The November Niners known, Joe McKeehen leads the way - WSOP Main Event
In the poker room of the luxurious Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the upcoming battle promises to be a stun with 9 players of the 6, 420-player field remain in the hunt. These survivors are automatically given seats to the forthcoming WSOP November Nine event. Unfortunately, the Canada-born poker pro Daniel Negreanu is not listed among the luck ones. He actually saw his run cut to 11th-place. Deep would also be the fall for the events bubble boy, Alex Turyansky. Leading the way to the ultimate battle is the formidable USs Joe McKeehen with 64 million chips. Among his victims include the bubble boy and then best-positioned Daniel Negreanu. Speaking of his current feat, McKeehen finished runner-up in the WSOP Monster Stack event in 2014. Though he has the biggest stack among the finalists, McKeehen would need extra efforts to be able to turn his game a notch.
Those making it through the final include a number of notable names. Max Steinberg, among others, is part of them. The one-time WSOP bracelet winner has 20,200,000 chips. Pierre Neuville and his 21,075,000 chips is also part of the men to watch in this race. In this competition, veteran poker player Neuville represents both Belgium and Frances honors. Rounding out the list are Zvi Stern (29,800,000), Joshua Beckley (10.8 million), Thomas Cannuli (12,250,000), Patrick Chan (6,255,000), Frederico Butteroni (6,200,000) and Neil Blumenfield (22,000,000). It is still worth mentioning that a minimum prize of $ 1 million awaits the one who would hit the rail first.
