John Dolan is typically known for his big WSOP finish in 2010, but around here we also know him as the reigning Coco Poker Open Champion. He made the 2010 WSOP Main Event November Nine final table and finished in sixth place for a cool $1.7 million. (Also at that final table was Florida poker legend John Racener).

Dolan outlasted 418 other entrants in the 2014 Coco Poker Open Championship to take the title after a three-way deal and holding most of the chips in play. He earned $219,000 for his efforts and wouldn’t mind going back-to-back in a few days.

Also on Dolan’s list of results are three other WSOP final tables, one WSOP Circuit ring, and a runner-up finish in the 2012 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship.
