Anish Patel first became interested in poker after he was introduced to the game Texas Hold’em. Having visited the entertainment capital of the world many times over the years, Patel has been able to collect infinite inspiration and research based on observations when it comes to the world of poker. Vegas has a special place in his heart, and it was during one of his visits there that the idea to create the Final Nine comic was born.
The 2008 November Nine Main Event Final was Patel’s main inspiration for the setting of the Final Nine Comic. Having watched the tournament closely, Patel was captivated by not only the card game but also the lives of the individual players around the table.
Patel’s Final Nine Comic includes characters that are inspired by real-life players, but the events are not based on a true story. Meet the nine players who compete against each other in the biggest Texas Hold’em tournament in Vegas, and find out which one of them will become the Poker World Champion.
