Steve O’Dwyer wins European Poker Tour Main Event

Last night saw Steve O’Dwyer win the 9th season of the European Poker Tour Main Event, fending off over 531 players and beating many big names in poker such as Daniel Negreanu and Jake Cody to the top spot.

As you may have recently read, I have been keeping up a lot lately with online poker in the USA and following some of the major events such as the recent launch of Ultimate Poker in Nevada. Another one of my favourite poker habits, is following the European Poker Tour (EPT).

Last night saw O’Dwyer fend off some of the biggest and best poker players in the world to take the title, and eventually scooped the €1,224,000 prize!

Trying to keep as up to date as possible with the game on Twitter, it seems that O’Dwyer has lived up to his name and won one of the toughest games going.

Also in the final 8 were Jake Cody, one of my new poker idols that has managed to win some of the more impressive games lately with his aggressive playing style, and then of course, we have Daniel Negreanu, who, alongside Blom is definitely up there in my top 5 favourite poker players of all time. Eventually though, Negreanu, or @RealKidPoker as he is known on Twitter managed to walk away with €321,000 in prize money, still not a bad amount!
