2015 WSOP Main Event November Nine Found

The World Series of Poker 2015 (WSOP) has come to an end, at least for now. The tournament series which attracts all the best players from around the world, had its last official day of play today, where the November Nine finalists for the main event tournament was found.

Since the end of May, tens-of-thousands of poker players have played various tournaments in different formats, games and buy-in sizes. The series has found the best players in the world for all the variants of poker you could imagine and now only the main event is left to finish - But we will have to wait until November to see that happening.

The day started with 27 hopeful players, who all were competing for a shot at coming back to Las Vegas in November and try to win the first prize of $7,680,000. One of the players that many were rooting for was Daniel Negreanu, as he is seen as a great ambassador for poker, but the cards didn’t want that to happen this time around.

Instead we saw Daniel Negreanu bust out in 11th place, after losing an all-in against Joseph McKeehen. After Negreanu’s bust it was final table bubble time and once again McKeehen was involved, as his QQ held against the AK of Alexander Turyansky and we the final table was found. Below you can see all the final table finalists and their stack sizes:
