Canadian got $4 000 000 for winning the Super High Roller Bowl
The name of the Super High Roller Bowl winner has finally become known. The victory went to Canadian poker player Daniel Dvoress – it's the largest prize money in his career. For the first place, Daniel received as many as $4 000 000!
The final table was full of famous poker players’ names, which means that Daniel put a lot of effort to take down the event. Justin Bonomo was the first to leave the game. It's worth noting, that he was the current champion of this tournament. The 8th place brought Justin $510 000.
Then, Jason Koon, Steve O'Dwyer and Seth Davies completed their performance in the tournament. Erik Seidel lasted a little longer and took the fourth place, for which he received $1 275 000 in prize money.
Multimillionaire Kathy Lehne became the only girl in history to play at the final table of the Super High Roller Bowl. Kathy, whose fortune is equal to $380 000 000, stopped a step before heads-up – she eliminated from the event in the third place.
Heads-up for the victory and $4 million
In heads-up, Canadian player Daniel Dvoress and Malaysian Wai Leong Chan fought for the victory. The last hand was very epic: Daniel managed to collect a straight, but the combination was fully completed only on the river.
