About one week after finishing seventh in the EPT Copenhagen Main Event, the American Poker Pro Steve O'Dwyer won the WPT National tournament in Vejle, Denmark.
O'Dwyer received a first prize of 900,000 DKK (about USD 160k) for his amazing achievement - especially since he had to beat 5 "locals" on the final table. O'Dwyer is now closing in on the $2.5 million mark in his career live tournament earnings.
