Former WSOP Main Event Champions Joe McKeehen (2015) and Jerry Yang (2007) are in the starting field for Event #66.
McKeehen added a second WSOP gold bracelet this year to a WSOP résumé that includes two circuit rings, 36 cashes, and over $10-million in tournament winnings. McKeehen has also won around $3 million in non-WSOP tournaments.
Yang has nine WSOP cashes and hasn't cashed a WSOP event since the Colossus in 2015. He has $8.5 million in WSOP earnings (most from that Main Event win) and about $200,000 in non-WSOP earnings.
