Stephen Graner secures the chiplead seat of the Millionaire Maker event - WSOP 2014
The second edition of the $ 1,500 Millionaire Maker event has attracted a record number of participants in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) history. 7,977 players were registered on the first day of this poker tournament, that is, the second record in WSOP history in terms of attendance. The WSOP 2006 Main Event remains the No.1 with its 8,773 entrants. In fact, nearly 8,000 players have come together in the poker room of Rio, but only nine of them managed to hold on till the final table. The winner will leave Las Vegas with a check of over $ 1.3 million. At present, the ongoing final table has not had its headliner yet, but Stephen Graner could be the No.1 regarding the enormity of his chips in hands. He actually has a stack three times higher than those of other finalists. However, we should not underestimate Maurice Hawks; the latter has won $ 1.1 million of cash in the circuit so far.
Indeed, Stephen Graner is the chipleader in this final table of the Event#8 - WSOP Millionaire Maker. His huge stack includes12,005,000 chips. His main rivals are far behind with less than 5 million chips: James Duke (4,645,000), Andrew Teng (4,375,000), Andrew Dick (4,185,000), Bradley Anderson (3,850,000), Jonathan Dimmig (2,870,000), Maurice Hawkins (1,960,000), Jeffrey Coburn (1,660,000) and Jason Johnson (1,245,000).
