I think that´s the better way, that we can see the final table in July. Ok in the last years they mad a good promotion for the november nine, but the WSOP main event was in July. And now we can get all bracelets in the summer, like in the past

well I dont know how to feel about this... 4 months of wait was preaty long... but they should keep november niner title... Like FT to be played like week or two after they reached it... because to reach FT of this kind of tourney deserve a title!
When November Nine was first introduced, many of us thought it was a very good idea but then started to fed up about it because we find that to wait so long to know who will be crowed world champ is ridiculous... yes to wait one week or two to play the final table is good but not longer.

Not much of a change for the ones not participating there, besides the "season" change. Although for most of the poker players and enthusiasts, it will be moved on summer time which will be easier to watch and follow, than November.

I think that they have done the right thing in removing this and it will only improve the Main Event. I always thought it was very strange to have to wait 4 months to play the final table and i am glad they have seen sense

To me it is so strange this concept, why wait for 4 months to start playing again? Ol if some promotions needed you can wait for next week, weekend and this is it, no point for long wait, even in champions league you have to wait less than 1 month and it is already a lot.
