John Hennigan captures $1.5M and his 3rd WSOP bracelet.

After five long days we finally have a winner in the high-rolling mixed game bonanza that is the $50K Poker Players Championship. John “Johnny World” Hennigan bags his 3rd World Series of Poker bracelet and a cool $1.5+ milly to go along with it pushing his career earnings well overt he $6M mark.

Hennigan faced some stiff competition as the players whittled themselves down including runner-up, Brandon Shack-Harris, Brandon Cantu’s arch-enemy Jesse Martin and the out on bail Abe Mosseri.

Melissa Burr, the first woman to ever cash in the $50K PPC, wrapped up her historic deep run with a 7th place finish, one better than Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler.

Check out his winner’s interview with PokerNews's Sarah Grant where he talks about the emotional highs and lows that go along with battling in such a prestigious tournament.
