2015 WSOP Final Table: Just Three Remain

2015 WSOP Final Table: Just Three RemainAfter more than 76 hours of play, Day 9 of the 2015 WSOP Main Event is now in the bag with just three competitors remaining out of an original starting field of 6,420.
The tournament, of course, took a four month break in July before the final table got underway on November 8th, and as things stood Joseph McKeehen was out in front as the chip leader, followed by Neil Blumenfield in 3rd, and Josh Beckley in 7th. All three surviving US players will now be vying for the $7,683,346 top prize, as well as a place in the poker history books, when they return to the action at 6 p.m. later today at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The runner-up can also expect to receive $4,470,896 for his efforts, while third place is worth $3,398,298.
Ante 150k, Blinds 500k/1m:
Joseph McKeehen 128,825,000
Neil Blumenfield 40,125,000
Josh Beckley 23,700,000
The Action
The first of the six remaining November Niners to exit on Day 2 of the final table was Thomas Cannuli in 6th, after which Neil Blumenfield (A-K) took care of Zvi Stern (A-J) in 5th. Next, Joseph McKeehen (A-Q) eliminated Max Steinberg (A-J) in 4th, after which an overnight halt was called to proceedings with an ultimate champion to be decided on the following day.
Three Remain
Joe McKeehen, 24, is a poker pro from Pennsylvania with around $2 million in live tournament earnings, as well as a further $1,173,693 won online pre-Black Friday.
Neil Blumenfield, 61, is a retired computer software executive, who has $130,468 in tournament winnings, and is now hoping to become the oldest player to win a WSOP Main Event since a 67 year-old Johnny Moss did so in 1974.
Josh Beckley, 25, is a New Jersey pro with $219,526 in earnings, and despite starting as the smallest stack of the final three players, remains positive of his prospects going into the last stretch. As he explains:
“It’s very crazy. I hoped to be here. I worked hard to be here. I prepped my body and my mind really well for this and that’s the only reason I’m here. I feel more calm and alert.”
