Daniel Dvoress is one of the most successful professional online poker players from Canada, but he’s been missing an important accomplishment on his resume – until now. In this year’s WSOP Millionaire Maker, the pro has won his first-ever World Series of Poker bracelet, along with a sumptuous $1.4 million payday.
The 2020 WSOP Millionaire Maker
This year’s Millionaire Maker in the World Series of Poker had a $1,500 buy-in and featured a $5,000,000 guarantee. By the time all 6,299 entries were finalized, the guarantee was smashed, reaching an impressive $8,976,075 prize pool.
Those landing in the top 764 places each received a payout. The min-cash was worth $2,115, and the final table payouts were as follows:
|2||Caio De Almeida||$1,072,428|
|6||Neville Endo Costa||$288,356|
Action on the Final Table
Dvoress went into the final table as the chip leader. Even though he only had 30 big blinds, over half the table had less than 10. This saw the final table thinning out very quickly.
What’s remarkable about his win is that Dvoress was single-handedly responsible for eliminating all but two of the final table players.
- Neville Endo Costa was eliminated in 6th place with Js6d against Dvoress’ Ad8h on a Jh9s9cJc9h board.
- Alejandro Caridad was eliminated in 5th place with QsKc against Dvoress’ pocket 8s
- Michael Nugent was eliminated in 4th with 5c4d against Ad2c
- Anatoly Filatov was eliminated in 3rd with AsKh against pocket 5s
When it came down to heads-up play, it was Caio De Almeida against Dvoress, who had a 4-to-1 chip lead. Their head-to-head only last two hands, as De Almeida had only five big blinds when he shoved pre-flop with Kd8d. Dvoress called with KhQs on a board that came down 6c5d3c7h3h.
