Joe McKeehen wins third WSOP bracelet

Joe McKeehen 2020

On Tuesday, another WSOP Online event collected 496 entries. All players paid a $3 200 buy-in, which allowed the operator to form a prize pool of $1 507 000. The winner was supposed to get a gold bracelet, and this award went to Joe McKeehen.

It was Joe who became a WSOP Main Event champion 5 years ago. Back then, he received $7 683 000 and a coveted gold bracelet. Two years later, the guy captured another bracelet in a $10K WSOP tournament. Now, when the WSOP 2020 is being held online, Joe won his third WSOP trophy in poker career.

Roland earned $148 000, but again left without a coveted trophy. To better understand the situation, this is his 230th WSOP cash, but the player has not yet managed to win a gold bracelet.

Roland will continue hunting for the bracelet in other tournaments, and we proceed to the heads-up between Joe McKeehen and Frank Funaro. The last had a significant advantage in stack at the beginning of HU: 9 100 000 against 3 200 000.

The 2015 ME WSOP champion radiated aspiration for victory: he pulled himself together and soon started to lead the race. As a result, Joe defeated Funaro, having won his third gold bracelet and $352 000.
