Final 18 Hometown Breakdown: The Year of Canada?

by , Jul 17, 2010 | 6:09 pm

We’re starting to get a glimpse of what the 2010 November Nine will look like. And as of now, it looks to be rather Euro-heavy. Of the 18 remaining players, four of them are non-Americans. And those four happen to be atop the leaderboard — 1st, 2nd, and 4th in chips all from Canada, and 5th from Italy. The top 2 are Quebecois … which adds a whole new element of fun/possible separatism.

Amongst the Americans, we’ve got:

California – 5
Florida – 3
Washington State – 2
Minnesota – 1
Kansas – 1
Texas – 1
Wisconsin – 1

Nevada – 0

That last number is particularly interesting to me. Though haven’t added up the total cash won in the main event, Nevadans got so shut out of the big money it’s almost weird. Only one player — Robert Pisano from Las Vegas — made the starting 27 today, but is already out having finished 23rd.

UPDATE: 17 left, as Scott Clements from Mt. Vernon, WA just went out.

    2008 had three Canadians in the top 15 (Montgomery, Suharto and Crowe).
