Your Turn, Neil

Amir Lehavot has joined the Ante Up Worlds Main Event field here in Level 3, making it now four members of the NorCal Chapter of the November Niners to enter this tournament.

Lehavot was 3rd at the WSOP Main Event in 2013 - a $3.7 million cash - the same year that JC Tran finished 5th for $2 milly.

Tran was in the field yesterday along with one of this year's November Niners - Gordon Vayo.

Steve Gee - 9th in the 2013 WSOP Main Event - is also in today's field (he played yesterday too, but we only could him once!). Gee had a shot of joining Tran and Lehavot in 2013 as he made back-to-back deep runs, but was knocked out in 24th place in '13.

The only recent NorCal Chapter member missing is last year's 3rd place finisher, Neil Blumenfield - who is using the excuse he's in France as why he can't drive over and jump in the field.
