Yiannis Liperis Wins DTD High Roller At Dusk Till Dawn

There was some competitive action taking place at Dusk Till Dawn over the weekend, as a star-studded field of players were involved in the £1,100 Buy-in DTD High Roller. However, the event was all about Yiannis Liperis, who managed to come out on top, and in the process took his overall career earnings past the $2 million mark.

It was a strong display from the lifelong Aston Villa fan, and continued his strong run of performances this year, which included a fourth place finish at the PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo a few weeks ago to pick up just under €100,000.

Liperis Comes Out On Top

It was a famous weekend for the Cypriot-born star, as he continued his excellent run in big events throughout 2022. His victory this weekend only solidified his place at the top of the all-time money list for players from his home country, and means that he has now eclipsed the $2 million barrier in the world of poker. His best cash out remains the $261,750 that he won a couple of years ago. He came into this event having enjoyed a strong showing in Monte Carlo at the beginning of May, which included a fourth place finish in the High Roller event.

It was yet another strong effort by the Birmingham-based player, as he took home a considerable return of £34,000 from his performance at Dusk Till Dawn. The result always seemed to appear to be the most likely outcome, as he took firm control of the High Roller event, before forcing his opposing players into submission in the final stages. The final player that was left standing was Matthew Bonham, but he eventually needed to settle for a second place finish. Still, that saw him pick up returns of £22,000, which certainly illustrated a final weekend in Nottingham for the player.

Remaining Final Table Results

It was a competitive finish to the event over the weekend, but only the top nine players managed to compete on the final table. The players competing on the final table did an excellent job at reaching that stage, as a field of 94 entrants had lined up from the start, which helped create an overall prize pool of £100,000 for the event. Parminder Kandola just missed out on a place in the top two positions, as they finished the High Roller event in third place overall. Still, returns of £13,000 were collected for their strong showing.

Majid Nadeem finished back in fourth, while Ben Dobson once again made the final table of an event at the Dusk Till Dawn, as he finished in fifth place for returns of £6,500. Nikolay Ponomarev finished a place further back, while John Bassett and Gary Miller finished in respective positions of seventh and eighth on the leaderboard. Tariq Imam may be more well known for his Pot-Limit Omaha performances, but he finished ninth on the standings for £3,000.
