2016 Aussie Millions: Steve O'Dwyer Wins The $250,000 Challenge!

Tags: 2016 Aussie Millions, Steve ODwyer.

Does this guy ever stop winning? Well, it clearly doesn't seem that way given that Steve O'Dwyer added yet another High Roller title to his poker resume on Monday! This time he outlasted a field of 15 of the world's best poker players in the 2016 Aussie Millions $250,000 Challenge!

Once the massive buy-in tournament was down to 4 players (top 3 players were supposed to get a slice of the massive prize pool), the remaining players agreed to chop the remaining pot - chip leader Conor Drinan locked up $1,021,909, Fabian Quoss $956,896, Steve O'Dwyer $951,960, and David Peters $889,236.

With nothing but the title left to play for it didn't take more than 2 hours before Steve O'Dwyer was the last man standing. In the final hand, both O'Dwyer and Peters made two pairs on a Q 6 3 10 7 board. The chips went into the middle of the table and O'Dwyer's Q 10 won against Peters' Q 7.

According to HighStakesDB, O'Dwyer has now won almost $15 million playing live tournaments - and more than half of that amount comes from the last 10 months!

Congratulations on the 4 way chop, not. I don't even understand these guys. Having the guts to buyin for a whooping $250k against a very tough field and then wussing out and chopping it 4 ways in a 15 people tournament. On top of it all they don't even leave anything behind for the eventual winner. High stakes poker nowadays is just a bunch of pussies with wealthy backers dictating everything. I find it difficult to give them my respect.

I watched this...when 4 players left they made deal, even only 3 places paid... Steve won 3 way all in, and after that had a huge chip lead, also he knows to play those super high rollers, so he was huge favorite to win Blink I didnt expect nothing less... but I would like more if Fedor won it...

Aaand this is why I hate dealings on these tournaments. It's like getting a good effort/participation thropy on football games when u are a kid. Meaningless - just like who won this one after the deal.

Even though there were only 15 entrants, it is still very very tough to win this so a big congratulations to Steve for his finish there in Australia...
