Steve O'Dwyer overcame a field of 46 to win the $50,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Super High Roller event.

His victory was worth a $769,500 payout, helping lift him to 10th on the all-time money list with live career earning that now sit at $21,121,735.

This was the third time O’Dwyer has struck gold in the Bahamas, having won the same event in 2016 as well as claiming the 2015 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller.

Final Table


Once filtered down to a final six handed table, Orpen Kisacikoglu was the first to make way, courtesy of Byron Kaverman, who started the final stage as chip leader, and swiftly moved on to dismiss Benjamin Pollak in fifth.

O’Dwyer himself took out Hall of Famer Erik Seidel next before Kaverman shot down Jean-Noel Thorel in third place to leave a heads up, face off in which Kaverman was to have the distinct chip advantage.

An advantage that wasn’t to last long as O’Dwyer won five straight hands, allowing him to leapfrog his opponent and take the lead, a position he was to finish in.
