2014 WSOP Event #8 A $1500 No Limit Hold'em Millionaire Maker

by Joseph Smith Sr.

The World Series of Poker event #8 is a $1,500 buy-in No Limit Hold'em affair that guarantees the winner will collect a minimum of one million dollars hence the added moniker Millionaire Maker.  The 2014 version of this event drew 7,977 entries to become the second largest field ever at a WSOP event.  The largest was the 2006 Main Event that seated 8,773 players.

The eventual winner, Jonathan Dimmig collected not only his million dollars but an aditional $319,587 as a result of the very large field and prize pool totaling $10,768,950.  Dimmig hails from Buffalo, New York where he enjoys playing hockey and working on a novel project.  His best prior cash was a $11,000 oayday in a WSOP Circuit event.  He has never cashed in a WSOP event here in Las Vegas although he has played the Main Event the last three years.  Jonathan Dimmig not only became a millionaire but he also collected his first WSOP gold bracelet.

The final table required almost twelve hours to produce a winner.  All of the players at the table collected six figure money.  Dimmig's win was also the 2014 WSOP's first seven figure payout.  Among the huge field was some well known players including Andy Bloch, Layne Flack, Mike Sexton and Humberto Brenes.  The event paid out to the top 819 finishers.
