McKeehen, won the WSOP main event in the year 2015, and he won the amount of $7.7 million in it, after winning the event, he didn’t attach himself with the poker community. Opposite to most of the previous champions of the event, he refused to accept the offer to serve as a poker ambassador, and even made his Twitter profile “private” so that, he didn’t receive post or the likes of the people whom he doesn’t know.

This is the reason he is not a liked personality in the poker community and this is because of this smug and antisocial behavior. In addition to that, he has been seen involved in number of arguments with his fellow poker pros after the big win.
