From Online to Live: Daniel Dvoress Conquers WSOPE for His First Live Bracelet Win
The popular WSOP Europe series is gaining momentum within the walls of the King's Resort casino (Rozvadov, Czech Republic). Another golden trophy found its owner yesterday – 42 high rollers competed in the GGMillion$ tournament with a €25,000 buy-in.
A total of 89 entries were made to the event, and the final prize pool amounted to 2,079,930 euros. Canadian poker pro Daniel Dvoress became the champion of the event – the winner received €600,000 for first place.
Just a few days ago Dan managed to get the prestigious title in one of the final events of the Triton series in Monaco, and now he continued his winning streak in Rozvadov.
This is the first bracelet that Dvoress has won in a live series (the Canadian already has a golden trophy from the 2020 WSOP Online festival). Who knows how many awards the famous high roller would have if he was not forced to miss the WSOP series in Las Vegas due to the huge taxes on winnings for players from Canada.
"It's a bit difficult for us Canadians to play in the US from a tax perspective. Winning my first bracelet offline doesn't change my view on this issue," says Daniel.
Competing alongside Dvoress in the GGMillion$ event were Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (did not reach ITM zone), Nacho Barbero (bubble boy of the tournament), Timothy Adams (13th place and €41,610) and other top high rollers. Closer to the top-3, the Canadian captured the chip leadership and "finished off" American Michael Rocco in heads-up (the runner-up received €365,000).
