Ireland's Steve O'Dwyer Triumphs At PCA $100k Super High Roller

Ireland's Steve O'Dwyer Triumphs At PCA $100k Super High RollerThe PokerStars Carribean Adventure $100k super high roller event was held at the Atlantis Resort & Casino on Paradise Island, in the Bahamas, and attracted a record 66 players to create a prize pool of $6,402,000. Three days later, and Ireland’s Steve O’Dwyer triumphed over the small, but tough field to capture the PCA title, and collect a huge first-place prize worth $1,872,580. The victory boosts O’Dwyer’s live tournament earnings to $9,141,205, and commenting on securing a seventh tournament title, the 32 year-old said:
“To start the year this way is fantastic – I’m very happy with the result. I guess it would be better if I was in for one bullet instead of two, but I’ll take it.. I don’t really care about the money ever, I just want to play against the best players and prove to myself that I can do this at the highest level.”
After the final table of eight got underway, Bryn Kenney eliminated Andrew Robl in 7th ($313,700), before being dealt A-J and doing likewise to Sorel Mizzi (2-2) in 4th for $659,400. However, Bryn Kenney (K-Q) then got involved in a preflop all-in against Steve O’Dwyer (10-10), and after the board ran out 4-2-7-A-A Bryn Kenney exited in 3rd for $873,880, leaving Steve O’Dwyer and Roger Sippl to battle it out for  the title.
As the final battle commenced, O’Dwyer held a more than 2-1 chip advantage over Sippl, and the Irishman was then able to dominate  his remaining opponent until the deciding hand was played with a weakened Sippl (J-10) moving all-in for his remaining chips on a Q-8-8-2-3 board. Following much deliberation,O’Dwyer (A-10) decided to make the call, and just like that Roger Sippl was consigned to a runner-up finish worth $1,344,420, while Steve O’Dwyer was crowned the 2015 PCA $100k Super High Roller champion.
Final Table Results:
1 Steve O’Dwyer – $1,872,580
2 Roger Sippl – $1,344,420
3 Bryn Kenney – $873,880
4 Sorel Mizzi – $659,400
5 Christoph Vogelsang – $512,160
6 Sam Greenwood – $396,920
7 Andrew Robl – $313,700
