The heads-up match lasted all but four hands and Steve O'Dwyer won all of them. Ilari Sahamies asked before the start of the heads-up whether they could also play it at a later date, but O'Dwyer suggested to play a while still and see where that leads to.
In the first hand of heads-up, Sahamies raised to 400,000 and O'Dwyer called. They checked the flop and the turn before O'Dwyer bet the river for 450,000 to scoop the pot uncontested.
The second hand was a limp by O'Dwyer and the check of Sahamies. On the flop, Sahamies check-folded to a bet worth 200,000 by O'Dwyer.
The third hand was a walk for O'Dwyer and he then open-shoved the fourth hand. "I don't know, I am so bad," Sahamies said and then called it off for around 2,600,000 chips.
The flop immediately improved O'Dwyer and he held onto that lead with the turn and river. Sahamies is eliminated in second place for €220,970 while O'Dwyer ships yet another High Roller Event and shiny EPT trophy!
