John Hesp - WSOP Main event - LIVING THE DREAM

Postby The Fox » Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:01 am


Every poker player wants to play the ultimate Tournament...The main event of the World Series of Poker.

John Hesp from Bridlington is actually doing it with an incredible run and is now in the last 27 currently sitting 6th in chips and with a minimum cash 0f over £200,000 guaranteed and a dream of glory may well await.

Full report for Day 6 can be found HERE viewtopic.php?f=39&t=46341&p=426022#p426022

Here is the extract form the WSOP Blog outlining John's story so far.

John Hesp Back in the Hunt

Affable Englishman John Hesp has become the talk of the Main Event. The recreational player from Bridlington, U.K., has never played at the WSOP and never even played a large tournament. He has only $2,207 in tournament winnings with all his final table appearances (and his only recorded win) at Napoleon's Casino & Restaurant in Hull, U.K.

The 64-year-old retired business owner spoke with PokerNews at the afternoon break about his run through the field. He's been featured on the ESPN2 and PokerGO broadcasts, and has now been moved to the feature tables. What has it been like adjusting to the bright lights and cameras?

"I've no problem with the broadcast tables, the problem I've got is the shortness of the breaks," he says. "There's no time to do anything really."

Hesp's amazing run is now garnering plenty of attention with media interviews a regular part of his break schedule. He's had a great run of cards over the few hours, and now sits on just over 9 million chips after some big hands and shrewd play.

"I've been really riding hot," Hesp says. "I started pretty weak. I went down and now I've come back again."
