LK Boutique $250k Challenge: O'Dwyer Wins

The 2016 Aussie Millions went out with a bang yesterday, when the last event of the series wrapped up on the last day of action. The $250k LK Boutique Challenge saw Steve O'Dwyer walk away with the goods, namely with AUD 951.9k and the title too, not to mention the bragging rights. Given the size of the buy-in, it was obvious from the get-go that only professional, well-bankrolled players would play in this poker tournament and indeed, all 15 entrants were "name" competitors. There was a re-entry too, rounding the numbers up to 16 entries and thus to a prize-pool of AUD 3.92 million.
While there weren't that many opponents to send packing, O'Dwyer had battle the cream of the crop to make it to the top which is exactly what he did. The one whom he defeated heads-up was David Peters, who picked up a AUD 889k reward for his efforts.

Connor Drinan, who has been at the forefront of many Aussie Millions final tables this year was once again there, finishing 3rd eventually, with a little over AUD 1 million to show for it. Fabian Quoss ended up in 4th, picking up a AUD 956k prize. Originally, the money-bubble was set to 4th place, with only 3 competitors slated to be paid, but the above said 4 struck a deal which effectively did away with the money-bubble and which also explains how 3rd place finisher Drinan took home the biggest chunk of change.
O'Dwyer has turned into something of a high roller specialist lately: less than a month ago, he won the $50k single-day high roller of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, taking down nearly $1 million there too.
