Aussie Millions: Steve O’Dwyer adds a new High Roller trophy to his collection

This was comfortably the largest of the High Roller events at this year's Aussie Millions, with a buy in that resulted in a field almost entirely filled with world class poker talent. Phil Ivey has made a habit of winning this event in recent years, but with his early exit, the way was paved for another big name to take the cash and glory here in Melbourne. With 15 unique entries, the field was certainly about quality over quantity, but still created a great prize pool of AU$4,000,000.

The plan was initially to pay 3 places, but as the action got down to 4 handed, Steve O'Dwyer, David Peters, Connor Drinan, and Fabian Quoss decided to chop the money. From there, they played on to see who would take the title and an extra AU$100,000 and given his recent form, it was no surprise that Steve O'Dwyer went on to claim victory.

The list of accomplishments in O'Dwyer's career is beginning to grow very long indeed. He has an EPT Main Event title, and numerous Super High Roller wins and big scores. He took 4th in the AU$25,000 Challenge a few days ago, won the PCA High Roller a few weeks ago, and took 4th in the Triton Super High Roller less than 4 weeks ago. He is also a regular on Asian tour events, and is becoming increasingly well known across the world.
