There was a thrilling end to the SHRS Europe earlier this week, as Daniel Dvoress won a captivating event between the two Canadian players at the top of the leaderboard. The success was recorded in the $50,00 No Limit Hold’s Em at the Super High Roller Series Europe.
This year’s competition is taking place at the Merit Crystal Cove Resort and Casino in Cyprus. It was yet another competitive event at the competition, with the sixth event attracting a field of 43 players in total. That created a sizable prize pool of just over $2,150,000 for players to compete for. The biggest winners came on the final table of the competition.
Dvoress Overcomes Compatriot
It was a battle between two of Canada’s finest players to determine the outright winner of the competition. However, it was Dvoress that came out on top, as the renowned star picked up returns of $713,000. It was a welcome success for the Canadian too, as it was the first victory that he had recorded from five cashes across the SHRS Europe and Triton Poker series. The 33-year-old has now won over $17.5 million in live earnings throughout his career, and sits 43rd on the all-time money list.
He also ranks as the fifth overall top player in terms of the Canada Money List. His best live cash out remains the $4,080,000 that he won previously. This victory was his biggest since August 2020, when he won nearly $1.5 million when topping the leaderboard in the Millionaire Maker event on the World Series of Poker. His victory was also his first success this calendar year, but he has finished in the top ten in each of the events that have been played in Cyprus throughout April.
Canadians Dominate Final Standings
It was a tense finish to the event, with Sam Greenwood eventually finishing the competition in second place overall. The Canadian walked away with returns of $473,000 overall, but would have likely been disappointed that he wasn’t able to record a victory in the competition. Greenwood sits above Dvoress on the overall money list, having picked up returns of over $23 million throughout his career. However, it has been a while now since his last victory, which came in the Super High Roller Bowl in May 2020, as he won back-to-back events on the 29th and 30th of the month. The most recent success was in the No Limit Hold’em High Roller.
Behind Greenwood on the leaderboard was Jason Koon, who cashed out for $322,500. Timothy Adams was the third Canadian player on the leaderboard, as he finished fourth for $236,500. Viacheslav Buldygin was next on the leaderboard, as he finished just a place about his Russian compatriot Artur Martirosyan. The final player on the leaderboard was Tom Vogelsang, as the Dutchman was eliminated in seventh place of the poker event, but still won returns of $86,000.
