PNIA Main Event (Day 1A): Closing Out The Year With Another Big Score

Level 3 (50/100)
Total PNIA Main Event Entries: 113

2016 is nearly at an end and for quite a few players, it has been a year filled with success and triumph. With the year coming to a close, though, there is certainly the itch to get one more big score before the calendar turns to 2017.

This year has marked by far the most successful run of Jeremy Meacham’s tournament career. The Massachusets native has gained a large percentage of his $356,000 in live earnings in 2016 with the peak coming in June when he finished fourth in a Wynn Summer Classic event for $101,000. Since then Meacham has stuck to mainly the East Coast but has made the trip out to Oklahoma to strike gold once again.

Ben Keeline was the toast of Las Vegas in the early stages of this summer’s World Series of Poker when he outlasted a field of 22,000 to win “The Colossus” and the $1,000,000 first place prize. Keeline has previously come close to having a Choctaw Championship Banner hung with his face on it as he took second in the 2015 WSOP Circuit event to Jose Montes. Keeline is coming off of back-to-back WSOP Circuit final tables in October and has a bit of momentum on his side as he goes for another trophy before year’s end.
