  1. [caption width="640"] Steve O'Dwyer has .7M earnings so far in 2016[/caption] Steve O’Dwyer did in January what most poker players dream of doing in their lifetime. He finished fourth in the Triton Super High Roller in the Philippines for $953,700. He then won the $50,000 High Roller at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for $945,495. Then he made his way to the Aussie Millions where he finished fourth in the $25,000 High Roller. Three six figure cashes inside of three weeks. But he wasn’t done. On Monday - the first day of February - he capped that off by winning the Aussie Millions LK Boutique $250,000 Challenge for A$951,960 ($673,371 US). The event drew a total of 16 entries including two from Fedor Holz and a Day 2 entry from Mike McDonald to build a total prize pool of A$3,920,000. After Byron Kaverman busted in fifth place, the remaining four players agreed to an ICM chop, leaving $100,000 cash and the title to play for. The original payout structure was only paying the top three spots. Just over 40 minutes after agreeing to the chop, a crippled Fabian Quoss was sent out in fourth place. Peter raised to 50,000 from the button, O’Dwyer re-raised to 150,000, and Quoss put his last 60,000 in the middle. Peters folded. O’Dwyer held [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"] which put him well ahead of Quoss’ [poker card="6c"][poker card="3c"]. O’Dwyer paired his queen on the turn and Quoss was out in fourth. Five minutes later Drinan followed Quoss. Drinan moved all in from the button and Peters moved all in over the top, forcing O’Dwyer to fold. Drinan showed [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"] and was well behind Peters’ [ah[poker card="4h"]. The board ran out [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"][poker card="9c"] and Drinan was out in third leaving O’Dwyer and Peters to play for the title. Heads-up play took just over an hour. On the final hand of the night O’Dwyer raised and Peters called to see a flop of [poker card="qh"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3s"]. Peters checked to O’Dwyer who bet 115,000. Peters called and the two saw the [poker card="th"] hit the turn. Peters checked again and O’Dwer bet 230,000. Peters called again. The river was the [poker card="7d"] and Peters checked again. O’Dwyer announced he was all in for 1,700,000. Peters snap-called and tabled [poker card="qd"][poker card="7c"] for two pair but O’Dwyer showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="ts"] for a better two pair, eliminating Peters and earning his second high roller victory of the last three weeks. Final Table Payouts Steve O’Dwyer - 951,960 David Peters - 889,236 Connor Drinan - 1,021,909 Fabian Quoss - 956,896
  2. 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. Here were the EPT Prague Super High Roller final table finishers: 1. Steve MrTimCaumO'Dwyer - €746,543 2. Sam Pudge714Greenwood - 643,607 3. Igor Kurganov - €376,400 4. Dzmitry Urbanovich - €285,000 5. Thomas Muehloecker - €220,500 6. Daniel Dvoress - €172,100 7. Luuk Gieles - €137,140 8. John Juanda - €107,550 Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook. Image courtesy Neil Stoddart
  3. [caption width="640"] The EPT wraps up its 13th season this week (Image c/o PokerStars)[/caption] It is hard to believe thirteen seasons of the European Poker Tour have passed. It is harder to believe the tour is no longer going to exist. Thankfully for the European poker scene, the newly created PokerStars Festival series will continue to deliver poker to the masses, just under a different moniker. With the EPT wrapping up its final season in Prague this week, we decided to look back at the highlights of more than a decade of tournaments in this edition of Number Crunch: 1 – Number of two-time EPT champions. It took until the tail end of Season 10 to crown the first two-time champion. Victoria Coren won EPT London in Season 3 and in seven seasons later took down EPT San Remo to become the first and, to date, only repeat winner. By contrast, the World Poker Tour had two repeat winners the first season it was on tour. 7 – Number of final tables for Luca Pagano, the all-time leader in that category of EPT stats. Pagano has not made a final table on the tour since 2012, he was one of the original big names on the EPT, final tabling the very first EPT event in Barcelona in 2005. In 2009, Pagano final tabled three EPT Main Events. He has also finished in-the-money of 21 EPT Main Events. 23 – Number of different cities which have hosted an EPT over the years. Only Barcelona has been a stop on all 13 of the seasons, while others like Loutraki were one-and-done stops. Germany is the most popular country for the tour with Baden, Dortmund, and Berlin all playing host to events. 