Germany's Arne Kern earned $1,173,223 and his first WSOP bracelet in a massive 7,361-entry event. 

Kern claimed the win by coming from behind during three-handed play against UK/Philippines pro Samad Hazavi and 2015 WSOP Main Event champion Joe McKeehen. The 26-year-old from Kilvery, Germany, had only two cashes at the WSOP before this win, the first coming in this same event one year ago. His $1.17 million triumph here was more than 20 times his previous global career tournament earnings.

Other Notables:
Among the those cashing in the Millionaire Maker were Manig Loeser (17th, $51,188), James Mackey (18th, $51,188), Joseph Cheong (23rd, $40,898), JC Tran (42nd, $26,713), Eddy Sabat (49th, $21,839), Steve Sung (59th, $17,995), Jason Strasser (63rd, $17,995), Wendy Freedman (71st, $14,944), James Dempsey (78th, $12,508), Elio Fox (92nd, $8,976), and Greg Merson (94th, $8,976).
