It was on this day in 2009 that Joe Cada and Darvin Moon played heads-up in the World Series of Poker No Limit Texas Hold’em Main Event.  Cada ended up winning to become the youngest ever winner of the event at 21 years of age.

Darvin Moon entered the final table, known as the “November Nine”, with an overwhelming chip lead, as he had nearly double the chip stack of second place player Eric Buchman.  Phil Ivey was the most notable player at the final table, being a seven time bracelet winner and widely regarded by many as the best no limit Texas Hold’em player in the world.  However, Ivey made an early exit and after 276 hands, they were down to two players.  In the end, Joe Cada would outlast 6,493 players to take home the bracelet and a check for $8 ,547,042.

Here is the final hand from the 2009 main event.
