- Entrants: 127
- Prize pool: $1,270,000
A star-studded field of 127 players turned out for the Powerfest #21-SHR: $1M Gtd Championship Event 8-Max, ensuring the $1 million guarantee was smashed. The top 16 finishers received prize money, including Team partypoker’s Sam “SamTrickett” Trickett and Renato “renatonomura” Nomura who finished in 11th and ninth-place respectively for $31,750 each.
“TimeToPardy” busted first from the eighth-handed final table and banked $41,275. They were joined on the rail by “iTiLTuu” of Austria who collected $50,800 before “schlongoperator” from Canada fell in sixth-place for a $63,500 addition to their bankroll.
Fifth-place and $82,550 went to “PokerG1rl69” of Finland before Team partypoker’s Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao saw his tournament end in a fourth-place finish worth $111,125, the first six-figure prize of the event.
The UK’s “ADRIEN_BRODY” then crashed out in third-place for a $158,750 prize, leaving “Ilove2fish” and Hungarian star “probirs” to fight it out for the top prize. It was probirs who emerged victorious, resigning Ilove2fish to a massive $222,250 consolation prize and bagging the $311,150 top prize for themself.
Powerfest #23-SHR: $500K Gtd PLO 6-Max
- Buy-in: $5,200
- Entrants: 100
- Prize pool: $500,000
The $5,200 Powerfest #23-SHR: $500K Gtd PLO 6-Max saw 100 players take to the virtual felt and it was one of our own, Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello who claimed the unwanted title of bubble boy, busting in 13th place with 12-place paid.
A min-cashed was worth $13,699 but this increased to $21,250, the sum given to “U_goT_BanANa” of Austria. The Austrian was followed to the sidelines by a fellow Austrian “Skrillexer” who netted $31,250 and then Germany’s “Loewe80” fell by the wayside in fourth-place for a $43,750 prize.
Next to bust was the British PLO specialist “CHUFFTY” who banked a cool $60,000 before Sweden’s “haddoken”, who had led for the majority of the tournament, defeated Brazil’s “p7p7p7p7” heads-up for the title. The Brazilian scooped $97,500 with the Swede walking away with a massive $156,403.
Powerfest #22-HR: $250K Gtd PKO 8-Max
- Buy-in: $2,100
- Entrants: 178
- Prize pool: $364,900
Team partypoker’s excellent day at the tables continued when Isaac “Ike_Haxton” Haxton navigated his way to the final table of the $2,100 Powerfest #22-HR: $250K Gtd PKO 8-Max event.
Sadly for Haxton, he couldn’t quite get the job done and busted in third-place for a $22,019 prize boosted by $7,415 worth of bounties.
The eight-handed final table read like a who’s who of online poker with it seating the likes of “HellmuthTheGr8”, “JimyTransaction”, and “rudiqa1”. The heads-up duo were “JWPRODIGY” who looks to have moved from Thailand to Malta to continue his online poker career, and Brazilian sensation “n1ceFTW”.
It was n1ceFTW who was the victory in this event, getting their hands on $30,200 for finishing in first-place and a substantial $68,184 worth of bounty payments. JWPRODIGY had to console themself with a $30,164 second-place prize and $6,168 from the bounty prize pool.
