Jorryt Van Hoof, Martin Jacobson and Felix Stephensen Set To Compete For Title.After 244 hands spanning 12 hours of play, the 2014 World Series of Poker is now down to the final three competitors.
The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event was back in action on Monday from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The final nine players — appropriately named the November Nine — returned to action with Jorryt van Hoof in the lead. The plan was to play down until the final three competitors were reached, and that’s just what happened in what was a remarkable day of poker.
Coming into the final table, all eyes were on Mark Newhouse — the man who had successfully reached the final table of the Main Event in back-to-back years. Newhouse finished in ninth place last year, and he had high hopes of finishing much higher this time around given that he entered third in chips with a very healthy stack. Unfortunately for him, fate would have it another way.

Several hours and countless orbits around the table went by without an elimination. In fact, this year proved to be the longest time since the inception of the November Nine that play went without an all in and call. But then, on Hand #56, that all changed.
Leading the way is Dutch pro Jorryt Van Hoof, who steamrolled his opponents for most of the night en route to amassing a stack of 89,625,000. He’ll be joined by Sweden’s Martin Jacobsonwith 64,750,000 and Norway’s Felix Stephensen, who will begin the final day with 46,100,000.
All three players are now guaranteed at least $3,807,753. The runner-up will take home $5,147,911 and the winner will bank $10,000,000
