Johnny World Hennigan won his fifth WSOP bracelet when he outlasted a field of 166 runners in Event #27 $10,000 HORSE. Hennigan beat Bakes heads-up for the win and walked away with $415K in cash. Australian pro Michael Addamo won the long-distance Marathon event and survived a tough table that included 2014 WSOP Main Event Champ Martin Jacobson. Addamo shipped his first bracelet with a victory in Event #24 $2,620 NL Marathon for $653,581.

Another wild and wacky Friday night in Las Vegas. Johnny World Hennigan won the $10K HORSE bracelet. That marked his fifth-career win and most-notable win since he shipped the 2014 $50K Players Championship and walked away with the Chip Reese trophy. And after a week of action, Event #24 $2,620 NL a.k.a. The Marathon finally crowned a winner. A pro from Down Under won the long distance race. And he earned his first bracelet in the process. Mike Addamo also became the first Aussie to win a piece of bling this summer. Addamo outlasted a final table that included Cate Hall, Martin Jacobson, Taylor Paur, and Bart Lybaert.

Event #27 $10,000 HORSE - Final Results


Ship it to Johnny World! 5 times!!!!!

An old-school legend and former pool hustler took down his fifth bracelet. Johnny World Hennigan's last big run happened in the summer of 2014 when he binked the $50,000 Players Championship for a $1.5 million score.

It took Johnny World four years to before he finally returned to the bask in the warm glow of the winner's circle and slapped another piece of bling around his wrist. It was another mixed-game affair for Johnny World.

Say hello to… Johnny Five Times.

Not too many players won 5 bracelet in their career, so the victory in the $10K HORSE thrust Johnny World in a special category. He's tied with 9 other players with 5 bracelets, but only 15 other payers have won 6 or more bracelets. In total, 24 players have won at least 5 WSOP events. Only 24 in 49 years. And Johnny World is among the best of the best.

Who else has five bracelets? Stu Ungar.

Whoa… any time you tie Stu Ungar for something, that's a big deal. Ungar's name on the list jumps out at you. Also in the five-time club... Danny Alaei, Allen Cunningham, Jason Mercier, John Juanda, David Chui, Berry Johnston, Bones Berland, and Scotty Nguyen. Bravo, Johnny World Five Times.

This year's $10K HORSE attracted 166 runners and the prize pool topped $1.5 million.

Mike Noori was the first player to bust at the final table. Randy Ohel took fifth place.

Johnny World picked off David ‘Bakes' Baker heads-up for the win. Bakes walked away with $256K as a consolation prize, but he was gunning for the bling. Another close shave for Bakes.

Johnny World is now $415K richer after this HORSE score. Hennigan has now won over $7.2 million playing tournaments in his lifetime. He's won an unspecified amount hustling in pool halls.

Robert Campbell, from Australia, bubbled off the final table in ninth place.

Notables who cashed in this event included... Jake Schwartz (10th), Carol Fuchs (11th), Robert Mizrachi (12th), Anthony Zinno (13th), Illya Trincher (14th), Jean Gaspard (15th), Katherine Fleck (16th), Ryan Miller (17th), Joe Couden (18th), Mike Gorodinsky (19th), Phillip Wallace (20th), Stuart Rutter (21st), Richard Bai (22nd), Andrew Barber (23rd), Bobby Bellande (24th), and Aditya Prasetyo (25th).

Event #24 THE MARATHON - Final Results


The Marathon. Five days. 100-minute blind levels. A true grind.

I'm highly critical of gimmick events disgusted as a cash grab, but the Marathon is an A+ event in my book. I only wish it were a little longer! Like 2-hour levels and playing 16-hour days.

I'd love to create a hybrid event that's partial Matt Savage's Ironman event at Commerce and the Marathon. Like, make it a true test of strength and stamina and run it until a final table, with a 90-min break every 8 hours... then everyone gets an 8-hour nap to freshen up before the final table. Or how about 15-hour days with only a 60-minute dinner break and then a final table that plays out to its conclusion with NO day break.

Michael Addamo cut his teeth on the APPT with a couple notable deep runs in Macau and Melbourne.

Addamo was still a 21-year old WSOP newbie when he made his debut at the Rio in Las Vegas in the summer of 2016. Addamo made a big splash with 7 cashes that year including one final table appearance. Addamo took third in a donkament for nearly $196K, which marked his largest cash to date.

Last summer, Addamo cashed eight times with another final table, including a third place finish in an online event. Addamo went deep in the Main Event, but busted in 134th place.

And this summer? Addamo had not cashed in any events...until he went the distance in the Marathon.

Tough final table. I'd hate to see Martin Jacobson or Cate Hall sitting to my left... and both were among the final nine, along with Taylor Paur and Belgian pro Bart Lybaert.

Cate Hall came into the final table as one of the short stacks. She managed to avoid getting picked off first, but she couldn't avoid a bustout in eighth place. Hall hinted that this would probably be her final WSOP event (besides the Main Event) as a "pro" before she returns to the legal world.

2014 WSOP Main Event Champ Martin Jacobson bounced in fifth place. Bart Lybaert's run ended in third place.

Addamo beat Mark Sleet heads-up for the victory. Sleet earned $403,870 for a runner-up score. Not too shabby, eh?

Addamo banked $653,581 for the win. He's now got $2 million in career earnings and rocketed into the Top 15 on the all-time Aussie money list.

Much like his American counterparts, Addamo is an online exile after the Aussie government ko'd online poker. Addamo recently relocated to Thailand to continue the online grind, but he's no stranger to the live circuit either.

Sameer Aljanedi bubbled off the final table in tenth place.

Notables who went deep in the Marathon included... Faraz Jaka, Scotty Nguyen, Lee Markholt, Matt Affleck, David Lopez, Marvin Rettenmaier, Viet Vo, David Levi, Chris Moorman, and Kristen Bicknell.

Familiar names who cashed in the Marathon included... Jon Turner, Jesse Sylvia, Dan Feldmann, Tommy Vu, Andre Akkari, Joon Kim, Yin Liu, Eric Baldwin, Chance Kornuth, Billy Jennings, Josh Jackson, Zinan Xu, David Simon, Dick Phelps, Tony Ruberto, and Joe Teanotoga.
