2015 WSOP: Adrian Buckley Wins Event #16: MILLIONAIRE MAKER $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Tags: Adrian Buckley MILLIONAIRE MAKER.
Posted on 10 June 2015 by "T".

When the fourth and final day of the Millionaire Maker (the sixth-largest live tournament in poker history) event kicked off, there were only 17 players left from a total of 7,725 entries. Among these 17 players were big names such as Erick Lindgren, Oliver Busquet, Andrew Lichtenberger and Mike Sexton.

There can't been many of the Day 4 players that were worried about or paid any notice to the man, Adrian Buckley, who started with the smallest stack and didn't even have $10k in recorded tournament winnings.

Well, poker is a game in which everything is possible, and remarkably this was the second big WSOP tournament this year that has been won by a player that has never cashed in a WSOP (Las Vegas) event before. Colossus winner Cord Garcia outlasted nearly 23,000 players to finish in the money for the first time, collecting $638,880.

Buckley also had his first payday ($1,277,193) at the WSOP after besting 7,274 other entrants over several days, including the final day that saw so many poker stars returning with much more chips than himself.

At least this event was true to it's name unlike some of the other overhyped counterparts - they really did make a millionaire out of this kid, so now we could count on that the IRS will make a feast on their share of the money and the kid will be lucky if he has 600k left. Might be a little more, lucky poor guy.
