For the first time ever, the entire final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event will be appearing at the same event, and the casino that was able to pull off this achievement is none other than Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut.

The “reunion” will take place on February 8, 2011 during the Foxwoods Mega Stack Challenge XIX tournament series and will feature a 27-man Sit & Go poker tournament with the 18 qualifiers from Foxwoods in addition to the 9 WSOP Main Event final table players: WSOP ME Champ Jonathan Duhamel, Runner-up John Racener, Joseph Cheong, Filippo Candio, Mike “The Grinder” Mizrachi, John Dolan, Jason Senti, Matt Jarvis, and Soi Nguyen.

In a press release, Foxwoods Spokesman Bernard Lee was overjoyed with the announcement, saying, “This will be a legendary reunion watched by the entire poker community. Not only will the November Nine meet at Foxwoods to resurrect memories of their last game, the players will also test their skills against the casino’s strongest poker players.”

The November Nine members will also be hosting other tournaments at the Mega Stacks Challenge XIX which begins on February 4, 2011 and runs through February 13, 2011. In all there will be six tournaments played at the Mega Stacks Challenge in addition to the special November Nine Sit & Go, over the nine days of the tournament series.
