It’s Saturday, which makes it time again for another installment of “The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz.”
Last week we recognized Halloween with a holiday-themed edition of the quiz, diverging from our usual method of culling questions from the week’s Strategy articles here on PokerNews. This weekend brings another holiday of sorts for poker fans as tomorrow begins — finally! — the final table of the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. So again we thought we’d provide something timely with a “November Nine” edition of the quiz.
After waiting nearly four months, the nine survivors from the 6,420 who entered the $10,000 buy-in tournament this summer finally return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to play out the rest of the this year’s Main Event. There remains nearly $25 million of the prize pool left to be divided among these last nine players, with a handsome $7,683,346 prize sitting up top for the eventual champion.
The practice of delaying the WSOP Main Event final table began in 2008, making this the eighth year of the “November Nine-era.” Here are nine questions derived from the previous November Nine final tables. Getting at least seven correct out of the nine is enough for a passing grade, and if you happen to miss any you will get an explanation of the correct answer.
Test your poker knowledge and get ready for this year’s November Nine by reliving recent exciting WSOP Main Event finishes.
