Steve O'Dwyer - PCA 2015 Super High Roller Winner

He's done it again. Just two months after winning the 2014 Asia Championship of Poker Super High Roller, top professional Steve O'Dwyer has added another prestigious title to his résumé. After a grueling three days of poker, O'Dwyer rose to the top of a stacked field to earn the title of 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller champion as well as $1,872,580 in first-place prize money.

The day began with seven of the eight members of the official final table returning to the felt (Scott Seiver was the final elimination of Day 2, earning $243,280 for his eighth-place finish). Sorel Mizzi held the chip lead coming into the day, while the eventual champion, O'Dwyer, sat in the middle of the pack with third-place chips.

The action at the final table came quickly with Andrew Robl being the first to hit the rail. On his final hand, Robl found himself all in on the turn with top pair against Bryn Kenney's flush draw and an over card. Another club peeled off on the river to complete Kenney's flush and eliminate Robl in seventh place for $313,700.

Following Robl to the exit was Day 1 chip leader Sam Greenwood. Greenwood became the victim of a confrontation with German Christoph Vogelsang whose pocket nines held up against Greenwood's pocket sixes during a preflop all in.

Despite this victory, Vogelsang could not gain any momentum at the final table and became the next player to fall. Vogelsang three-bet the {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} over an open from Roger Sippl with the {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. Action came back around to Sippl, he moved all in, and Vogelsang called for his own tournament life. When the board ran out, Sippl spiked a queen on the river to send Vogelsang home as the fifth-place finisher for $512,160.

Mizzi became the next victim, unable to ride his start-of-day chip lead into a victory. Mizzi three-bet shipped deuces over the top of a button open from Kenney, who held ace-jack. Kenney called and made a Broadway straight to eliminate Mizzi from play. Mizzi collected $695,400 for his finish. Shortly after scoring this elimination, however, it was Kenney who was the next to fall. He lost a crucial preflop race for his tournament life against O'Dwyer and was forced to settle for a bust just shy of heads-up play.

O'Dwyer began heads-up play with a significant chip lead over Sippl and he maintained that lead throughout the entirety of the match. With the blinds at 80,000/160,000/20,000, Sippl opened his button to 450,000 with the {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and was called by O'Dwyer's {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, and O'Dwyer check-called a continuation bet of 750,000. Both players checked the {2-Spades} on fourth street, allowing the {3-Spades} to complete the board on the river. O'Dwyer tapped the table for a third time and Sippl instantly moved all in for his last 2,995,000. This bet sent O'Dwyer into the tank for roughly four minutes while he pondered calling with merely ace high. In the end, O'Dwyer announced a call and Sippl was eliminated as the runner-up. He collected $1,344,420 for his impressive finish.

Interestingly enough, Sippl was the first elimination from this tournament. He fired a second bullet on Day 1 and was able to ride that into a second-place finish. O'Dwyer also reentered on Day 1 and that was enough to propel him to his second career Super High Roller victory.
