How Dvoress Won Event #6
Dvoress came into Wednesday’s final table fifth in chips with seven players remaining, having locked up $86,000. Dvoress began working his way up the leaderboard and then busted Tom Vogelsang in seventh place when his ace-king bested Vogelsang’s pocket sixes.
After Vogelsang’s exit, Artur Martirosyan hit the rail in sixth place. Martirosyan was also eliminated by Dvoress, and once again it was Dvoress winning a flip. Martirosyan had pocket eights against Dvoress’ ace-queen of clubs, and Dvoress made a flush to win the hand.
Viacheslav Buldygin was next to bust, getting his money in good with pocket queens against Jason Koon’s pocket tens. Koon flopped a ten and Buldygin turned a flush draw, but Buldygin couldn’t find help on the river to get the double up.
Timothy Adams, who began the day as the chip leader, then busted in fourth place when he ran king-queen of diamonds into Dvoress’ pocket aces on a four-bet shove.
Falling in third place was Koon, and he went out to Sam Greenwood while Dvoress sat on the sidelines and watched it go down. Koon check-raised all in on a seven-three-two flop with queen-three and got called by Greenwood with king-seven. Greenwood’s hand held up and it was off to heads-up play.
Heads-up play began with Dvoress in the lead, but this wasn’t a quick match, lasting almost three hours. Eventually, Dvoress won a huge pot to double up when his flopped trips got paid off by Greenwood’s two pair, and Greenwood was left with just 300,000 in chips, which was two big blinds.
Dvoress finished off Greenwood on the next hand, making two pair with seven-four against Greenwood’s four-three to win it all.
