A big congratulations to Joe McKeehen, the winner of the 46th annual World Series of Poker Main Event! The 24-year-old poker pro dominated this year's final table, which was played over three days, to claim a staggering $7,683,346 in prize money and the gold and diamond coveted bracelet!
With just about 3 weeks to go until the 2015 WSOP Main Event final table, Phil Hellmuth announced via a video clip last Tuesday that he will coach November Niner Federico Butteroni, who will bring the smallest stack to the final table (15 big blinds). Hellmuth is hopeful, though. Well, he must be since he has decided to dedicate five days of his life to prepare Butteroni for the final table, where a first-place prize of $7,680,021 is at stake.
The second starting flight attracted 1,716 players who put up the $10,000 buy-in for a last chance at taking home a bracelet at this year's World Series of Poker. The cards were in the air once 2014 WSOP Player of The Year George Danzer called out the classic words "shuffle up and deal".
