Joe McKeehen Leads Final Six In 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table

The 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event final table got off to a fast start when Patrick Chan was eliminated on just the second hand of play, but the rest of the night was a slow grind full of tanking, intense staring and more tanking.

In the nearly six hours of ESPN coverage, just 72 total hands were dealt. Granted, much of that time was filled by commercial breaks, but it wasn’t uncommon to see hands take upwards of ten minutes. One hand between Neil Blumenfield, Ofer Svi Stern and Pierre Neuville lasted nine minutes, and it didn’t even reach the flop.

After Chan’s elimination in ninth place at the hands of chip leader Joe McKeehen, Federico Butteroni was the next to go. The Italian poker player came into the final table short stacked and really couldn’t do anything with McKeehen on his right.

It was 37 hands later when McKeehen scored his third knockout of the night, taking out Neuville despite being dominated. After the hand was over, the WSOP in conjuction with ESPN decided to pause play for the night and have the final six return the next day at 4:30 pm PT.

Going into Monday night’s action, Joe McKeehen will lead the way once again with 91,450,000. His five opponents, Blumenfield, Stern, Max Steinberg, Josh Beckley and Tom Cannuli, only have a combined 101,200,000 between them, meaning McKeehen has more than 47 percent of the chips in play.

Here is a look at the final six chip counts.

Joe McKeehen 91,450,000

Neil Blumenfield 31,500,000

Tom Cannuli 10,425,000
