Jonathan Dimmig Wins 2014 World Series of Poker Millionaire Maker

New York State native Jonathan Dimmig has become the latest poker millionaire after winning the 2014 WSOP Millionaire Maker event.

He bested the 2nd biggest player field in World Series of Poker tournament history to win $1,319,587 in the $1500 buy-in Millionaire Maker.

"My goal on the first day was just to make it through the day, " Dimmig said afterward.  "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."
He was pleased to make his family and friends back in Buffalo proud.

"I played hockey all my life and, as everyone knows, I'm from Buffalo," Dimmig said.  "The Sabres have never won a championship, the Bills have never won a championship, so I'm proud to bring a little piece of championship-ness to the city, because where I'm from is really a great city."

Here are the final table results from the Millionaire Maker event:

1st: Jonathan Dimmig - $1,319,587

2nd: Jeff Coburn - $815,963

3rd: James Duke - $614,368

4th: Andrew Teng - $465,972

5th: Bradley Anderson - $355,913

6th: Stephen Graner - $273,854

7th: Jason Johnson - $211,394

8th: Andrew Dick - $164,118

9th: Maurice Hawkins - $128,150
