Hit and Run: McKeehen Cruising in Main Event; Pennsylvania Holds a DFS Hearing; Amaya Stock Tumbles
Joe McKeehen is completely dominating the WSOP Main Event Final Table. Amaya stock down big following earnings call. Dusty Schmidt’s dad was shot in his leather ass?
November Nine: Can anyone stop McKeehen?
Following the eliminations of Thomas Cannuli, Ofer Zvi Stern, and Max Steinberg, we are down to just three players in the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event and if you thought Joe McKeehen had a big lead going into the final nine, he has an even bigger lead going into the final three, as he owns 129 million of the 193 million chips in play: 66% of the chips!
- Joe McKeehen – 128,825,000
- Neil Blumenfield – 40,125,000
- Joshua Beckley – 23,700,000
The 2015 WSOP Champion will be crowned tonight, and you can watch (almost) live on ESPN.

– Amaya’s Tuesday morning earning call covered a number of topics: the potential unveiling of an eSports/poker crossover product; an update on the New Jersey online poker launch, which will now likely occur sometime in H1 of 2016; and the expectation that Russian online poker licenses will be available in 2016. And in other news, Amaya’s stock is down big today, with the stock now valued at half of what it was just a year ago.
– On Monday New Jersey held a hearing on daily fantasy sports and on Tuesday it was Pennsylvania’s turn. Both states seem to be taking a conservative approach to addressing potential regulation of the DFS industry.
