Manny Minaya was the first player to one million chips and had a dominate chip lead most of the day. But in the end he settles for a six-way chop of the nearly $75,000 remaining prize pool.

Minaya is a Seminole Hard Rock Tampa regular who has nearly $1.4 million in recorded live tournament cashes.

Minaya earns $14,482,  his third cash of the series, including 5th place ($3,000) in Event 4  and a 41st place finish ($1,156) in Event 1.

This five figure score gives Minaya more than $18,000 in total earnings in the Summer Poker Open after chopping with Woodrow Pass, Cris Tuchman, Anthony Lee, Mohamed Maghraoui and Jacob Naumann.
