The 2015 Wynn Fall Classic Main Event concluded on Monday, and it was Joe McKeehen who walked away with the title and $90,125 in prize money. McKeehen is the current runaway chip leader of the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event that will resume play at the beginning of November to play down to a champion.
The $1,600 buy-in event attracted a field of 267 entries, generating a prize pool of $388,485 that surpassed the $300,000 guarantee.
McKeehen entered the final day of play fourth in chips amongst the final 12 players. Leading the way was David Levi with 1.765 million in chips, and McKeehen's stack was at 549,000 when the last day started. As it turned out, Levi went on to finish in fifth place for $19,813.
Seth Berger was the player McKeehen reached heads-up play against, but in the end Berger fell short. Berger had a shot to move over $1 million in live tournament earnings with a victory, but will have to settle on $978,472 after his second-place payday of $60,992.
Final Table Results
McKeehen will now set his sights on the 2015 WSOP Main Event final table, where he'll enter with 32.8 percent of the chips in play and a massive stack of 158 big blinds.
