For most of 2018, Steve O'Dwyer has been unbeatable in high roller tournaments, both online and live. Roger Teska flipped the script on that narrative late Monday night at the $25,500 buy-in Caribbean Poker Party MILLIONS World, coming back from a 4-1 heads up chip deficit to win $2,000,000 and his first live title in over nine years. Teska started the final table with the third shortest stack and had to battle against the likes of Rainer Kempe, Niall Farrell, Joao Vieira, Ben Tollerene and Andras Nemeth on his way to the title. Teska's last live win came in 2009 when he won a $500 buy-in Bellagio Cup V event. It didn't take long for the first casualty at the nine-handed final table. Paul Tedeschi raised to 2,500,000 from middle position with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] before Vieira moved all in for 17,500,000 from the hijack with [poker card="jh"][poker card="js"]. Tedeschi called and watched the [poker card="qh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] runout keep him in full control and eliminated Vieira in ninth place. Ten minutes later, Farrell became the next victim of the final table. O'Dwyer raised from the button to 2,600,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6h"] and Farrell moved all in for 10,500,000 with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2d"] from the small blind. Roger Teska re-raised all in from the big blind with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"]. O'Dwyer folded and Farrell could only watch after the [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"] flop kept Teska well ahead. The turn was the [poker card="td"] and the [poker card="qd"] completed the board to send Farrell to the rail with an eighth place finish. O'Dwyer found his first final table victim almost 30 minutes later. O'Dwyer raised to 2,500,000 from UTG+1 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"]. From the button, Kempe moved all in for 15,600,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] and O'Dwyer called. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"][poker card="5d"] flop gave O'Dwyer complete control as the [poker card="6d"] and [poker card="ks"] hit the turn and river respectively to eliminate Kempe in seventh. It took nearly two hours of play before there was another elimination. Teska and Tollerene tangled in a pre-flop all in hand that saw Teska win with runner-runner flush against Tollerene's pocket pair. Left with just fumes, the next hand was the end of the line for Tollerene. Tollerene moved all in for 10,000,000 from UTG with [poker card="kd"][poker card="2h"] and Nemeth called from the big blind with [poker card="js"][poker card="7c"]. The [qs[poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"] flop gave Nemeth second pair. The turn was the [poker card="6c"] and the river was the [poker card="ad"] to eliminate Tollerene in sixth. Nemeth had plans on putting his newfound big stack to work but ran into the buzzsaw that is O'Dwyer. From the button, O'Dwyer raised to 3,700,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and Teska called from the small blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qd"] before Nemeth moved all in for 71,500,000 with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"] from the big blind. O'Dwyer called and Teska folded. O'Dwyer got great news on the [poker card="ad"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3s"] flop. Neither the [poker card="qc"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river were any help for Nemeth and he was eliminated in fifth place. Tedeschi lost a monster pot to Teska before O'Dwyer finished him off for good. Teska and Charles La Boissonniere both folded and Tedeschi moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="2d"]. O'Dwyer called from the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="7h"] and then moved ahead with the [poker card="jc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="2c"] flop. The [poker card="ts"] turn and [poker card="3d"] river failed to save Tedeschi and he was out in fourth. As O'Dwyer continued to build his stack, he did so largely at the expense of La Boissonniere. The Canadian had less than 10 big blinds and found himself in the big blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. O'Dwyer folded the button, Teska moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"] and La Boissonniere called. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="td"][poker card="th"] flop gave Teska the lead. The [poker card="8s"] turn gave La Boissonniere outs to a straight, but the river was the [poker card="6h"] and he was out in third place. When heads-up play began, O'Dwyer had 79.1% of the chips in play. The tournament was all but over a few minutes later when Teska four-bet all in holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] and O'Dwyer called with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="qs"] on the flop moved Teska in front and neither the turn or river helped O'Dwyer and the stacks were nearly even. Teska's momentum continued and less than an hour later he was posing with the trophy. O'Dwyer button-raised to 9,000,000 holding [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] and Teska shoved with [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"] and O'Dwyer called all in. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2h"] moved Teska ahead and the [poker card="qd"] turn and the [poker card="3c"] river sealed O'Dwyer's second place finish.

