Dan Smith got $555 500 for winning High Roller Tournament at WPT Online
Canadian poker players have had a good track record of results during the WPT Online series, which is currently taking place at PartyPoker.
In early May, we reported that Sam Greenwood won the WPT # 11 Super High Roller tournament with a buy-in of $10 300 and a guarantee of $1 000 000. Back then, the Canadian poker pro earned $205 800 in prize money.
His compatriot Dan Smith managed to win twice as much as Sam in the super high roller tournament that was held as part of WPT Online at PartyPoker and ended the day before yesterday.
It’s about the WPT # 37 event worth $25 500 with a $2 000 000 guarantee, which Dan Smith took down and received $555 500 following the deal.
The runner-up of the event also turned out to be a poker player from Canada – Daniel Dvoress, whose payout for the second place amounted to $456 800.
Overall, the prize zone of the tournament included 13 places. The minimal payouts were equal to $56 870. They were given to the poker player from Belarus Ilya Anatsky (12th place) and the most successful poker player in Germany Fedor Holz (13th place). The famous poker professional Viktor Blom, unfortunately, became a bubble boy in this tournament.
It is worth noting that almost a month ago, Dan Smith won the Poker Masters # 21 event with a similar buy-in and a $1 000 000 guarantee, having added $511 870 to his earnings.
