There has been no stopping Steve O'Dwyer as of late as he has been just hitting every card in the deck that he needs. Charles La Boissonniere raised to 6.2 million on the button with {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and O'Dwyer just called with {q-Clubs}{10-Spades} in the small blind. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and both players checked to the {7-Clubs} on the turn.

O'Dwyer led out for 10 million with the stronger two pair and La Boissonniere called to see the {2-Clubs} on the river. O'Dwyer stuck in another bet of 26 million and La Boissonniere paid him off. O'Dwyer dragged in another pot to climb over 300 million and leave La Boissonniere on the short stack.

Just a few hands later, Roger Teska moved all in from the small blind with {q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and La Boissonniere snap-called for 23.8 million with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. The flop came {q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} to give Teska the best hand after hitting a queen. The {8-Spades} on the turn gave La Boissonniere a straight draw but the {6-Hearts} bricked off as the Canadian finished in third place for $1,000,000.
