The Millionaire Maker played down to its champion. Event #19 $1,500 NL Milly Maker attracted 8,809 runners and a prize pool that almost topped $11.9 million. John Gorsuch unleashed a sick comeback and outlasted the massive field for a score worth $1,344,930. Rami Boukai won his second bracelet with a win in Event #23 $1,500 8-Game Mix.

Busy hump day at the Rio in Las Vegas with multiple events playing down to a champion including the highly-popular running of the donks known as the Milly Maker. The winner gets at least a cool million as terms of this clever marketing scheme cooked up by suits in a boardroom somewhere. This year's Milly Maker banked $1.3M for almost a week of work, which isn't that bad all things considered.

Along the way a few other bracelets were awarded in 8-Game, DOUBLESTACK NL, and DEEPSTACK PLO.

DOUBLESTACK played down from 3,253 to a champion and LA's Jorden Fox snatched up his first bracelet.

Andrew Donabedian won his first bracelet when he shipped the DEEPSTACK PLO for $205K. He outlasted a final table that included the one and only Capt. Tom Franklin.

Back in 2009, Rami Boukai won a HA bracelet (PLH and PLO). He waited a full decade to win a second bracelet with a sweet score in Event #23 8-Game. Boukai also denied Chainsaw Kessler his first bracelet.
