Joe McKeehen Eliminated in 3rd Place ($538,276)
Level 39 : 300,000-600,000, 100,000 ante
Hand #188: Joe McKeehen shoved from the small blind for a little over 2 million and Arne Kern called from the big blind to put McKeehen at risk.
McKeehen had the preflop advantage and Kern needed to improve in order to win the pot. The board ran out and Kern took the pot with a pair of nines to end McKeehen's deep run in this event
It's the second time McKeehen finished 3rd this series, after a third place in the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout at the beginning of the 2018 WSOP.
