Mike "Mouth123" Matusow moved all in from middle position for 88,481, Felix "madenspauwke" Vandeput raised from the small blind fold out the big blind.

Matusow would need some help as he had the {a-Spades}{2-Hearts} vs the {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

The board ran out the {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} and Matusow's deep run was over

Nicholas "Nickvee07" Verderamo raised to 68,000 from middle position. Michael "annie_r_u_ok" Trivett was next to act with a three-bet to 200,420. Pete "PeteChen" Chen went all in for 936,132 from the cutoff and action folded back to Verderamo, who got out of the way. Trivett made the call.

Pete "PeteChen" Chen: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Michael "annie_r_u_ok" Trivett: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

The flop of {10-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} gave Chen the outs for a straight, but the {6-Hearts} turn and {4-Diamonds} river did not come through and he was eliminated by Trivett in 18th place for $5,025.

WSOP History: Looking Back at the November (and October) Nines

2013 WSOP November Nine
2013 WSOP November Nine

No stage in poker stood as a bigger goal for a tournament player than the final table of the WSOP Main Event. For years, that meant going to sleep knowing you had the chance of a lifetime, to go down in poker history in the next few days as the cameras captured your every bet, raise and fold.

All of that changed in 2008.

The year after Jerry Yang's Main Event victory was broadcast to all on ESPN's standard tape delay, organizers made a decision to try to increase the excitement and anticipation around the final table: after the final nine was reached, play would be paused. At that point, everyone left would go home with 9th-place money and the players would reconvene a few months later to play out the final table on a short tape delay.

That lasted until 2016, and this is the history of the November (and October) Nines.
