Steve O'Dwyer is a familiar face on the European Poker Tour, thanks to
making four EPT Main Event final tables, including this one, which is
his second in two months following EPT London. He finished fifth there
for £146,000 bringing his live tournament winnings to more than $3.2

O’Dwyer’s first big score was back in 2009 when he came sixth in the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for more than $213,796, but it was 2011 when the communications graduate had his breakthrough year. O’Dwyer won nearly $1.5 million that year and snagged a further $880,000 in 2012, tearing through EPT Season 8 with a fifth place in the EPT Barcelona €10,000 High Roller, a runner-up finish at EPT London for £465,000, and seventh at EPT Copenhagen for DKr 290,000. O’Dwyer originally hails from the States but now holds an Irish passport and now lives in Dublin where he play poker online.
