PCA 2016: Steve O'Dwyer Wins $50k Single-Day High Roller

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 ADiamond3Diamond against QDiamondTHeart.

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!

Besting 58 people on a single day is not really history-book-worthy IMO but sleeping with all of them only on one day - now that would be an achievement.

Yeah this guy is definitely on a lucky streak. The best thing he can do is ride the wave while it last and amass as much moolah as he can during this good period of his poker career. Based on the stories of other poker pros that i have read about, hard times lie ahead for him, very hard times.

Ivan "Negriin" Luca was the best Latin American Global Poker Index (GPI) 2015. The Argentinian star not only traveled the world participating in the most important tournaments in the world, but did so with great success.
In 2015 he became the first Argentine to win a bracelet at the World Series of Poker by winning Event No. 30 $ 1,000 NLH on a field of 2,150 players.
And in the year 2016 has just begun, and it became the Latin player who cashed in the PCA 2016 with a total of $ 704,772, being the largest collection of $ 494,080 of Station 3 of Event # 38: $ 50,000 One-Day High Roller, also winning his first Pica in Event # 73 NL Hyper Turbo "Win the Button" Award: $ 22,670
Ivan "Negriin" Luca is called to become the best Argentine and Latin American player of all time with only 24 years and a huge future ahead.
It's a beast, the better.

Ivan "Negriin" Luca had excellent results in the Super High Roller of the EPT and above their findings in the online poker were surprisingly good, he is a player that will give much to talk about and probably in the future will become a star of world poker if it maintains this level
