The November Nine are set – and US-Boy Joe McKeehen has managed to gather the Chip lead in the WSOP Main Event. Pierre Neuville from Belgium (4th) and Federico Butteroni of Italy are the only two European players who made it to the final table. Poker-Superstar Daniel Negreanu missed the November Nine. The canadian finished 11th and takes home $526,778.

It was beyond midnight in Las Vegas when Alex Turyansky from Germany was the last player to leave the tournament before it is frozen till November. Turyansky went All-In with AK against chipleader McKeehen with QQ. With a Flop of 7 6 5, an 8 at the Turn and a J on the river, McKeehen managed to stay in the lead and send Turyansky home. The German takes $757,000 with him – by far the biggest win in his career. All the remaining players have already won at least $1,000,000.

Shortly beforte Turyansky, “Kid Poker” Daniel Negreanu had to leave the table. He finished 11th and did not seem to be too unhappy about the $526,778. In a Periscope-Livestream he said thank you to all his supporters:

With Negreanu sidelined, Joe McKeehen will be the big favourite on the title when the tournament continues on November 8th. McKeehen has the biggest poker experience of the remaining field. And he has by far the most chips. 63 million chips – thats almost a third of all the chips in game. Here are the complete November Nine:

Seat 1: Zvi Stern – 29,800,000 (74 bb)
Seat 2: Pierre Neuville – 21,075,000 (52 bb)
Seat 3: Joshua Beckley – 11,800,000 (27 bb)
Seat 4: Max Steinberg – 20,200,000 (50 bb)
Seat 5: Thomas Cannuli – 12,250,000 (30 bb)
Seat 6: Joe McKeehen – 63,100,000 (160 bb)
Seat 7: Patrick Chan – 6,225,000 (15 bb)
Seat 8: Federico Butteroni – 6,200,000 (15 bb)
Seat 9: Neil Blumenfield – 22,000,000 (55 bb)
