For an amateur is something wonderful. I did not watch his game but I do not think he's even an amateur. You need to know some poker to get to the final table of a big tournament.

Wow 2.6 millions of dollars, this is really so much money that you can change your life. And he is an old guy so this money is really important to him, noe he can make some dreams to become real and I think all people have some dreams that they cannot make real without bigger money.

John Hesp — a married father of four and grandfather of seven — is a likable person with a humble disposition. I am so impressed with the gentlemanly way he comports himself at the table. I wish him all the best of luck in his future endeavors.
