2010 November Nine Crib Sheet
November 5, 2021
So its Friday night, and tomorrow you’ve got a bunch of friends coming over for a World Series of Poker November Nine Final Table Party.  There will be drinking, poker and all sorts of wagering as you keep up with poker’s most prestigious final table, through online updates, live streaming coverage, and a slew of new PokerRoad Radio shows. 

It should all make for a great time, but there’s one small problem, you’re woefully ill prepared.  Damn it, you never did get around to watching the rest of those DVRed 2010 WSOP episodes did you, and now you don’t know your Cheongs from Cuongs, your Dolans from Duhamels, and are there really 3 Johns, a Joseph and a Jason?  How the hell are you suppose to keep it all straight, and still sound like the poker expert all your friends think you are?

Well no worries brother, we’ve got you covered, with a quick crib sheet on Saturday’s Main Event final table, sure to make almost anyone sound like some sort of expert.
