Posted on 15 June 2017 by "T".

This year's $1,500 buy-in Millionaire Maker event drew a field of 7,759 entries to create a $10,477,350 prize pool. The top 1,165 finishing players in this event received a slice of the massive prize pool and Canada's Pablo Mariz earned $1,221,407 as well as his first gold bracelet for the victory!

Mariz, 27, from Montreal, previous WSOP earnings were $64,300, so the money earned was life-changing to him. Now with a healthy bankroll he plans to play the entire series. Mariz hugged his best friend and playing partner after the victory and told reporters, "it was a dream come true. We come here every year, grinding small events hoping to hit something big and we finally did!"

Among those making deep runs and cashing in this year's Millionaire Maker were Farzad Banyadi (15th), Kevin O'Donnell (16th), Kenny Haellert (17th), Bob Bounahra (21st), Lisa Hamilton (26th), Jessica Dawley (30th), Matt Affleck (31st), Arkady Tsinis (35th), Joe Cada (42nd), and Bryan Piccioli (43rd).

well this just again proves that it doesn't take a huge reputation and a star name to win a major tournament in poker, well leicester city kinda proved this is possible in football too, but these sort of things happen once in a million years in sport and it seems on a weekly basis in poker

There was a new owner of the bracelet and a new million as I understood from this news ... it seems to me that it's good ... the competition in poker should be that not play and win only a limited number of great players ... maybe

One of my cousins, who happens to be a former Navy officer, has been living off military retirement pay. I haven't seen him for a long time. The last time I saw him in person was nearly ten years ago.

1500 $ buy in to win more than a million.
And as expected, what he is planning to do with his winnings?
To play the rest of the tournaments Smile
He better have some bankroll management, and not invest everything he got.
