The Players Championship 2014 Final got underway on Thursday at 2 pm PST (5 pm EST).

This event featured a $50,000 buy-in.  Ultimately it was John Hennigan who walked away the winner. 

The man known as Johnny World was final tabling this event for the second time in a row. After taking 12th in the 2012 PPC, Hennigan finished in third place last year, collecting over $685,000. Hennigan was heads-up for what would have been his third bracelet earlier this summer, but he lost to Ted Gillis in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event.

All other player profiles of those who made the final table are featured below courtesy of WSOP.com.

Brandon Shack-Harris – It is a name you’ve read dozens of times if you’ve been following this year’s WSOP at all. This newly-minted bracelet winner is now at his fourth final table of the summer with a shot at overtaking George Danzer for the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race.

Abe Mosseri – A bracelet winner and highly revered cash game player in the biggest mixed games, Mosseri started Thursday as chip leader and never saw his stack dip dangerously low all day. While most of his cashes come in big bet games and his bracelet is in Triple Draw, this is actually his first Poker Players Championship event final table. His best finish in this tournament prior to this year is 11th in 2010.

Frank Kassela – Our 2010 WSOP Player of the Year is the only person in this line-up with that title. He was going for what could have been his third bracelet in his first-ever PPC cash.  Better luck next time.

Chun Lei Zhou – This is the first-ever WSOP cash for Chun Lei Zhou of Macau. The young player was the only non-American at the table and started eight-handed play at the bottom of the counts, but slowly worked his way up to end play in the middle of the pack.

Jesse Martin – Yet another bracelet winner, Martin won his bracelet in the $10,000 2-7 Single Draw event just last year. This was his first cash in the Poker Players Championship.

Melissa Burr – Like Brandon Shack-Harris, Melissa Burr is having a breakout summer. This would be her third final table appearance and fourth top ten finish. Moreover, she has also done something no woman has been able to do in this event prior to today—cash.

Allen Kessler – The man they call Chainsaw has been at WSOP final tables before, but never in this event. Of those final table appearances, three are second place finishes and none are bracelet victories.
