Biography

John Monnette is an American poker player. Over his career he has won four World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and has amassed over $3 million in live tournament cashes as of October 2021.

Nicknamed "Angry" owing to a habit of berating dealers and making his frustrations known to the entire poker room during his early 20s, Monnette is a mixed game specialist, with all four bracelets coming in different non-NLHE formats.

Monnette's first WSOP cash came in 2005, and would make two final tables including a second-place finish in 2009. However, he would have to wait until 2011 for his first bracelet, which came in Event #23: $2,500 8-Game. That victory netted Monnette $278,144, more than double his previous largest live cash.

Between 2013 and 2016, Monnette would finish inside the top 10 on nine occasions, before finally clinching his third WSOP bracelet in 2017. He showed his mixed game skills once again, winning Event #22: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw for $256,610.
