-in hands featuring Matt Giannetti and Collins. Both are eliminated in heartbreaking fashion while simultaneously winning life-changing money.
