Eric Buchman has once again proved his talent at poker by staying strong even on day four. Buchman, who finished fourth last year and won $2,502,890, is still going strong deep into day four of the 2010 renewal. None of Messrs Cada, Moon, Saout, Shulman, Begleigter, Ivey, Schaffel or Akenhead can make the same boast. Neither can any of the previous November Nine. Eastgate, Demidov, Phillips, Schwartz, Montgomery, Suharto, Rheem, Kim or Marquis are all long departed, if they played at all.
