Seventh final table appearance in the GGPoker High Roller ends in victory for Dvoress

Daniel Dvoress strikes a regular presence in the GGPoker Super MILLION$. Week after week, Dvoress persists as a top contender to make a deep run in the weekly $10,300 buy-in High Roller tournament.

Episode 48 of the Super MILLION$ marked Dvoress’ seventh final table run in GGPoker’s flagship event, and ended in a championship for the player. The Canadian all-time great took down the $2 million guaranteed tournament for $394,852, as the latest edition of perhaps poker’s most prestigious weekly tournament finished up Tuesday.

Already owning one of the game’s top tournament resumes, Dvoress can add a Super MILLION$ championship to his list of accomplishments. Some of the other accolades on that list include a Super High Roller Bowl championship, a Super High Roller Bowl Online win, and a WSOP bracelet.

Dvoress’ stands at $15.9 million in career live earnings, putting him in the top 50 in the Hendon Mob’s all-time tournament cash list. With Tuesday’s win, Dvoress now claims more than $1.3 million in earnings in the Super MILLION$.

New names at the final table, but a familiar face tops the field

The Super MILLION$ generally draws a final table filled with some of the toughest competition in the game. That certainly help true again in Episode 48, with names like former Super MILLION$ champion Guillaume Nolet (4th - $196,472), Mike Watson (7th - $97,761) and Ami Barer (9th - $61,387) finding seats among the final nine.

Three-handed play, however, pitted Dvoress against a pair of relative newcomers, known only by their online screen names.

‘McDavid97’ (3rd - $247,939) entered Tuesday’s final table as the tournament chip leader, and rode that big stack to a third-place finish.

While we don’t know the true identity of the Canada-based player, ‘McDavid97’ now has two Super MILLION$ final table appearances to his credit, and more than $1.1 million in career winnings at GGPoker. ‘McDavid97’ qualified for Super MILLION$ Episode 48 via a $525 satellite, turning that into a nearly quarter-million dollar payday.

Dvoress topped ‘DaiMin141319’ (2nd - $312,889) in the heads-up duel for the championship. Playing from UAE, ‘DaiMin141319’ cashed for the first time in four Super MILLION$ appearances.

Other final table finishers included top players like Preben Stokkan (5th - $155,688), Fabrice Stokkan (6th - $123,370), and Idris Ambraisse (8th - $77,468).

The Super MILLION$ begins every Sunday at GGPoker, with the final table played each Tuesday. Poker’s most prestigious weekly tournament plays out alongside the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series , which runs throughout May at GGPoker.
