Tuesday 9th April was the 10th day of the $30 million guaranteed POWERFEST and what a day it was. Another $1,803,554 was paid out, taking the grand total awarded so far to more than $20 million.
The biggest tournament of the day was the $5,200 buy-in $500,000 guaranteed PKO 8-Max event and it awarded so gigantic bounties. Let’s take a closer look.

A field of 131-players took part in the Powerfest #46-SHR: $500K Gtd PKO 8-Max, with several members of Team partypoker among them. Joni Jouhkimainen and Renato Nomura missed out on a cash, but picked picked up some bounty payments along the way.
Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello busted in 19th place and collected more than $10,000 in total. Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov went a few places deeper before busting in 15th place for a shade under $9,000 with Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard falling in 12th place for almost $11,000.
The deepest any of our players went was eighth-place and it was the Brazilian sensation Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao who was that player. Simao collected $10,506 from the main prize pool and $21,937 worth of bounties for a profitable day at the tables.
While Simao’s bounty haul was impressive in its own right, it was nowhere near the monster-sized bounty payment “MelonsAreYum” collected after taking down this event.
First-place was worth $57,820 and the Dutch player also secured $105,503 from the bounty prize pool after sending Sweden’s “MOTHERSMATTERS” to the rail in second-place. Incredible stuff.
