Depending on how tonight concludes, this year's November Nine will see either seven or eight different countries represented among the final nine players, most likely a record for WSOP Main Event final tables. (Check out the profiles from earlier in the evening to see who is from where.)

A quick search back through the last decade shows the most countries represented at a single WSOP ME final table during the 2000s to have been six (in 2007).

2010 - U.S. (6), Canada (2), Italy (1)
2009 - U.S. (7), England (1), France (1)
2008 - U.S. (5), Canada (2), Denmark (1), Russia (1)
