Daniel Dvoress Wins 2020 WSOP Online MILLIONAIRE MAKER
Daniel Dvoress is among the world’s most successful poker players, with more than $15 million in total live earnings, but for a long time, his impressive resume did not include one of poker’s most highly-coveted trinkets – a World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet.
That has now changed after the Canadian poker pro triumphed in Event #48: $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER at the ongoing WSOP Online Bracelet Series on GGPoker.
Dvoress managed to outclass a massive field of 6,299 players to ship a cool $1,489,289 in first-place prize and is now a WSOP bracelet winner. Dvoress may have been a member of the “best player without a bracelet” club for quite a while, but unlike the other poker elites sharing the same title, the high roller pro never really chased for the in-demand award.
While the world’s most accomplished players flock to Las Vegas each year to compete for a bracelet, Dvoress usually devotes his summer schedule for other worthwhile activities outside of poker, concentrating on health, fitness, and outdoor adventures. But everything changed when COVID-19 happened. An online WSOP festival gave Dvoress that unique opportunity to take a shot at winning his maiden bracelet, and he did so in epic fashion!
WSOP Online MILLIONAIRE MAKER Final Table Results
The final table kicked off with Dvoress as the chip leader, with five players each competing with lower than 10 big blinds. With most of the finalists embarking on a short stack journey, the shortest of them eventually had to leave the game early, including Lithuanian Aneris “TaiwanNumba1” Adomkevicius who finished ninth for $107,671, and Tomasz “SushiJanushi” Cybulski of Poland who finished eighth for $149,523.
Switzerland’s Ronny Kaiser busted in seventh place with $207,644 in earnings and from that point Dvoress put his dominance on display, successfully eliminating every single opponent left at the table – the first of them was Brazil’s Neville “NevSlater” Endo Costa who ended his bid in sixth place for $288,356, followed by Argentinian Alejandro “pepealas” Caridad who finished fifth for $400,412.
Dvoress went on to finish off fellow Canadian Michael “MrFabulous” Nugent (4th, $556,095), and Russia’s Anatoly “MrDeer” Filatov (3rd, $772,251).
Dvoress dominated the final table from start to finish. The only time his lead had been challenged was during a hand against eventual runner-up Caio “Ez4ENCE” De Almeida of Brazil, who doubled up quickly in the early stages of heads-up action.
However, the Canadian was keen on leaving a mark and retaliated by winning four straight hands which led him to victory. Not a bad result for De Almeida though, as he still walked away as a millionaire, with $1,072,428 in winnings.
