It took just a little bit more than 5 hours of play at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas until the biggest ever $100,000 Super High Roller had a winner, Steve O'Dwyer of USA!
O'Dwyer, who is based in Ireland these days, bested a field of 50 players and 66 entries to claim the massive $1.87 million first-place prize! Believe it or not but this was O'Dwyer's second super high roller victory in the past couple of months! In November last year, he outlasted a field of 52 entrants, and 50 rebuys, in the ACOP SUPER HIGH ROLLER IN MACAU for $1.81 million.
"I'm pretty confident about what I've been doing lately, but a lot of this is luck and I ran pretty hot to win another one," O'Dwyer told PokerStars Blog. "Players are a lot tougher in these ones so it's better to get lucky I guess."
