PabloMillyMaker

The Milly Maker attracted over 7.7K donks, er runners. The total prize pool passed $10.4 million with $1.2 million set aside for first place.

The French-Canadian Pablo Mariz already went deep once at the 2017 WSOP, but he was a runner-up in a tag team Event #10. Alas, he got another shot at the bling, albeit a solo shot, but he did not waste this opportunity. Mariz defeated American D.J. Alexander heads-up for the bracelet and the pyramid of cash.

Mariz left his job in finance to purse poker as a living. He was previously grinding it out online before this remarkable score at the Rio.

A pair of Irish players made the final table, but Yuriy Boyko busted in sixth place and Marc MacDonnell went out in fourth place. Brazil's Thiago Grigoletti went deep, but was dunzo in eighth place.

Notables who went deep included... Freddy Banyadi, Kevin O'Donnell, Kenny Haellert, Lisa Hamilton, Jessica Dawley, Matt Affleck, Joe Cada, and Bryan Piccioli.

ShaneBuchwShaneBuchWins

Old school. LHE! Remember how to play that? Okay, now make it a tournament. It's weirder than you think, especially in this era of NL and mixed-games (of the non-LHE format).

Shane Buchwald is the Limit Master after he won his first-ever bracelet in Event #24. The American from Santa Fe, New Mexico moved to Brazil to play online poker full time. Buchwald is one of the numerous American exiles who had to move overseas to pursue his passion and his career. The time away from home grinding always tests the soul. But after a 26-hour flight(s) Buchwald made his return to America a triumphant won with a victory in Event #24. Ironically, Buchwald had signed up for culinary school because he was thinking about life outside of poker. He always wanted to be a chef, and now he has some starter money to help him pursue his dream.

Buchwald faded a field of 616 LHE enthusiasts. He shipped a first place payday worth $178K.

Buchwald's final table included Sandy Tayi, Ray Henson, Shane Fumerton, and Nancy Nguyen.

Notables who went deep... Jesse Martin, Barry Greenstein, Alex Luneau, Mike Reed, Ian Johns, Paul-François Tedeschim Adrien Allain, Esther Taylor-Brady, Georgios Sotiropoulos, Otto Richard, John Racener, Ronnie Bardah, ZeeJustin, and Andrey Zaichenko.
