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.

Many congratulations to Steve O'Dwyer for winning this Super High Roller event and the first prize of 746,543. This guy has a phenomenal record in these events and it was no surprise to see him win this

A great win from O'Dwyer who does seem to do very well in these types of tournaments and I think has won 3 or 4 high rollers,he would definitely be a player I would be happy to stake when it comes to hi rollers.
Kurganov is also someone with a good record in the big buy in tournies.

It's not like there's a big competition when it comes to these kinda format. 46 entries is a managable path to get through.

It does not matter as long as they pay the winners, right?
Only one who care about it is in the marketing department of the other company. Big Smile

It´s not much of accomplishmet to beat 46 players in poker. Anyone can pretty much do that with enough luck.
