“It was a high-pressure final table. Iraj (Parvizi) yesterday was really putting everybody on tilt, me especially. The only guy I thought that held it together was David Baker. He played a great tournament in my opinion,” stated Hennigan, according to pokernews.
“It was a good learning experience for me because I was so tilted and kind of fell apart and got saved by the deck really. I had some very lucky situations when I was short, and it’s just a really nice win,” he added.
