Gordon Vayo's entrance in Level 6 of today's Say 1A $500,000 guaranteed Ante Up World Championships Main Event marks the third northern California WSOP November Niner to be in today's field.
JC Tran is sitting at a table right behind Vayo.
Tran finished 5th in the 2013 WSOP Main Even for $2.1 million
Steve Gee finished 9th in 2012 WSOP Main Event, cashing for $754,000. Gee almost went back-to-back, taking 24th in 2013.
Now all we need to do is add Neil Blumenfield and Amir Lehavot and the entire NorCal Chapter from the decade would be here. Blumenfield has been a tournament regular at Thunder Valley for a number of years. He was 3rd in last year's WSOP Main Event for $3.9 million, while Lehavot - Blumenfield's poker coach - was 3rd in 2013 WSOP Main Event for $3.7 million.
