Steve O’Dwyer finished EPT Barcelona 25,000 Euro High Roller at the top of the table, winning 405,760 Euro, ending his Barcelona trip with a ‘no longer angry’ note. The start was not what he wanted with cashing out at the same event earlier, followed by going short of money in 10,000 Euro High Roller.
As per latest poker news, Steve O’Dwyer finally topped the list of 52 entries with a good victory in his name and claiming the title in his favor.
The Ireland star is followed by the rest of the top six, including Juan Pardo from Spain, Bruno Volkmann from Brazil, and Sergio Aido from Spain, among 3 others.
Steve O’Dwyer goes back with a record in the game, something that a few low days can never take away from him. His previous winnings totaled 31,000,000 Euro, and he is currently ranked 14th all-time in terms of wealth. He still owns the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure title at $100,000 Super High Roller after winning the 2013 EPT Monte Carlo.
Someone else breaking this record would still keep Steve O’Dwyer at the top for his attitude of taking on a challenge heads on and beating the hurdles coming his way to grab the victory.
This attitude is now synonymous with his personality.
Steve O’Dwyer stated in one of the interviews that it was a pleasurable experience to play against the top guys nonstop. Steve O’Dwyer also expressed his happiness in getting the opportunity to do so.
It is true as of the moment that Steve O’Dwyer hopped back into action in another 25,000 Euro High Roller and created an entire field of 52 with a prize pool of 1,248,520.
Early outers were David Peters, Dan Smith, and Nick Petrangelo, and they missed a chance to get a chair at the final table of nine. With only seven sets to get a share from the pool, Mikita Badziakouski became another unfortunate victim to leave the space.
Juan Pardo made it through by winning 268,430 Euro and the second position after Steve O’Dwyer on the final table. Erik Seidel finished seventh after running his ace-jack into the ace-king of Pablo Brito Silva, who took the lead with the fifth position and won 106,120 Euro.
Steve O’Dwyer reached the top spot in steps that began with pushing Brito Silva to the fifth position after Steve O’Dwyer picked up the Kings.
The environment got to everyone’s nerves, which had to be maintained calm to get a higher share of the prize pool. Two players went on a break only to return and see that Steve O’Dwyer and Juan Pardo had got a hold of their positions on the table.
Starting the tour on a lower side went on to work well for Steve O’Dwyer.
