Triton Monte Carlo Wraps Up With Pot-Limit Omaha Victories For Andreanoff and Dvoress

A Look At The Results From The Final Days of the Latest High Roller Festival


More than $75.2 million in total prize money was paid out across the 12 events of the 2023 Triton Super High Roller Series Monte Carlo festival, which wrapped up on Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Salle Des Etoiles at Monte-Carlo Sporting. The first three-quarters of the series consisted of nine no-limit hold’em events, with three pot-limit Omaha tournaments slated for the final stretch of the schedule. One of those closing PLO tournaments saw all-time Triton titles leader Jason Koon earn a record-extending tenth victory on the tour. Below is a look at the results from the other high-stakes PLO events held over the last days of the festival.

Triton Monte Carlo $31,200 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty

Gavin AndreanoffThe first PLO tournament to go off was the $31,200 bounty event. With 74 entries, there was $1,460,000 in prize money up for grabs with 13 making the money. Gavin Andreanoff, an Omaha cash-game specialist from the United Kingdom, collected the final bounty and the title.

The 35-year-old was awarded $387,000 from the main prize pool as the champion, along with $160,000 in bounties. This was Andreanoff’s very first live tournament title and just his second recorded in-the-money finish on the circuit. His first came a few months earlier at the Triton stop in London. He placed sixth in a $26,000 PLO event there for $115,000.

Plenty of big names ran deep in this event, including bracelet winner Dylan Weisman (8th), Tom Dwan (7th), bracelet winner Daniel Dvoress (5th), Triton winner Laszlo Bujtas (4th), and five-time Triton champion and bracelet winner Danny Tang (3rd). Tang was not yet done adding to his 2023 list of accomplishments, though.

Runner-up Quan Zhou earned $178,000 and 392 POY points for his 12th final table of the year. He recently finished fifth in the $125,000 main event at this festival for a career-best score of $1,165,0000. With 5,483 Card Player Player of the Year points, Zhou now sits in 12th place on the POY leaderboard presented by Global Poker.

Triton Monte Carlo $52,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Daniel DvoressThe largest of the three Omaha events was the $52,000 buy-in, which drew 72 entries to create a hefty $3,600,000 prize pool. After two days of four-card action, Canada’s Daniel Dvoress emerged victorious with the title and the top prize of $956,000. The score increased his career earnings to just shy of $29.8 million.

This was Dvoress’ second Triton title, having taken down a $20,000 short deck event at the Cyprus stop earlier this year.

Dvoress has now made 14 final tables in 2023, with more than $4 million in POY earnings accrued along the way. With 4,670 total points, he has moved into 18th place in the standings.

Dvoress was far from the only top POY contender at the final table of this event. Argentina’s Jose ‘Nacho’ Barbero placed third for $439,000 and 476 points. This was his 16th final table, with three titles and nearly $10.3 million in POY earnings on the year. As a result, he leapfrogged Isaac Haxton to move into second place in the rankings heading into the final stretch of the POY race.

Danny Tang backed up his third-place finish in the PLO bounty event with a runner-up showing in this tournament, adding another $664,000 and 595 points to his totals for 2023. With 20 final tables, seven titles, and more than $9.1 million in POY earnings, Tang has claimed the seventh-place spot on the leaderboard.