It’s always nice to have your poker results get off a to great start in a new calendar year. That was certainly the case for a number of PocketFivers that logged on to 888poker in January to take down their share of tournaments and get 2019 off on the right foot. January’s big winner on 888poker was the UK’s James ‘jamex’ Walsh who leveraged 24 total cashes into $21,347 in total earnings. He started the year off with a runner-up finish in the $10,000 Monsoon for $1,600 on New Year’s Day. However, it was his second place finish in the January 13 edition of the $100,000 Mega Deep for $14,500 that proved to be his biggest score of the month. In total Walsh had four podium finishes out of his seven final tables. He currently sits less than $8,000 away from topping $1.3 million in lifetime scores. The worldwide #31-ranked player Jonatan ‘Pot4teUS’ Hellman took second on 888poker in January. The Swedish crusher cashed 18 times in the month, four of which were for four-figures. The highlight of Hellman’s month on the site was his victory in the January 21 edition of the $12,000 Mega Deep for $3,355. In total, Hellman, who plays under the screen name ‘Namlleh’, won $13,441 in January as he put in more volume on the site than he had since September 2018. READ: Life and the Grind Are Intertwined For Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman Germany’s ‘Resilience32’ also had a nice start to the year on 888poker, taking third on the winner’s list. He scored three four-figure scores in the month with his third-place finish in the January 27 edition of the $33 Sunday BIG Fish for $3,914 as his largest. He took home $10,970 in January which is a big part of his $188,000 lifetime total earnings. ‘Resilience32’ joined PocketFives as recently as September 2018 and currently sits as the #5-ranked player in Germany. 888poker Top 10 Earners of January 2019 Username Total Won Cashes Wins jamex $21,347.93 24 1 Pot4teUS $13,441.19 18 1 Resilience32 $10,970.09 16 0 77kol0bok77 $10,444.63 15 1 Ph4N $10,388.21 18 1 bustindanut $10,356.75 27 0 gifuhorna $10,281.33 10 1 RuiBouquet $10,202.17 39 2 EzeFerretty $9,925.34 10 2 This is the second month in a row that Russia’s ‘Neverhood007’ tops the list of players who finished in the money. The small stakes grinder, who plays as ‘Ufolddonk’, put in an incredible amount of volume on 888poker and cashed for an impressive 115 times in January. That’s up from his December total number of cashes of 105. In total, 'Neverhood007' earned $3,150, pushing his lifetime career total to just over $143,000. Longtime PocketFiver Stephen ‘sizzlinbetta’ Reynolds racked up 77 cashes in January for a total of $1,686 to sit in second place on the list. Reynolds grinds the small stakes nowadays but he has over $2.3 million in lifetime career earnings and while many of his recent scores are under $10, he does have a six-figure score on his resume. Of his 77 cashes, four were for outright victories including taking down the $1,000 Guaranteed FRENZY R&A for $205. Jeferson ‘JefersonLA’ Luiz Aissa cashed 75 times in the month for $1,650, pushing his lifetime total to over $50,000. Aissa, who is coming up on his one year anniversary on PocketFives in May, puts in most of his volume on 888poker. He booked three wins in three days from January 23-25 taking down the $1K Deepstack for $218, the $1K Turbo Deep for $196 and the 8-Max Mini Starfish for another $149. 888poker Top 10 Cashers of January 2019 Username Total Won Cashes Wins Neverhood007 $3,150.78 115 6 sizzlinbetta $1,686.61 77 4 JefersonLA $1,650.33 75 4 jlaku $3,425.59 67 0 keribazas $3,565.69 63 5 Fisherman101 $3,528.90 60 6 DoperHarley $1,301.92 57 3 fmocci $1,051.19 56 1 BLaaZeKuSH $3,939.63 50 6 h4lawa $1,515.87 47 3 There was a bit of a bottleneck at the top of the leaderboard for most wins in January.
