Amateur poker player John Hesp is having a blast at the World Series of Poker. He's never read a poker book, had professional coaching or watched training videos, but he somehow made it into the Main Event Final table.

The 64-year-old Englishman is one of the rare amateurs making such a deep run and he’s already guaranteed a minimum of $1 million. 

“I have had so much fun and I am living the dream,” Hesp said of his WSOP participation thus far. 

This is the first poker tournament he has played of this size.  Watch below for more of the interview.
