The population of a zillion small towns scattered across the world is less than the number of players that took a seat in Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No Limit Hold'em — 7,977. That's a monster sized field to wade through to find a gold bracelet and $1,319,587 in cash waiting for you at the top! Meet Jonathan Dimmig who carved a massive payday out of the $10,768,950 prize pool in the second largest tournament field in poker history!


1Jonathan Dimmig$1,319,587
2Jeffrey Coburn$815,963
3James Duke$614,368
4Andrew Teng$465,972
5Bradley Anderson$355,913
6Stephen Graner$273,854
7Jason Johnson$211,394
8Andrew Dick$164,118
9Maurice Hawkins$128,150

Dimmig wasn't among the chip leaders going into the final table but the last hand in a tournament is the key and that's where history is made and new champions are crowned.

Once Andrew Duke hit the rail in third place, Dimmig doubled up through Jeffrey Coburn and five hands later that fateful last hand hit.

Hand #190: Coburn raised it to 1.5 million. Dimmig called. The {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop sent Dimmig into shove-mode and Dimmig moved all-in and short-stacked Coburn made the call!

Coburn: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Dimmig: {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

The first millionaire at the 2014 WSOP was hinging on two cards to come...Dimmig must have held his breath as the {10-Clubs} hit the turn and his claim to WSOP fame was then hanging on one last card. The {4-Diamonds} on the river sent out a loud cheer from Dimmig's rail. “LET’S GO BUFFALO!”

In an interview with WSOP Media Director Nolan Dalla, Dimmig considered the final table as a “once in a lifetime experience.”

Congratulations, Jonathan! Perhaps you'll have many more of these experiences as you travel through your poker adventures.
