He had to face a field made up of many High Rollers regulars such as Daniel Dvoress, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Adrian Mateos, Anton Suarez, Juha Helppi, Juan Pardo, Pedro Marques, Jean-Noel Thoreland mike watson. However, none of them hit a bounty or cash, except for Watson, who earned a small min-cash after re-entering on day two.
O’Dwyer looked unstoppable for a while as he took down Marques, Thorel, Hwany Lee and Sam Greenwood and chose the two envelopes for €50,000, but ended up falling in two strokes against Jamil Wakil to be number seven.
He was followed by Conor Beresford and Hammond and Seiji ended up taking the lead with the remaining four players. After the eliminations of Maher Nouira and off Jamil Wakil, the last duel was only short-lived.
