With only 5 days left to go before the 2009 World Series of Poker final table kicks off, we will put a lot of our energy and focus on writing about the November 9 finalists and other relevant information that might be of interest. First out is chip leader Darvin Moon.
Darvin Moon - The working class hero
Darvin Moon, 45, lives in Oakland, Maryland and work as a logger. He won his ticket to the Main Event through a satellite at a casino in West Virginia. But even though he was going to play the main event, he didn't put his hopes up high, and he could never ever imagine in his wildest fantasies that he would make it this far in the tournament. He was wrong as the whole cards and the flops were the best possible for him from start until the final table. Now he has a massive chip lead and is the big favorite to take home the main event.
-"With the cards I'm getting it's easy. The first hand I sat down I had pocket kings and rivered trips. Three hands later I had pocket aces and flopped trips. How hard is it?"; Moon said in an interview earlier this year.
Davin Moon is not a professional poker player like many of the other November 9 finalists, and he has no interest in getting signed either. Instead he he wants to keep poker as a hobby and continue he's day time work in the woods even though he's guaranteed at least $1 million dollars and can win up to $8.5 million! Darvin Moon is a true working class hero who many people will hope for on Saturday!
