John Hennigan is no stranger to World Series of Poker success. By winning Event #27: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, Hennigan is just the 25th player to win five bracelets. His WSOP success dates back to 2002 when he won his first bracelet, and 16 years later Hennigan is still at the top of his game.
Still, despite his even-keeled nature and laid-back demeanor at the table, Hennigan still has to combat what many poker players have to on a consistent basis.
"It was a high-pressure final table. Iraj (Parvizi) yesterday was really putting everybody on tilt, me especially. The only guy I thought that held it together was David Baker. He played a great tournament in my opinion. It was a good learning experience for me because I was so tilted and kind of fell apart and got saved by the deck really. I had some very lucky situations when I was short, and it's just a really nice win."
