Daniel Dvoress Wins Online High Roller Poker Tournament For $394,852

The WSOP Bracelet Winner From Canada Took Down The GG Super MILLION$ $10,300 Buy-In Weekly Event For His Latest Six-Figure Payday


Daniel Dvoress has more than $18 million in recorded tournament cashes. The Canadian high-stakes regular won his first bracelet during the 2020 World Series of Poker Online, defeating a field of 6,299 entries in the Millionaire Maker event to win $1,489,289. Dvoress added to his impressive resume this week by taking down the recurring weekly high-stakes online tournament known as the GGPoker Super MILLION$. Dvoress came out on top in the latest running of the $10,300 buy-in event, besting a field of 191 entries and a tough final table to win $394,852.

The final day began with $525 satellite winner ‘McDavid97’ holding the chip lead, with Dbvoress in second and World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour champion Mike Watson in third place. 2014 Aussie Millions main event champion Ami Barer was the first player to hit the virtual rail at the final table, running pocket tens into the pocket aces of Guillaume Nolet. An ace on the flop gave Nolet an even larger lead, and a blank on the turn let Barer drawing dead. He earned $61,387 as the ninth-place finisher. Nolet earned a second knockout when his A-Q outran the K-J of Idris Ambraisse to eliminate Moroccan player in eighth place ($77,468).

Mike WatsonDvoress secured his first elimination of the day when he shoved into a pair of short stacks in the blinds from the button with JHeart Suit8Heart Suit. Watson called with pocket sevens from the small blind, but was unable to win the race. Dvoress made two pair on the turn to bust Watson in seventh place ($97,761).

Nolet continued to play the grim reaper at the final table, winning a battle of the blinds against Fabrice Touil. Nolet shoved with AClub SuitKHeart Suit from the small blind and Touil called with QDiamond Suit9Club Suit. Neither player improved and Touil settled for $123,370 as the sixth-place finisher.

2019 WSOP main event 21st-place finisher Preben Stokkan’s run in this event came to an end when his AClub SuitQHeart Suit failed to beat out the KDiamond Suit2Club Suit of Dvoress, who shoved from the cutoff after chip leader Nolet had folded. Stokkan called and was ahead preflop, but Dvoress paired his deuce on the flop and held from there to eliminate Stokkan in fifth place ($155,688).

With that hand, Dvoress essentially moved into a tie for the lead with Nolet. The latter player lost a few all-in against the two shorter stacks at the table to fall all the way to the bottom of the leaderboard. In his final hand he called a small-blind shove from ‘DaiMin141319’ with KDiamond SuitQClub Suit in the big blind. ‘DaiMin141319’ held the JDiamond Suit10Diamond Suit, and flopped top pair with an open-ended straight draw. Nolet never connected with the board and was knocked out in fourth place, earning $196,472 for his strong showing.

‘McDavid97’ was left as the short stack after Nolet’s departure. They got their last chips in ahead with AClub SuitKSpade Suit against the KHeart Suit10Spade Suit of ‘DaiMin141319’. The board ran out QDiamond Suit6Heart Suit4Heart Suit10Club Suit5Diamond Suit and ‘DaiMin141319’ made a pair of tens to send ‘McDavid97’ to the virtual rail with $247,939. The Canadian player won his way into this event in a $525 satellite, and ended up cashing for nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

Dvoress held a slight chip lead to start heads-up play. He fell behind early in the match, but regained the lead when his KHeart SuitQHeart Suit beat out the QDiamond Suit9Diamond Suit of his opponent on a QClub Suit7Heart Suit7Club Suit6Diamond Suit4Club Suit board. That win gave Dvoress roughly a 2:1 chip lead.

The board ran out 9Club Suit3Heart Suit3Diamond Suit7Heart Suit9Spade Suit and Dvoress’ ace high was enough to earn him the pot and the title. ‘DaiMin141319’ was awarded $312,889 as the runner-up finisher.
