The final day of the HK$400,000 Super High Roller begins at 12:30pm local time (GMT+7) Monday 3 April. With the 14 remaining players unable to burst the bubble when play concluded at 1am in the early hours of Monday morning the action remains hand-for-hand.
With only 13 places getting paid, with a min-cash worth HK$676,000 (~US$86,980), one of the remaining players will be leaving empty handed.
The man currently in pole position is none other than high-stakes crusher Steve O’Dwyer, a place he should be familiar with by now. Just over 2 weeks ago O’Dwyer emerged victorious over the 84-strong US$10,000 PokerStars Championship High Roller for $240,451.
With first place taking home a massive HK$8,974,000 (~$1.15 million) O’Dwyer will be looking to continue his run of form and aided by the power of his magic mango he could well go all the way.
O’Dwyer will not be getting an easy ride however, with German wunderkind Fedor Holz breathing down his neck with a stack of 2,225,000, closely followed by Australia’s Kale Burns, who is sitting on 2,165,000 with the rest of the tournament stacking up as follows:
|Stanley Choi||Hong Kong||2,010,000|
|Behzad Ahadpour||St. Kitts and Nevis||675,000|
There will be a table redraw when play reaches 9-handed, although the official final table will be an 8-handed affair.

Another tournament nearing its conclusion is the HK$8,800 PokerStars National Championship. The initial 708-strong field has now been whittled down to a more manageable 8, with Dutchman Koen Breed holding a commanding chip lead with a stack of 5,730,000 and he will be hoping to go all the way and take down the HK$888,080 (~US$114,274) first prize.
