Dvoress Dominates Millionaire Maker on WSOP 2020 Online

The 2020 World Series of Poker is well underway. While the United States portion of the series – 31 events – finished on July 31, the 54-tournament international part of the series is going strong.

Players in some countries – like the US and Australia – could not access the international series, which is playing out on the GGPoker Network, so they traveled to countries that granted access. Americans went to Canada or Mexico, and some Australians went to New Zealand. Anyone with the ways and means was not going to miss the WSOP 2020 Online.

Australians and others in the Asia-Pacific region have been playing on the popular GGPoker Network skin Natural8. Last week, we took a look at the first 16 events and results. Winners thus far from the Asia-Pacific region were:

  • Event 34: Shoma “pp_syon” Ishikawa of Japan
