2018 WSOP: Event #21: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER won by Arne Kern for $1.1 Million

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Arne Kern, Samad Razavi.
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2018 by "T".

Attracting a field of 7,361 total player entries, the third biggest field in the event's 6-year history, this year's WSOP #21 $1,500 buy-in NLHE Millionaire Maker created a huge prize pool of $9,937,350.

The one who ended up with the lion's share was given to Arne Kern of Germany, who earned his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet and the sweet pot of $1,173,223. A 26-year-old student, Kern has won the biggest score of his career as a poker player, and this win amount is actually 40 times bigger than any other live tourney cash he had previously made.

With 17 players remaining, Kern entered the final day of the event as 11th in chip position. The humongous field included some recognizable names in poker who made it to day 4 of the event including the likes of 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series main event champ Manig Loeser, 2013 WSOP Circuit $365 NLHE Event #6 champion Ralph Massey, two-time bracelet winner Barny Boatman, and 2015 WSOP $3K 6-max NLHE champion Justin Liberto.

The final heads-up match saw Sam Razavi versus Arne Kern, and in the end the title and the pot went to Kern as he made a flush draw.

This german Arne Kern is a happy man, in this moment of glory, because he won a big sum and a nice WSOP bracelet. Has made a very good tournament and ended the game with a flush draw. He will remain with some beautiful memories. Congratulations for Arne K. because he managed to beat 7,361 players and to win this tournament.

Like the tournament name specifies. Millionaire maker.
For only 1500 USD buy in the winner got a bit more than one million.
This is what you call an investment, with a great return
And the buy in is not huge, so we can assume the whole lot is his, with no action
given to others Smile

to put an event where you are millionaire of the day for that reason yes and what the poker provides and what makes this sport can be so wonderful because you can achieve even not being a professional player

Arne Kern is my new name in the poker world and his remarkable win is of course very cool .... if he could win such a good tournament then I think I will hear his name many times again in connection with new victories in new tournaments .... nice that there are new millionaires

What a massive event this was with over 7,000 entries and well done to the winner for outlasting them all. It was particularly nice to see the great Barny Boatman making another final table

well actually I have never heard of any of those dudes at the final table, but have to agree with some of the comments above me written by fellow mobbits and mobbelittos that to turn 1.5k into 1.1 million of dollaros is quite an achievement.
