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).
Dvoress secured his first elimination of the day when he shoved into a pair of short stacks in the blinds from the button with J8. 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 AK from the small blind and Touil called with Q9. 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 AQ failed to beat out the K2 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 KQ in the big blind. ‘DaiMin141319’ held the J10, 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 AK against the K10 of ‘DaiMin141319’. The board ran out Q64105 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 KQ beat out the Q9 of his opponent on a Q7764 board. That win gave Dvoress roughly a 2:1 chip lead.
In the final hand, Dvoress shoved from the button with A6 and ‘DaiMin141319’ called from the big blind with KJ. The board ran out 93379 and Dvoress’ ace high was enough to earn him the pot and the title. ‘DaiMin141319’ was awarded $312,889 as the runner-up finisher.
