WSOP Results - Joseph McKeehen Wins WSOP 2015 Bags 7.7 Million

The November Nine of the WSOP came down to two players Joshua Beckley and Joseph McKeehen. It was won by McKeehen who held a sizeable lead throughout the tourney. He was not favored to win since rarely is the chip leader going into the WSOP Final Table has come the winner. The only one in recent history is Jonathan Duhamel in 2008. But McKeehen powered through opponents like a game of dominoes taking down player after player and going home with $7.7 million dollars.
In a video interview from Cardplayer, he states he isn't going to be playing as much he was. He doesn't need to now . He's the poker king for the next couple of years. He can do coaching or play against high rollers in Vegas. I was surprised to learn about very wealthy people looking to play high stakes poker in Vegas with Phil Ivey , Dan Negreanu, Rick Salomon and the likes. These stakes are high , into the tens of millions of dollars. And McKeehen can do endorsements as well. Joshua Beckley is allready endorsing America's Cardroom. I don't know how much he's getting but it must be good!

WSOP Results are below:
1. Joseph McKeehen $7,683,346
2. Joshua Beckley $4,470,896

Joe McKeehen - Poker Profile of Today Tops Poker Stars - November WSOP 2015

He appears to be a professor of some sort and plays unlike so many players. He squints his eyes as he plays. Wears no sunglasses, hoodies or disguises to hide facial expressions but he roars like a lion when he plays poker. He's Joe McKeehen, chip leader going into the November Nine and he rocks. He says he feeling no stress going into the last round and it really shows. He represents a different kind of player , no shark attitude at all. You won't hear from him I'm stacking bitches. It's a refreshing profile from the game of poker where you're a fish, donkey or shark.

He's also chip leader going into the the November Nine with over 60,000,000 chips. Will he hold onto his lead and push it to the limit? You'll have to see. His cashes are very impressive , nearly $2,000,000 at the age of 24. Last year he won over $800,000 at the WSOP. He's good bet to become the next Pokerstar in ranks of Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey.

Thomas Cannuli - Preparing for a Big Poker Tournament - WSOP 2015

I'm going over the November Nine and saw a Thomas Cannuli video on Youtube. In it, he talks about where he is right now at the pinnacle of success in the poker world or at least at its doorstep and how it feels. It was so good, I wanted others to look and get the feel of a "winning poker player's" approach.
The video is an interview from WSOP. He talks about how he is greatful, blessed and lucky that everything happened the way it did. He was in the WSOP last year but busted out at 690th place or so. So he's right to credit everything that happened the way it did. In fact it's easy to get a great hand but to maintain a grip and win really is a blessing. All of us have gotten great hands ie. four of a kind, full houses, straights but don't always turn it into winning a tournament. Keeping an edge is a blessing.
He also mentions he's taking a month or so off. Sometimes it's great to do just that . Don't play everyday or every waking minute. Get out, broaden horizons and take your mind off the game so you don't burn yourself out. And in the process you'll keep yourself more excited about the game. After he's going to play like crazy and sharpen up. And he's got great mentors to help him.
His motivation for playing? He says it simply is money. Money is what makes the world go around in poker and keeps you playing. Without money you won't be in the game. He also says his other reason for loving winning at poker is that it keeps him as his own boss. He says that while wearing a Hugo Boss tshirt with the word BOSS noted bodly in center. And this is a great reason to be a winning poker player. You don't answer to anybody. Here's the video.

How to Play the Blinds in Texas Holdem Poker

One of the worst positions to play in Texas Holdem Poker is the blinds. The position to the left of the dealer. The blind position is the player who has to make the first move without assessing any body language of any player. And all players can look at the blind positioned player for clues about their hand and force a call. But there is strategy to deal with this situation.

The blind player should always be ready to fold and hand.The risk versus the reward is often low.If a player raises pre-flop , then it is best to fold.You have to do assessment of your fellow players . Is the player whistling dixie or have a nice smile. It may be a clue he has a good hand.Conversely , he could have been checking out your body language and sense you have a lousy hand.

Playing the blinds is where tight aggressive poker strategy comes into its own. Fold poor hands quickly and if you get a good hand , a high pair for example, call and raise.If you follow this strategy , your fellow players will sense a good hand and will more often fold than risk their chips.If you win , you might feel lucky to just made it through the blind position as a winner.

Late position players often pick on the blinds . It's called blind stealing and is a preflop raise. However if you re-raise , then it may be assumed you have a good hand. The late position might just fold.

Always assess your stack as well as fellow players.Putting up enought chips make it look like you think you think you may win and are committed to the pot.The right size bet can go along way in image at the table.And in Texas Holdem Poker , image is just as important as the right cards.

In conclusion, playing the blinds is never the best place to be as contrast to late position at the table. The blinds position player is the first to act and everyone gets to read his body language . The sizing up by an experienced player might indicate if he has a good or poor hand and everyone can adjust their playing style accordingly. The blind position is the worst position to bluff also because more players with try blind stealing and force the blind to re-raise.But with a tight strategy of choosing to play the best cards , a blind position player can still do well increasing small stakes into a larger stack.

Russian businessman Mikhail Smirnov Folds Four of a Kind

During the Big One for One Drop poker tournament, Russian businessman Mikhail Smirnov folded four-of-a-kind, commonly referred to as quads, against another businessman, John Morgan. The play took place during the first day of thd Big One for One Drop Texas Hold ‘Em tournament, where players fork over the highest buy-in in World Series of Poker history, $1 million.One million clams buy-in that's right.

Smirnov, who was holding an eight of hearts and eight of diamonds in his hand, entered into the hand with Tom Dwan and Morgan. The flop revealed a seven of spades, jack of spades and eight of clubs. Smirnov, with three eights, bet $50,000, Dwan folded and Morgan called the bet.

The turn showed an eight of spades, the fourth for Smirnov, and created a potential straight flush on the board. Smirnov bet $200,000 and Morgan again called the bet, which was approximately the size of the pot.

The final card, the river, was a king of spades. Smirnov again led out with a bet of $700,000 before Morgan came over the top and went all-in for about $2M more. Smirnov then folded his four eights, face-up, giving Morgan the pot. He folded and no one knows what Morgan had in his hand.

Smirnov’s four eights could only have lost to a nine and ten of spades. Morgan did not reveal if he had the straight flush, but Smirnov defended his play. Morgan never revealed his hand.I would have held on just because of probability.
I wasn't at the table so I couldn't see the poker clues that Morgan must have read. But I'm assuming he read his fellow player well and knew Mikhail Smirnov was a lucky player not a skilled player and that he was so rich his experience might have been lacking. Let's see how the final table goes which is July 3 , 2012. This tournament is a charity event to raise awareness of need for clean water.

The Big One Poker Tournament - the largest buy-in in Poker history - Wsop

This special tournament is to heighten awareness of water crisis in Africa.There's a pool of 48 players including
Jonathan Duhamel ,in 2010 Jonathan Duhamel was the first Canadian to ever win the World Series of Poker Championship. Since, he has been a consist winner.
Tom Dwan , better known by the player handle "durrrr", is a living legend of online poker. One of the most prolific players in the history of the game, Dwan is more than an online star; he has already established himself as one of the world’s best live high-stakes ring game players, as well as a formidable tournament player. With a buy-in so large , only the best will be at this tourney. The grand prize is over $18,000,000.
