Pedersen Latest WPT Millionaire - Banks $2 Mil By Winning Five Diamond

Rehne Pedersen is the latest WPT millionaire, besting Day 1 chip leader Patrik Antonius for the title.

Pedersen is a relative newcomer to the tournament scene.  He cashed twice at this year's WSOP, including a 233rd in the Main Event.  But he's had no previous result close to this.

Doyle Brunson went out in third.  He had the chip lead three-handed, but lost two big pots in a five minute span.  First, he moved all-in with A-6 against Patrik Antonius's A-9. Antonius's hand held.  Then a few minutes later, he moved all-in with K-J. This time, Rehne Pedersen held K-K. Doyle failed to improve and was eliminated.

J.J. Lui, a woman, entered the final table with the chip lead but left in fourth place.

Final results and payouts are: 1) Rehne Pedersen - $2,078,185, 2) Patrik Antonius - $1,046,470, 3) Doyle Brunson - $563,485, 4) Joanne 'J.J.' Liu $362,140, 5) Darrell Dicken $241,495, 6) Phil "the Unabomber" - Laak $160,995.
