Two-time bracelet winner Cliff "JohnnyBax"Josephy leads 2016 November Nine final.

After a grueling 10 days, the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event is now down to final nine players. The remaining players will return to the Rio on Oct. 30, 2016, to play down to a new world champion of poker, who will earn $8 million.

Cliff "JohnnyBax"Josephy will have a commanding chip lead (74,6 million in chips) when the November Nine final table resumes.

Josephy is likely the most experienced player at the final table as well, having won already two WSOP gold bracelets, most recently from a shootout victory in 2013. According to PocketFives, Josephy has over $4 million in online tournament cashes, in addition to his $2,6 million live tournament cashes.

Josephy is followed by players like Qui Nguyen, Gordon Vayo and Vojtech "Vojta_R" Ruzicka. All of them have now secured at least $1,000,000 for making it this far, and will now go on a three and a half month hiatus before the final table resumes in late October.

Players like Jared "harrington25" Bleznick (16th, $338,288), Tom Marchese (14th, $427,930) and James "Andy McLEOD" Obst (13th, $427,930) came agonisingly close this year to reach the November Nine final table, but were eventually eliminated just few spots away.
