John Cynn is an American poker player who won the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event. He defeated a field of 7,874 players and walked away with $8,800,000 after defeating Tony Miles after a heads-up match that lasted for over ten hours.
Cynn's win was made all the more special considering he had finished 11th in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, narrowly missing out on making the November Nine.
