The sixth Super High Roller Bowl has come to an end, and Daniel Dvoress emerged as the winner, topping the field of 51 entries, and claiming the first prize of $4,080,000.
The extravaganza event has been taking place for six consecutive years, and the location was set to Baha Mar in the Bahamas. The event was hosted for the first time as being a part of the popular partypoker’s Caribbean Poker Party.
Dvoress’s First Time Making The Cash List
Dvoress is a professional poker player, but despite his skills, he actually never had a chance to make it to the cash list in any of the Super High Roller Bowls. However, it seems that his time has come and that he decided to take things seriously.
The money he managed to earn is the single biggest amount in his career, and it immediately made him a member of the top 40 poker players in the all-time tournament money list. In other words, he has officially become an elite poker player due to his amazing performance at Super High Roller Bowl VI.
The road to victory was not easy, however. In his struggle to win the SHRB VI, Dvoress had to face some of the best players in the world, including the legendary high-stakes player Erik Seidel, as well as Justin Bonomo, who has won the event two times.
In other words, the competition was very tough, but the player from Canada managed to emerge victorious in the end.
The Final Table Results
At the time the final table was formed, Dvoress was only fifth in chips, but he managed to work his way up and win the event. He had a great start at the final table as he immediately managed to win a big hand by facing Jason Koon.
While Dvoress had been doing pretty well and slowly gaining control over the final table, some of his opponents weren’t as lucky. In fact, the two-time winner of the event, Bonomo, was the first one to hit the rail after falling to run a huge bluff on Seidel. Bonomo busted eighth and won a total of $510,000.
The next player to go out was another player from the US, Koon, who previously lost a lot of chips to Dvoress. Koon took home the total sum of $637,500.
Sixth place was reserved for Steve O’Dwyer, the legendary player from Ireland, who ended with $765,000 in his pocket. Fifth place was occupied by Seth Davies for $1,020,000, and Seidel ended up fourth, earning $1,275,000 along the way.
The last player to hit the rail before the heads-up part of the tournament was Kathy Lehne, who managed to snatch a total of $1,785,000.
Heads-up play saw Wai Leong Chan, a poker pro from Malaysia, facing the experienced Canadian player. Dvoress proved to be better and sent Chan to the rail with $2,677,500.
