The 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event final table (November Nine) is set after the seventh day of play concluded with nine players. Joseph McKeehen, who started Day 7 with close to 12 million in chips, will lead the way to the final table with a monster stack of 63,100,000! That is more than double what McKeehen's closest opponent, Zvi Stern, managed to accumulate.

Posted by doubletop777: Joseph McKeehen takes a monster chip lead into the final table but, to have to wait 4 months to do so, is just craziness to me. They should just play it out today like they used to
Yeah, I can take the marketing angle of the four months wait, but it's still utterly stupid that they are doing this.

McKeehen had a big strike on this final moments until the November Nine were chosen, after defeating Negreanu he also defeated the bubble Alex Turyansky. That gave him a big lead, now we just have to wait until November to see if the winning spree will continue on his side!

I agree that the wait for the final table is just annoying and hopefully this will stop soon.Apparently it is supposed to bring business to Vegas twice a year but I am sure there is a better way than this.There is a 72 year old player....no disrespect to any old guys but at that age do you really want to wait 4 months for your greatest poker tourney ever. I can't believe the massive difference in chip stacks from 2x shorties at 6m right up to 63m.

Honestly that 'old' fella probably having the time of his life - earning a free beer in every pub where he is telling a story about how he made it onto the final table of the wsop main event plus becoming a millionare just by doing so. Not a bad life tbh, I hope he is cherising this waiting time as much as he can.

But we saw it in the past, that not the player with the biggest starting stack at the november nine final table wins the WSOP. It was interesting to see, witch gaming style he played: aggressive or not.
I am not sure that the half-dozen tourneys from the recent years with the delayed november final tables are enough of a sample to say chipleaders hardly win the main event but I am sure as hell I won't be the one who will look after this more thoroughly.
