Main Event

Official November Nine Chip Counts and Seat Assignments
On November 9th, 2008, the following nine players will return to the felt with 21 minutes and 50 seconds left in level 33:

Dennis Phillips - 26,295,000
Craig Marquis - 10,210,000
Ylon Schwartz - 12,525,000
Scott Montgomery - 19,690,000
Darus Suharto - 12,520,000
David 'Chino' Rheem - 10,230,000
Ivan Demidov - 24,400,000
Kelly Kim - 2,620,000
Peter Eastgate - 18,375,000

This is a new thing where the WSOP is playing their final table in November (an almost 4 month intermission) to build up hype, and broadcast the event much closer to the release date of their television coverage, in an attempt to build up viewership.

For the record, blinds for level 33 are $120-000/$240,000 with a $30,000 chip ante. My guess Kelly Kim (the very short stack) should be the first to go, but really, this championship is anyone's to take.
