Steve O'Dwyer became the first-ever player on the European Poker Tour to win a second Super High Roller title last night! Amazingly enough this was only the fifteenth time the EPT held an event with a Super High Roller attached. (Aside from two EPT Super High Roller titles, he also has a Super High Roller title victory from the 2014 APPT in Macau).
The EPT Prague Super High Roller final table lasted for 156 hands of play, and O'Dwyer was crowned the winner after defeating Sam Greenwood heads-up. Besides the winner's trophy, O'Dwyer received €746,543 in prize money and moved into third place (1st: Byron Kaverman, 2nd: Anthony Zinno) on the 2015 Global Poker Index (GPI) leaderboard.
