2014 WSOP November Nine Felix Stephensen Second on Chip List

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Sitting in the number two spot on the chip leader board we find Oslo, Norway native Felix Stephensen.  Now living in London, England Stephensen has no previous cashes in the World Series of Poker and shows lifetime live earnings to be $22,118.  With an almost non-existent live poker resume how did this 23-year-old end up with a seat and T32,775,000 in play money in the most famous final table in Poker?

Let us examine his path to his assigned Seat #2 for the November finale of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event.  The journey began when Stephensen developed an affinity for online poker and playing under the pseudonym “FallAtYourFeet” he has amassed more than $300,000 in earnings since 2001.

Next, we follow his journey to Las Vegas with a group of friends to the WSOP at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.  Stephensen apparently had a plan and it was to enter (and win, obviously) the Main Event because that's the only event he played during the 2014 WSOP.  He survived the inherent insanity of Main Event Day 1C to return on Day 2 with slightly more chips than his starting T30K.

Unlike the chip leader, Jorryt van Hoof, whom rode a roller coaster to his final table seat, Felix Stephensen spent the first five days of play making modest additions to his chip total.  Finally on Day 6 he got the momentum engine fired up and began his climb up the chip leader board.  Day 7 began with Stephensen in ninth place holding almost seven and three quarters of a million in chips.

Adding to his stacks throughout Day 7 he was sitting behind T14,640,000 when Tom Sarra Jr four-bet and Stephensen moved all-in only to be called by Sarra.  When the T25 million pot was pushed to Stephensen he was suddenly the chip leader with T27.86 in the WSOP Main Event.  The double up not only made him the chip leader but it guaranteed his claim to a seat at the final table and his rightful place among the November Nine.

Stephensen is a firm believer in the “Poker is a Game of Skill, “ philosophy.  Considering the young player's smooth style and more than a decade of solid experience to back up his play he could be the next World's Greatest Poker Player.
