John Hennigan claims his 5th gold bracelet and a nice sum of $414,692 in this year’s WSOP Event #27 $10,000 H.O.R.S.E., after he successfully outlasted a field of 166 players.

The 47-year-old poker pro now is in rank with the likes of Allen Cunningham, Berry Johnston, Daniel Alaei, David Chiu, Gary “Bones” Berland, Jason Mercier, John Juanda, Scotty Nguyen, and Stu Ungar as a five-time WSOP title winner.

Hennigan said when asked after he won his fifth bracelet, “I’m not too preoccupied with it, but it does feel better than four. It makes me think about ‘Saturday Night Live’ where you get that jacket.”

This was Hennigan’s second final table appearance this year, having finished 7th in Event #23 $10,000 no-limit deuce-to-seven lowball draw championship event for $32K that wrapped up a few days before winning this tournament.

Hennigan entered the final day of the event at 3rd in most chips with 16 players left. By the time there were only 8 players remaining, he had slid back to 7th chip position. He climbed up continuously and won a few hands against Albert Daher and Daniel Zack who settled in 6th and 7th place. He scored his first knockout at the final table when he called 2012 WSOP $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw champ Randy Ohel’s all-in on fifth street in seven card stud 8-or-better. The final hands were:

Rany Ohel: (5 of hearts2 of diamonds)6 of clubsAce of clubsJack of diamondsQueen of diamonds(Queen of hearts)

John Hennigan: (7 of diamonds4 of hearts)5 of spades3 of spades7 of clubs6 of hearts(8 of clubs)

Hennigan made a straight and a 7-6 low to win the pot and sent Ohel packing in 5th place.

Meanwhile, Iraj Parvizi spent most of the final table time in the lead, but as play became short-handed, he lost his winning streak. Later on he lost to two-time bracelet winner David ‘Bakes’ Baker, who won successive stud 8-or-better pots off of him to send him to the rail in 4th place.

Baker then knocked out Lee Salem in 3rd place, thus entering a heads-up showdown with Hennigan who had around a 5-to-3 chip advantage. Hennigan managed to extend his lead even more before the action was stopped for the night.

When play resumed on Day 4 of the event, Baker tried his best, but it wasn’t enough as Hennigan finished him off right after a big limit hold’em hand.

horse like some of more less popular especially when we talk about online poker is one of those games I quite enjoy, together with stud and Omaha hi/lo, razz, 5 card draw, 2-7 lowball, badugi. there are indeed many forms of poker that makes the game less boring

Horse is a nice game indeed. Always fun to play a tournament.
Not easy to find a game online though, especially in small poker rooms.
Fifth bracelet for the winner, which is also another one that i have never heard of Smile

John Hennigan wins his fifth gold bracelet and this guy really is one of the very elite in the poker world. These H.O.R.S.E tournaments really show off the players' all round poker skills and you have to be very good to win one

I do not know how to play this game HORSE but i'm not interested. These professionals deal with poker and they always learn these games, that are not popular in poker rooms with except OMAHA. John Hennigan make a great game and win the fifth bracelet. A good achievement.

Easy one. Just google to see the games for it, although it is easy to figure it out,
like H for holdem O for omaha etc.
After that there is a constant rotation from one game to another, and the row is H O R S E.
That is all. Smile

Belated congratulations to John Hennigan, who topped a field of 166 entrants to win the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. tournament in Las Vegas. I believe John was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame the other day. He absolutely deserves recognition of his achievements.
