Frontline
9/8c PBS
Why would someone confess to a crime he didn't commit?

While dedicated poker viewers have enjoyed two-hour doses of the Main Event for the last 13 weeks, the nine players to make the final table have been anxiously waiting out a 110-day break. At last, the "November Nine" have reassembled in Las Vegas to chase the $8.9 million-plus first prize in front of a massive theater audience. With ninth-place paying out only $811,823, the tension is immense on every all-in call, accompanied by ESPN analyst Norman Chad's sublime commentary. Canadian Jonathan Duhamel is chip leader ($65.9 million); Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi ($14.5 million) is the most feared player; and Californian Soi Nguyen ($9.6 million) is the lone amateur, hoping to match the feat of the overachieving Giants in that other World Series. Shuffle up and deal! — Roger Leister
