Jonathan Dimmig

Today is supposed to be the last scheduled day for the record-breaking Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em here at the 2014 WSOP, but due to the massive field size with an astonishing 7,977 entries in total, a fourth day to determine the winner seems likely.

Yuliyan Kolev and Jonathan Dimmig are tied for the chip lead currently, having each accumulated 632,000 chips thus far with Bart Lybaert (615,000) hot on their heels. Other big names still left include Sean Prendiville (520,000), James Mackey (387,000), Andrew Teng (351,000), Dwyte Pilgrim (274,000), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (239,000), Andrew "BalugaWhale" Seidman (229,000), Allen Kessler (183,000), and Greg Mueller (107,000).
