WSOP November 9 – Meet the Players Part 2

By Scott Carlson, Rakeback.com Staff Reporter

WSOP LogoIn part two of our three part series we will let you know about seats 4-6 for the November 9. If you missed part one, check it out here.

The Players (continued):

Seat 4 –  Jonathan Duhamel
Jonathan Duhamel November 9
Starting Chip Count – 65,975,000 (132 bb)
Hometown: Boucherville, Quebec, Canada
Occupation: Professional Poker Player
Final Table Sponsorship: PokerStars
Career Tournament Earnings: $913,383
Bodog Odds of Winning: 5/2

The chip leader heading into the final table garnered a lot of negativity with his play leading up to the final table. Duhamel won the hand of the tournament when he busted Matt Affleck when his pocket jacks rivered a straight against Affleck’s pocket aces. To say that Duhamel has the Jesus seat at the final table is a massive understatement. With the second and third place stacks both to his immediate left it will be interesting to see how he plays in the first few orbits of the final table. He is also looking to become the first Canadian to win the main event. Duhamel’s biggest cash to date has been a 10th place finish for $54,904 in the EPT Prague main event.

Seat 5 –  Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mizrachi
Michael Mizrachi November 9
Starting Chip Count – 14,450,000 (29 bb)
Hometown: Miami, FL
Occupation: Professional Poker Player
Final Table Sponsorship: Full Tilt
Career Tournament Earnings: $9,613,917
Bodog Odds of Winning: 6/1

Mizrachi certainly enters the final table with the biggest resume of the remaining players. With a win Mizrachi would tie Frank Kasella for the WSOP Player of the Year. Mizrachi arguably had the one of the greatest performances in WSOP history this year. He final tabled five $10k events including the main event this summer and earned his first career WSOP bracelet in the $50k Players Championship. If he can get a double-up in the early going he could very well go on to capture the event.

Seat 6 –  Matt Jarvis
Matt Jarvis November 9
Starting Chip Count – 16,700,000 (33 bb)
Hometown: Surrey, British Columbia, Canada
Occupation: Professional Poker Player
Final Table Sponsorship: Full Tilt
Career Tournament Earnings: $1,030,335
Bodog Odds of Winning: 10/1

Jarvis, along with Duhamel, looks to become the first Canadian to win the main event. Jarvis has had some success in the break before the final table by winning two events. He took down the $5k Canadian Open Poker Championship heads-up event for $97,026. He also won a $1k preliminary event at the WPT Festa al Lago last month for $71,895. Jarvis could be one of the dark horses at the final table.
