When the 2011 WSOP Main Event came to an end many said that there wouldn't be a November Nine the following year. These "speculations" were confirmed the other day by WSOP on twitter.
Here are some WSOP's latest tweets:
-A few hints on WSOP schedule coming tomorrow...you won't find the November Nine returning.
-Another good change coming to WSOP in 2012...no off day during Main Event.
-The WSOP Main Event this year will be 3 days shorter without compromising structure at all.
-All days will play the standard 5 levels guaranteed...except potentially the last day. Start play at 12 noon, finish 12:40 am.
But even though November 9 has been removed from the Main Event, it doesn't mean that it won't be a delayed final table. Instead of being played in November, the final table will now be played on October 28th, with heads up play on Tuesday, October 30th.
The final table will once again take place at the Penn & Teller Theater at the Rio, and ESPN and ESPN2 will be there to film it so everyone can follow the action.