23 - Number of Super High Roller events in EPT history. First introduced at Season 7’s PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, the tour slowly added them to the largest stops on the tour with $50,000 and $100,000 buy-in price points (the exact amounts vary slightly based on the local currency). The list of champions reads like a who’s who of the poker circuit, but Steve O’Dwyer leads the pack with three separate Super High Roller titles. 27 – Number of countries which can lay claim to an EPT Champion. They come from every continent, save Antarctica and Australia. Champs have come from surprising places like Iran and Venezuela. The most successful countries are Great Britain and the United States. Both countries have 17 EPT titles to their credit, but you might consider giving a slight edge to the States, as John Juanda is credited as Indonesian, but has lived in the States since he was 19. 76 – Number of months Ibrahim Al Mousa was sentenced to prison for his role as the mastermind behind the 2010 EPT Berlin robbery. Al Mousa and four other men stormed the tournament area of the EPT Berlin Main Event brandishing guns and machetes. Scary, yes, but thankfully no one was hurt in the altercation. Eventually the tournament staff managed to reconstruct the tournament and play down to a winner. Kevin 'ImALuckSac' MacPhee won the tournament, but admitted in interviews he would have rather they did not play it out after the crime. 216 – Number of times EPT Live host Joe Stapleton estimates he and fellow host James Hartigan have sung their popular line “Everyone loves a chop pot!” The duo have worked together for the livestream and televised episodes of the tour for six years and have a number of running gags that have won over fans from all over the world. 1,785 – Number of entries in the largest-field EPT Main Event in history. That tournament, Season 13’s EPT Barcelona Main Event, featured a €5,300 buy-in and generated a prize pool in excess of €8.6 million. A hefty €1.1 million went to eventual champ Sebastian Malec of Poland, who bested the record field to take down the last-ever EPT Barcelona Main Event. 9,314,495– Dollars won by the EPT’s number-one earner Steve O'Dwyer. The American pro is $2.5 million ahead of his next-closest competitor, Ole Schemion. It is hard to single out just one accomplishment on O’Dwyer’s extensive EPT resume, but his biggest win is probably from Season 9, where he took down the Grand Final Main Event in Monaco for over $1.6 million. He actually earned more money for defeating a smaller field in the 2015 PCA Super High Roller for over $1.8 million in 2015 though. He has won two Super High Roller events, also taking down the one in Prague in Season 12. He has also final tabled the EPT London Main Event twice. Like we said, it is tough to pick just one accomplishment for this guy. 15,132,000 – Largest single prize pool in EPT history. Thanks to a turnout of 1,560 runners in Season 7’s PCA Main Event, the tour generated the eight-figure prize pool. While other events have generated bigger fields, the $10,000 buy-in resulted in a record-breaking sum. A cool $2.3 million went to winner Galen Hall, but the top four spots all netted seven-figure paydays.
  4. Poker action on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean came into focus throughout October. Another edition of WSOP Europe got underway - but didn't finish - in Rozvadov, Czech while some of the best online players in New Jersey were busy chasing down NJCOOP titles. Steve O'Dwyer Picks Up $1M With Two Tournament Wins It could be argued that nobody had a better October than Steve O'Dwyer. He traveled to Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, UK and beat 51 and 105 players in back-to-back tournaments to win $407,734 and $592,448 respectively. The two wins came one month after O'Dwyer picked up PokerStars WCOOP and partypoker Powerfest wins.

Once a regular in World Poker Tour events, Voulgaris is now more known for his deep understanding of NBA analytics. While Voulgaris was one of the most successful NBA bettors of all time thanks to his application of those analytics, Voulgaris had been able to resist overtures from NBA teams looking to bring him on board. That all changed in October when Mark Cuban came calling.

Some of the best players in the Garden State shined brightest during the 10-day series. Anthony Maio, fresh off of a sixth place finish in the WPT Borgata Poker Open, won the Moneymaker Tour Online event to win a $30,000 Platinum Pass. The man that tour was named for also managed to put on a show of his own during NJCOOP, picking up two titles.

WSOP Europe 2018 had 10 bracelet events on the schedule and nine of them concluded in October while the Main Event carried on into November. The biggest win of the nine came from poker bad boy Martin Kabrhel. The Czech picked up €2,624,340 after beating David Peters heads-up in the €100,000 Super High Roller event.
