62 players generated a total of 70 entries for the 50K Single Day Super High Roller and while there were many great names in the assembled field, the final table had a few faces that seem to have a habit of going deep in these events. Steve O’Dwyer, Fedor Holz, Fabien Quoss, and Ole Schemion all made the final table, with the latter player fresh off the back of a huge Super High Roller win for over 1.6 million Euros the previous day.
Steve O’Dwyer has been enjoying a great deal of success at High Rollers in recent years, and while he didn’t manage to take this one down, he did manage to cash in 9th place. Fedor Holz put in another creditable performance to take 5th place, and after relative unknowns Murad Akhundov and Aidyn Auyezkanov had been sent to the rail in 4th and 3rd, it was left to the two German juggernauts to slog it out for the title.
Heads Up play
Having initially reached heads up and played until the early hours of the morning the previous day, the two players agreed to suspend the event so that they could both take part in the Main Event. Once both players had busted, they were back to finish off heads up play in the 50K, and struck a deal for most of the money before play began. Fabien Quoss and Ole Schemion are very experienced at High Rollers and the win could certainly have gone either way. With Ole Schemion having already won a High Roller this week, it seemed fitting that Quoss would take this one down – which he duly did, when his AQ held up against the K5 shove of Schemion.
