The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino of Las Vegas, Nevada hosted the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table over the weekend with the November Nine hitting the felt on Sunday to see who will be the ultimate champion. The chip leader going in to the final table was Joe McKeehen and the twenty four year old put his chip stack to good use.
The poker pro was able to eliminate three players, Patrick Chan, Federico Butteroni and Pierre Neuville to whittle down the final table to six players. The six players remaining will come back to the action this evening to move even closer to naming a Main Event champion.
Chan was eliminated from game play after only the second hand of the evening. Chan held K-Q off suit and was all in after McKeehen moved all-in with A-4 off suit. The board did give anything but McKeehen had the better hand, increasing his lead.
Butteroni would go a while later after going all in with A-J off suit and being called by McKeehen who held A-K spades. The board once again went in McKeehen’s favor and Butteroni was eliminated. Neuville would be the last to go, taking seventh place after going up against McKeehen’s J-6 of hearts. Neuville held A-J of clubs but the hearts on the board gave McKeehen a flush and the win.
The performance of McKeehen was the talk of the night though it is worth mentioning that Zvi Ofer Stern was given a warning for taking too long in his decision making during game play. This was according to a report by Phil Hellmuth who was working as an analyst for ESPN during the event. Players must make decision in a timely manner to keep the event moving along for both game play and television needs.
