Steve O'Dwyer has been on fire in the past two years or so. Little did it surprise anyone when he claimed yet another big title this weekend on Paradise Island. This time the 33-year-old American-Irishman added another $945,495 to his already massive bankroll by besting a field of 58 players (+ 22 re-entries) in the $50,000 buy-in Single Day High Roller!
O'Dwyer defeated Connor Drinan heads-up. O'Dwyer had slight chip lead and decided to make a deal with Drinan - a deal that left $30,684 and the trophy to play for. The battle only lasted for a few hands after the deal had been made. O'Dwyer eliminated Drinan in the final hand with A3 against QT.
Steve O'Dwyer now has close to $14 million in live tournament earnings! It will be interesting to see how long it takes before he surpasses the $20 million mark!
