McKeehen Near The Top as Milly Maker Down to Two Tables

Three days of play in the $1,500 No-Limit Holdem MILLIONAIRE MAKER, popularly known as the Milly Maker, has seen a starting field of 7361 obliterated, only 17 men left standing – with 2016 Main Event champ Joe McKeehen sitting 6th in chips as the players chase a first prize of $1,173,223…

Some 155 players had returned to the Rio yesterday evening, Greg Merson among them, but the 2012 Main Event champ couldn’t stand the pace, eventually falling outside the top 100 and taking $7,697 for his troubles as McKeehen, Germany’s Manig Loeser and Hendon Mobster Barney Boatman all made it through a tough day’s play, with keeping fans updated along the way…



As always the Milly Maker throws up a lot of new names, amateurs and small-time pros alike mixing it with the stars, and Indiana’s Chad Hahn claimed the top of the leaderboard as his own at close of play, 4-time WSOP Circuit winner Michael Souza not far behind…



With the money starting to get very serious indeed – day four players guaranteed a minimum of $51,188 and the final nine looking at over $100k apiece – it may prove to be an epic fight when the 17 return tonight, although the final table won’t kick off until Thursday afternoon.
