The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table members have been proving to be one of the most skilled final tables in the modern era of the WSOP –from 2003 on—with a number of the 2010 November Nine having performed admirably in both online poker and live tournaments since the final table.

We all know about Mike Mizrachi, and John Racener’s poker skills, but since the WSOP Final Table Jason Senti took down the Minnesota State Poker Championship; Soi Nguyen won an FTOPS Event –which he hosted; John Dolan finished second at a side event at the World Poker Finals at Foxwoods; and Joseph Cheong has finished 2nd at the High-Roller turbo at the EPT London, 2nd in a side event at the WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic, and won a $5k tournament at the WPT Festa al Lago.

The most recent November Niner to make a splash in a major tournament is Matthew Jarvis who just captured the UBOC, Event #16, a $2,000 High-Roller NLHE tournament. Jarvis, who plays at UB Poker under the screen-name ‘JARFISH’, was involved in a 4-way deal at the end of the tournament, guaranteeing him at least $107,900 –Jarvis would go on to win the tournament, as he Tweeted: “Just made a deal 4 handed in the UBOC16 2k high roller event for $107,900. Now playing it out for $15k and the title :) JARFISH!!!” followed by another Tweet stating: “Ended up shipping it after deal was made 123k baby.”
