The $30M Gtd POWERFEST got off to a flying start on Sunday 31st March with 25 events completed and almost $4.3 million awarded across those 25 events.

Canada’s “DeanMalenko” was the biggest winner on Day 1, courtesy of taking down the $5,200 buy-in Super High Roller for more than $162,000. Let’s take a look at the Low, Mid and High POWERFEST events that enjoyed the largest prize pools.

  • Events completed: 25
  • Prize money awarded: $4,288,602

Powerfest #03-SHR: $500K Gtd 8-Max

  • Buy-in: $5,200
  • Entrants: 141
  • Prize pool: $705,000

A massive $705,000 prize pool was created when 141 players bought into the $5,200 buy-in Powerfest #03-SHR: $500K Gtd 8-Max event and this princely sum was shared among the top 20 finishers.

By the time the eight-handed final table was set, the least anyone could take home was $21,150, the sum awarded to former Big Game champion “TIMEXCNT” of Canada.

The United Kingdom’s “Equilibrium_x” busted in seventh-place for $26,649 and was joined on the rail by Team partypoker’s Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao who collected $33,487 for his impressive run in this event.

Next to fall was “proudflop” in fifth-place for $42,300 before “omgitsgiraf” lost their chips in fourth-place, a result good for $59,925.

Austrian pro “mwhldwn” was the next casualty, their third-place finish netted them $84,600 and set up a heads-up battle between “wildace10” of Hungary and “DeanMalenko” of Canada for the lion’s share of the prize pool.

It was a battle DeanMalenko emerged unscathed from, banking the $162,079, resigning wildace10 to the $116,325 consolation prize.
