The British poker pro Daniel O'Callaghan has been having some good runs in live tournaments for PKR, but has not been able to win a tournament yet - Until now. On Sunday he avenged his second place in PKR Live London 2014 by winning the same tournament a year later.
The 27-year old player took on a field of 280 players at the Aspers Stratford and took home the first prize of £19,000 and also became the first player in the history to reach back-to-back final tables. The tournament had a £50,000 guarantee but that was shattered due to the biggest turnout in history as well as 38 re-entries, creating a prize pool of £85,000 for a mere £300 buy-in.
O'Callaghan, who is a regular player at PKR for the past seven years, came to the final table as a chipleader and never looked back at any point. He even eliminated most of his opponents and started the heads-up duel with a massive 10:1 chiplead over his final opponent, who never stood a chance.
The runner up - Wolfgang Wurzer - wasn't all that disappointed however, as he was an online qualifier and the last of those to be busted out, which PKR rewarded with a 20% additional payout bonus through their King of Qualifiers promotion.
