If you joined us last week when Steve O'Dwyer won yet another High Roller event, this time at partypoker LIVE UK MILLIONS, just skip this news because it's basically the same story. 

Yes, he has just won back-to-back High Rollers at Dusk Till Dawn. He won the £25,000 High Roller for £450,000 earlier last week and last night took down the £10,000 High Roller for £314,000. 

This is his fourth live High Roller title of 2018 and his fourth major title in a month, having also won WCOOP and PowerFest titles online. 

That should be enough to propel him into the top ten of the all-time money list ahead of David Peters, the rankings haven't been updated yet but that puts him roughly on just under $25 million in lifetime earnings.

The bigger story of the week was without doubt the partpoker £5,000 UK MILLIONS Main Event which looked like it was going to overlay but at the last minute attracted 1,015 entrants.

It culminated in a very tough final table that included online MTT legends Dara O'Kearney, Tom Hall and Sam Grafton, as well as the very in-form Alex Foxen. 

Ioannis Angelou-Konstas of Greece came into the final table with a monster chip lead and put it to good use, but eventually settled for a heads-up deal with Alex Foxen, where he took just under the advertised £1 million first prize. He took £940,000 to Foxen's £720,000. 

Foxen also benefitted from being the longest lasting partypoker qualifier for this event, which earned him an additional £100,000 as part of one of partypoker's many added value promotions for satellite regulars

Next up for partypoker LIVE is the season 2 finale in the Caribbean, which gets underway on November 10.
