As we made our way through the jam packed Event Center we spotted two WSOP Main Event winners in the field. Joe McKeehen and Scott Blumstein are seated just one table apart and both have lived the moment that every poker player dreams about.
Joe McKeehen won the $10,000 WSOP NLH Main Event in 2015 besting the stacked 6,420 entry field earning over $7,600,000 and his first WSOP bracelet. McKeehen has since added a second WSOP bracelet to his resume and he’s earned more than $15,700,000 throughout his career.
McKeehen is no stranger to success here at The Borgata where he holds three Borgata Poker titles dating back to 2014.
Scott Blumstein’s WSOP NLH Main Event victory came in 2017. He bested the massive 7,221 entry field earning $8,150,000 and his first WSOP bracelet.
Blumstein may have honed his skills in large entry tournament fields here at Borgata as well. His previous largest career tournament score came in the 2016 Borgata Summer Open.
Blumstein was the last man standing in the 2,368 entry $560 BSPO $1,000,000 Deepstack Kick-Off NLH to take home $199,854 and the trophy.
