Canadian player Daniel Dvoress won his first GGPoker Super MILLION $ title by beating the final table with poker legends like Mike 'SirWatts' Watson, Ami Barer and Guillaume Nolet to win the crown.
Let's look back at another dramatic conclusion to our favorite weekly online tournament of $ 10, 05 0 buy-in and tons of excitement every time it takes place.
Two Canadian legends beat early
It was Ami Barer who became the first player to leave the action in 9 place when his decent sixth starting position at the start saw him overtaken by three others ahead of his engines. it started.
Barer's pocket tens raise led to Guillaume Nolet's pocket aces, and Nolet's 3-bet was a sh led by Barer and happily called. Nolet even managed to flop an ace for the top set and Barer was dead 4 th street, earning for $ 069, 387, but on the queue.
Next on the list was Moroccan player Idris Ambraisse, who moved all in with Jack King was doomed to fail when Nolet called again with ace and queen and the queen on the flop dealt damage.
The early exits are not over either. Mike Watson fell victim to a duel across Canada when he lost to his fellow countryman Daniel Dvoress, who moved all-in with a jack-eight and was called off by Watson with pocket sevens. An eight on the flop and a jack on the turn led Watson to play $ 97,761, and the field was reduced to six.
Nolet goes from hero to zero
There were five Canadian players out of the nine finalists, and it seemed destiny would win one of them. It looked like Guillaume Nolet for a while, but he went from being a lead on the pitch to running out of chips in just a few big hands.
it would be Fabrice Touil, who fell into the 6 th 1st place $ 123, 370, his shove dam-nine from the big blind was called by ace-king Nolet and also a loser.
The Norwegian Preben Stokkan was next on the sidelines. If you've never seen Stokkan in action, then you have missed one of the most attacking players in poker, who is a frequent leader at the end of day one in many live tournaments. He was unable to go further than 5 th place ($ 155, 688) to his sadness as his ace-queen called Dvoress's super aggressive move with a king-two turned out to be correct, but the flop was bad as the two saw Stokkan's bad luck given his excellent call. but it wasn't. He cashed in for $ 196,472 when he lost three key hands to prove how dangerous No Limit Hold'em is in the Form Tournament. Usually everyone has two or three hands on the door, and that's what happened when the queen-king lost to a pair of sixes before the queen-king lost again, this time to an ace-eight. As if to prove that it must have been unfortunate for the third time, Nolet moved all-in again with the king and queen, this time for his tournament life. Against Daniel Dvoress's ten, the latter defeated the stunned Nolet in 4 th place.
Dvoress closes it
From there it was the closing case for Daniel Dvores's victory, and he managed to do so with relative ease when we look at Nolet's failed efforts. The only other Canadian still fighting, McDavid 97 'caught $ 314,939 as his last three big blinds fell from ace-king to king-ten, but his result was amazing and his calm at the final table was understandable. After qualifying for just $ 525, the Canadian player won nearly a quarter of a million dollars - some kind of return.
The hand went the way United Arab Emirates-based DaiMin 141319, who had a marginal one-on-one lead as a result, Dvores held 9.3 million chips against his opponent's 9.7 million.
The tables were dealt in a huge pot where both players floped a queen and Dvoress held the queen-king against her opponent's king-nine. It's a good job, Guillaume Nolet wasn't there to see him win, but Dvoress's kicker led him to victory, and the final hand came when Dvores moved all-in with ace-six and 'DaiMing' called with jack-king.
The ace was good enough to mean 'DaiMing 141319' won a $ 312.889 for second place and Dvoress was the champion, taking the top $ 472.852 for the victory.
