Jonathan Dimming Wins Event #8: Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

The Millionaire Maker event ($1,500 buy-in) saw a record field of 7,977 entries that created a massive $10,768,950 prize pool! After 4 days of play, including the final table that lasted for 12 hours of play!, Jonathan Dimming from Buffalo, New York, had all the chips in play and received an incredible $1,319,587 along with his first gold bracelet.

Dimming, who's now residing in Las Vegas, quit his full-time job about a year and a half ago when he realised that he could make more money playing poker. He played about 8 WSOP tournaments prior to the The Millionaire Maker event but never scored a single cash. One can just imagine how happy he must be with winning $1,319,587, which is the largest first-place prize so far at the 2014 WSOP!

Final table results:
1st: Jonathan Dimmig - $1,319,587
2nd: Jeff Coburn - $815,963
3rd: James Duke - $614,368
4th: Andrew Teng - $465,972
5th: Bradley Anderson - $355,913
6th: Stephen Graner - $273,854

Brock Parker Wins Event #10: $10,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Low Championship

At the 2009 WSOP Brock Parker made headlines when he won not one but two World Series of Poker gold bracelets in the same week! On Wednesday, he finally managed to win his third bracelet on his seventh final table since winning bracelet #2 five years ago. According to WSOP, it was his first bracelet to come in an event besides Hold'em. Prior to this year, he had only made one WSOP final table in a non-Hold'em event (a PLO tourney in 2011).

Final table results:
1st: Brock Parker - $443,407
2nd: Richard Ashby - $274,019
3rd: Ofir Mor - $198,058
4th: Shirley Rosario - $146,522

6th: Jason Mcpherson - $84,195
7th: Steve Lustig - $65,472
8th: Melissa Burr - $51,768
9th: Dan Kelly - $41,595

Justin Bonomo Wins Event #11: No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed

After two days of intensive play, the final table kicked off on day three and saw Justin Bonomo playing heads-up against Mike Sowers already within the first two hour of play. Bonomo made a come back from more than a 4:1 chip deficit against Sowers to win the top prize of $449,980 and, more importantly, collect his first gold bracelet!

This tournament drew 1,587 players - about 500 more players that last year's event. The top 162 players received a slice of the $2,142,150 prize pool, including Jeff Madsen (117th), David "Bakes" Baker (100th), and Jason Mercier (86th). Below are the final table results:

Bonomo is fucking killing the entire poker circuit just now. Every event he enters he seems to nail it or at least get in to the FT and make a major cash, amazing, apart from Gruissem he is the most in form player.

Justin Bonomo seems to be a really good player.

Although he is still a young man, he has a lot of achievements already!

I am surprised that Justin Bonomo has never won a bracelet before just going to prove it is how difficult it is to win one of these things. These bracelets should be treasured and respected

Really nice to see some records getting crushed keep it up guys, and keep breaking all the records it is so good to see players winning their first bracker and so far this event was wsop was full of surprise for me not much well known players that i can see at the final tables. Cheers gonna enjoy watching the next one now. Greats to Justin to overcome that deficit!

In most other games/sports the people who win the big bucks are generally well known but looking through those lists of winning players there are very few who I recognise.
Which just shows in poker if you have the money to enter a big tournament you stand just as much chance as winning big money as the so called poker greats.
I suppose that is why poker is such an addictive game.

The great players win more frequently than recreational players.

But the great thing about poker is, that even the recreational player can win a big event.

Congratulatiosn to all winners of course, that millionare maker tournament was pretty sick if you ask me!

I mean for a live tournament and for just a 1500 dollars buy in the first prize was almost 1.4 million dollars Big Smile
 ddblt197009/06/2014 09:27:44 GMT
Pretty standart to me, if there is prizepool of 10 million dollars, I expect that the winner takes at least 10% of the prizepool (=over a million)
