Hennigan grabs #7

John Hennigan Earns His 7th WSOPC Bracelet John Hennigan won his seventh World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet during a $1,500 Dealer’s Choice Six Max Event that attracted 530 entries – and took home $138,296 as the victor. Billy Baxter and Men Nguyen hold three-way ties for fourth most bracelets alongside Hennigan as he takes home $138,296 from this victory.

Hennigan said he was very delighted to win, not only the tournament but the series as well. For him personally, winning meant not getting second or allowing other people to keep playing after they went bankrupt – both qualities which had him satisfied after coming out victorious in each instance. It felt very rewarding coming out on top! ”

Hennigan has accomplished this feat six times previously in events that offer alternative forms of gameplay besides no-limit poker, beginning his run 24 years ago with victory in a $2,000 Stud Hi-Low event for $117,320; two years later in a $5,000 Limit Hold’em tourney (worth $325,360), Hennigan won again and then again and earned more than $5 Million total!

Hennigan finally captured his third bracelet and largest cash at WSOP in 2014’s $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship for $1.5 million, after 10 years. In three $10,000 “championship” events – 2016 triple draw deuce-to-seven lowball championship ($320,103); 2018 H.O.R.S.E championship ($414,692) and 2019 Stud Championship (securing 245,451).

At the 2008 WSOP, he also won a $5,000 Ante Up for Africa event that wasn’t bracelet eligible – totalling 55 cashes at that tournament with $6.3 Million cashings!

He was honored with being honored with being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2018.

New millionaire minted

Malcolm Trayner became Australia’s youngest millionaire at just 24. Initially from Turramurra and never having attended one WSOP event until entering the $1,000 Mystery Millions event which quickly become one of its signature events, Malcolm made history when winning his own bracelet at just 15!

Yesterday, Mark Trayner successfully claimed both his first bracelet and $1 Million top prize from an enormous field of 18,409 entries that generated an unprecedented prize pool of $16,199,920 – of which Caesars took $300 out of each entry for an overall take of $5522,700.

Although Trayner is making his inaugural WSOP appearance this year, according to Hendon Mob he already boasts seventy cashes at live and online events that total close to $500,000. These previous 70 cashes could become his largest win yet.

Here’s what he told WSOP reporters after winning:

“Everything’s a mix,” they began, “from excitement and overwhelm to happiness galore.

As I admit, I was initially nervous. Early on I made some errors by falling out of step or losing focus during class sessions.

Once I settled into it and adjusted, the rest was easy – playing final table wasn’t hard; my main objective was simply winning everyone else’s chips – my focus remained clear!

Goal accomplished! Reached.
