Benny Spindler is Number One at EPT London
Given what we've seen of Benny Spindler's playing style we knew this heads-up match would be a fast-paced affair and it did not disappoint.
Spindler entered the match with a roughly 2 to 1 chip advantage and that really didn't change much leading up to the final hand, a massive preflop all-in confrontation.
Spindler raised his button to 225k and O'Dwyer fired right back with a three-bet to 725,000. Spindler, never one to turn tail in the face of aggression, four-bet to 1,725,000.
O'Dwyer gave it some thought before moving all-in, getting a very quick call from the German.
Spindler: A♣ K♦
O'Dwyer: K♠ J♣
The flop was a disaster for the American, falling A♦ 8♦ 7♣. A jack on the turn gave O'Dwyer a glimmer of hope but the river brought the 6♦ and made Spindler's victory official.
Benny Spindler wins EPT London and receives £750,000 while Steve O'Dwyer takes £465,000 for runner-up.
