The 2015 WSOP Main Event Final Table Set

The 2015 WSOP Main Event Final Table SetThe 2015 WSOP main event attracted a total of 6,420 players to create a $60,348,000 prize pool, and on Day 7 of the marathon tournament the final table was reached, with the remaining players now guaranteed a $1,001,020 payday for their deep run. The competition will now take a four months break when the “November Nine” will return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino once more, and vie for poker immortality and the first place prize of  $7,680,021.
Losers
Day 7 saw 27 hopefuls compete for a place at this year’s final table, and amongst the 18 players subsequently falling short of their main event aspirations was Daniel Negreanu. The 40 year-old poker legend had managed to stay in the middle of the pack most of the day before hitting a downswing and falling near the bottom of the chip counts with just 13 players remaining. Negeanu then found himself all-in holding As-4d on a Ad-Kc-10d flop, but up against the Jd-3d of Joe McKeehen. A 3h on the turn and a Qh on the river subsequently sealed the Canadian’s fate, and so Negreanu was eliminated in 11th place for a $526,778 payday, matching his 11th place finish in the tournament back in 2001.
Other notables crashing out on the day included Fedor Holz (25th), Blake Bohn (23rd), Anton Morgenstern (22nd), David Stefanski (16th), and Justin Schwartz (14th).
Winners
This year’s November Nine includes one WSOP bracelet winner in the guise of Max Steinberg, a pro with $1,936,457 in life time earnings not including his latest score. Chip leader Joseph McKeehen (24) has also amassed $1,995,070 throughout his tournament career, whilst Belgium pro Pierre Neuville tops the live poker tournament list with $2,174,187 in winnings, as well as having the distinction of being the oldest November Nine in history at 72 years of age. Interestingly, Software Executive Neil Blumenfield, 61, would have held that honor if not for Neuville.
All the remaining players except Israel’s Zvi Stern (36) list their professions as ‘Poker Player’, including Joshua Beckley (24), Thomas Cannuli (23), Patrick Chan (26), and Federico Butteroni (25).
