Canada’s Daniel Dvoress Makes Cover Feature
Poker media publication CardPlayer has just released its latest digital bi-weekly magazine, and trending on the cover is none other than Canadian Poker champion Daniel Dvoress – the man who recently won the WSOP’s Millionaire Maker event, which win earned him his very first gold bracelet, as well as a fantastic $1,489,289 in prize money.
First introduced in 2013, the WSOP’s Million Maker event was never supposed to be anything more complicated than a tournament offering to Poker enthusiasts an affordable buy-in ($1,500) in return for the opportunity to win prize money of at least $1 million. Immediately an instant success after drawing a record field of entries, the event would from that point onwards every year be offered as part of the annual WSOP schedule.
And needless to say, this year’s recently-concluded 2020 WSOP Online tournament proved no different – with the Millionaire Maker event attracting an unbelievable total of 6,299 entries across a sweltering 15 staring flights.
Dvoress Stands Out From Crowd
It should at this point be mentioned that the event has largely lived up to its name – and that this has remained true ever since its inception. Of the seven players that won the event before Dvoress, six had at the time of their big win not yet surpassed the million-dollar career earnings mark.
All of which makes Daniel Dvoress to stand out among this particular group. Dvoress had after all accumulated a steaming $15.7 million in live career earnings prior to his winning this year’s WSOP Millionaire Maker event.
Despite the Canadian Poker-pro only having recorded his maiden live tournament win as recently as 2013, Dvoress has to date managed to amass a small fortune working the felt. Even so, the one honour that would keep eluding Dvoress would be the one award coveted most of all by the majority of Poker players the world over: a WSOP gold bracelet.
An Unexpected Victory
But, said Dvoress of his bracelet win during a post-victory interview, winning a WSOP gold bracelet wasn’t something really ever on his personal radar, and purely because he never experienced the need to participate in a WSOP event – not until this year’s online-driving circumstances, at least.
But now that he’s successfully nabbed his very first WSOP gold bracelet, Dvoress says it’s an incredible feeling to have reached such a milestone. And the fact that he managed to win his first bracelet playing a field more than 6k entries large, has only made the victory all the sweeter and more exceptional.
