Following a day where no bracelets were handed out, yesterday's session saw three new champions crowned.
First to taste the sweet nectar of success was Jonathan Dimmig. Having made his way through the second largest live tournament field in history, Dimmig faced a tough final test as he squared off against the UK's Andrew Teng on the final table of the Millionaire Maker. For regulars on the European circuit Teng's name will be a familiar one but despite having the support of the rail he could only muster a fourth place finish. Indeed, after watching the demise Andrew Dick and Jason Johnson, Teng found himself running low on chips and forced to move all-in a number of times. After a series of folds his bullish strategy was finally undone after his Qc 9c failed to make it past Dimmig's pocket deuces. Despite taking the lead on a Qh Jd 4h flop, the 2d gave Dimming an unbeatable set and set Teng to the rail to collect his $465,972. Having caused the demise of his toughest opponent, Dimmig was able to parlay that success into a run which would ultimately see him eliminate Jeffrey Coburn in second to collect his first bracelet and $1.3 million. As Dimming and his crew celebrated his momentous win, across the Rio Jeff Smith and Brock Parker were etching their names into the WSOP's history books. While Smith was ousting Danny Nguyen to bank $323,125 in Event #9, Parker was able to come through a tricky final table in the $10K Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship to claim his third bracelet. Having seen off the likes of Dan Kelly and Douglas Polk, Parker eventually overcame Richard Ashby heads-up to secure another title and $443,407. Image courtesy of WSOP.com.
