Although originally scheduled as a three-day event, it took all of four to crown a champion in the 2014 World Series of Poker Millionaire Maker event. New York native Jonathan Dimmig made the most of his first ever WSOP cash, banking $1,319,587 for defeating 7,977 players, the second largest live field in poker tournament history.

Dimmig, whose previous best score was for $11,106 in a WSOP Circuit event,
became the first player at this summer’s series to score a seven-figure payday.

“My goal on the first day was just to make it through the day,” said Dimmig. “I’d played the Main Event here all the last three years and never even cashed in that. So coming in, my goal was really to just get the money off my back and just cash. That’s really all I wanted to do.”

A total of 819 players made the money, collecting at least $2,692. The top 12 players all earned at least six-figure paydays. Notables who made deep runs included Jeff Sluzinski (26th), Curt Kohlberg (29th), Brian Yoon (30th), Andrew Seidman (31st), John Racener (42nd), Ted Lawson (53rd), Dwyte Pilgrim (73rd) and Matt Salsberg (81st).

Here is a look at the final table results.
