The 2009 World Series of Poker “November Nine” pull an all-ni

World Series of PokerPerhaps the Hour+ delay to start the final table was a harbinger of things to come: After 16 hours of play the competitors are still one elimination away from concluding play for the day.

Chip-Leader Darvin Moon seems to be feeling the effects of the marathon session more than the other remaining players –Joe Cada, and Antoine Saout. Just before the break Moon called ½ his chips with KJs, against an all-in re-raise by Eric Buchman (who held A5), only a king on the turn kept Moon from becoming the short-stack. The look on his face can only be described as, “let’s get this over with, win or lose.”

I’m sure all of the players had a bad night’s sleep on Friday, and were up early on Saturday full of anticipation. So, it’s quite likely all of the players have been up for over 24 hours –A standard Las Vegas occurrence. And no one is going to be more unaccustomed to that type of lifestyle than the amateur poker player Darvin Moon. The professional poker players have most likely experienced countless 20+ hour sessions in their time at the tables, so the effects will not be as pronounced as they are with Moon.
