Steve O’Dwyer Wins partypoker MILLIONS UK £10k High Roller For £314,000

Going back-to-back is not unheard of, but doing it in the same week is highly unusual – but that’s what Steve O’Dwyer just did in the partypoker MILLIONS UK High Rollers, adding another £314,000 to his wallet by taking down the £10k version, having already scooped the £25k event for £450,000!

With 105 entries at the end of late reg, that meant there was over £1million on the line by the time the final day appeared, but only 11 of the final 13 would make it to the money, Anton Wigg and Mustapha Kanit missing out, while Juan Pardo Dominguez (£22,500), Adrian Mateos (£22,500) and Fabrizio Gonzalez (£27,500) would cash but miss the final table.

O’Dwyer, of course, was the man to beat – the Colorado man currently sitting 11th in the all-time tournament money-winners list a mere $½million behind David Peters, that gap narrowing significantly after last night’s effort.

That effort included knocking out the final four challengers en route to the title, big hands getting there when it mattered and once again pocket aces dealing with his heads-up opponent as they did in the £25k finale, this time the Italian Gianluca Speranza having to settle for 2nd – completing a remarkable feat by O’Dwyer.

Final Table Results

1 Steve O'Dwyer £314,000
2 Gianluca Speranza £193,000

5 Michael Zhang £75,000
6 Chris Brammer £60,000
