We've just taken a quick scan around the Orange section, and it's pretty well scattered with notables. Most notable is the fact that we have a couple of former Main Event final tablists with us over here. In 2006, Mike Binger finished in third place overall behind Paul Wasicka and Jamie Gold, good enough for a score of more than $4 million for Binger. (Incidentally, brother Nick just one-upped him this week by winning the family's first bracelet.)
Two years later, the November Nine was formed, and Ivan Demidov was one of the inaugural members. He made it all the way to heads-up before falling to Peter Eastage, a feat that earned him more than $5.8 million. Demidov is here in our section today, too.
Joe Cada took the title the next year, besting Darvin Moon heads-up. Moon is one of those hard-to-describe characters in the poker world, and he's made his return to the WSOP today in the Orange section as well.
We're also privileged to have a 2010 November Niner in our area as John Dolan, the sixth-place finisher, is here.
