Pennsylvania poker pro Joe McKeehen won the World Series of Poker (WSOP) – he topped a field of 6,420 players to earn his first career bracelet and the $7,683,346 first-place prize.
McKeehen won with an ace-10 and got lucky when the community cards revealed a second ten, ensuring his victory in a face-off with Joshua Beckley of New Jersey who went all in with a pair of fours.
World Series of Poker tournament events began in May and continued for 51 days with 68 events, culminating with the annual main event. It’s a grueling multiday poker marathon that whittled down the competition from 6,420 entries at $10,000 each to nine players, all already guaranteed at least $1 million each.
Here’s a look at the final table results.
