Another day, another high roller victory for Steve O'Dwyer. The American pro took down the opening event at the 2019 Triton Poker High Roller Series in Montenegro. Event #1 HKD $250,000 NL Turbo 8-Handed. O'Dwyer and Ike Haxton agreed to a heads-up chop and played out for a little extra cash and the trophy. Haxton ended up busting in second place and O'Dwyer won another high roller title. The American pro won HKD $3,708,784 or approximately $472,420 USD for first place.


Mango time. Doesn't matter if it's Montenegro or some other exotic locale, if Steve O'Dwyer is at the final table, he always has a chance. The American pro came into the final table of Triton SHR Event #1 in Montenegro with one of the short stacks, but that did not deter him from hanging on to avoid bubbling the money and eventually running well enough to go the distance at the final table.

The final table for Event #1 included Steve O'Dwyer, Isaac Haxton, Linus Loeliger, Beh Kok Weng, Sam Greenwood, Wei Lim Chin, and German pro Dietrich Fast. Wei Lim Chin and O'Dwyer were the short stacks heading into the final table. Chin ran into Weng's quads and he became the first player to exit.

German Dietrich Fast, who won the WPT LA Poker Classic in 2016, played the role of the bubble boy.

Only the top five places paid out. Sam Greenwood came into the final table and the final day as the big stack. The poker gods determined it was not meant to be for Greenwood. The Canadian min-cashed for a cool $1 million in Hong King Dollars when he busted in fifth place.

Beh Kok Weng was eliminated in fourth place. Weng earned HKD $1,240,000 or approximately $158K USD.

Linus Loeliger hit the bricks in third place. The Swiss pro took home HKD $1,720,000, or approximately $218K. He doesn't have too many live cashes, but he's a beast in the online world.

With two remaining, Steve O'Dwyer and Ike Haxton chopped up the remaining money. O'Dwyer held nearly a 2-1 edge with two to go. He locked up HKD $3.4M to HKD $2.9M for Ike.

The young Americans finished 1-2 in the opening event in Montenegro. They played for HKD $250K plus the trophy and bragging rights. O'Dwyer came out ahead

Ike Haxton took home approximately $369,600 in USD. His total haul was worth over HKD $2.9M for the heads-up deal. Not too shabby for a runner-up score, eh?

O'Dwyer binked another High Roller event. His most recent haul was worth $472K or so. That pushed him over $27 million in total tournament winnings. He's closing in on the Top 10, but he's currently #11 overall.

Heck of a run for O'Dwyer the last decade in the poker world. He's had to do all this damage on the road as an American online exile.
