72 | Age won’t matter once Pierre Neuville begins his November Nine journey

EPT8COP

The 2015 edition of the WSOP November Nine is right around the corner – we countdown to this year’s N9 with stats and facts surrounding the festivities:

Pierre Neuville is 72-years-young. During the WSOP, he’s often seen jogging inside the Rio on off days in order to remain in peek physical condition.

Despite his young-at-heart attitude, Neuville has set the record as the oldest player to ever reach the November Nine finale. Should he win the Main Event, Neuville would also set the mark as the oldest ME winner ever – the legendary Johnny Moss currently holds the record – 67.

Fab Five | Oldest Players at 2015 Final Table
#5 – 26 – Patrick Chan (USA)
#4 – 27 – Max Steinberg (USA)
#3 – 36 – Zvi Stern (ISR)
#2 – 61 – Neil Blumenfield (USA)
#1 – 72 – Pierre Neuville (BEL)
