Longtime PocketFiver Steve MrTimCaumO’Dwyer (pictured) hit it big on Thursday, winning the EPT Prague Super High Roller Event after a heads-up chop for $816,000. He’s the first person to win multiple EPT Super High Roller Events.
There were 56 entries into the tournament and the 33-year-old also won the Super High Roller in the beginning of 2015 in the Bahamas, which had a $100,000 buy-in. O’Dwyer passed $12 million in live tournament winnings for his career, according to the Hendon Mob, and before he won the Super High Roller in the Czech Republic, he was #4 in the Global Poker Index.
According to PokerStars, which runs the EPT, O’Dwyer has won almost $5 million in the last 12 months alone. In Prague, he dealt heads-up with fellow PocketFiver Sam Pudge714 Greenwood, who took home $703,000. As PokerStars relayed, “The pair cut a heads-up deal during the dinner break, leaving most of the money locked up and playing for just €22,000, the trophy, the title, and Global Poker Index points.”
Last month, O’Dwyer took fourth in the APPT Macau Super High Roller for $343,000. In October, he won an eight-max event in Malta for $360,000. In August, O’Dwyer final tabled the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller and put back $249,000. Therefore, he has logged six-figure scores in four of the last five months.
Incredibly, the EPT Prague Super High Roller was almost O’Dwyer’s fourth million-dollar-plus score of his career. Here are the three seven-figure cashes he’s had:
January 2015 – $1.8 million for winning the PCA Super High Roller
November 2014 – $1.8 million for winning the ACOP Super High Roller
May 2013 – $1.6 million for winning the EPT Grand Final Main Event
O’Dwyer has been a member of PocketFives since 2005, our very first year, and has $2.3 million in online winnings that we’ve tracked. His largest in the money finish online came after taking down the Full Tilt $1K Monday in 2009 for almost $100,000.
