      There is not long to until we will find out who this year's Main Event final tablists are. However, we won't know who is the WSOP Main Event champion until a few months later, as the final table will be played out in November.

      Do you prefer to have the final table played right after the other playdays? Do you like the idea of having it delayed? Take part in this week's vote and tell us what side you're on.

      With the 4 month gap they get to market themselves. OOOOO Phil Ivey made the final table so put him on a full tilt ad. Or make some guys team pokerstars pros or something. In other words it is good for the players.

      The main reason that the final table is in November is to promote and generate income from the November Nine players. I personally hate the idea it means that the people that are running good and playing well might not be like that in November, it means that people have time to study their opponents where as someone like Darvin Moon isn't going to do that and will have less chance of winning. There are many other reasons though.

      I think Toby summed it up pretty nicely. I think 2-4 weeks after should be enough time for them to get a nice sponsorship deal. I don't like that it's in november.. it's just way too long.

      i think november because its the only month which starts with n, same letter that nine starts with

      if it was a 6max event then i think september would be better

      Exactly

      It's all about the alliteration, nevermind sponsorship
