2017 WSOP Main Event: Michael Ruane and Other November Niners Making Deep Runs


It’s day 5 of the 2017 World Series of Poker main event and at the dinner break there are now only 143 players remaining from the 7,221 that entered. Incredibly, among those still in with a shot at the title are five previous members of the November Nine, including Antoine Saout, JP Kelly, Kenny Hallaert, Ben Lamb, Jacob Balsiger and Michael Ruane, who finished fourth in this event in 2016 for more than $2.5 million. Card Player TV caught up Ruane on the dinner break to learn more about being back at the Rio and deep in the main event less than a year later and also to ask him about the end of the November Nine era.
