Several members of Team partypoker helped themselves to big score, although none were as substantial as the $159,000 that Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov banked in the first Championship Event of the series.

The first Championship Event of the $60 million POWERFEST attracted a field of 181 entrants who were all vying for the $221,300 first-place prize. Five of our Team partypoker members made it into the money. Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao finished in 22nd place for $13,300, Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard busted in 18th place for $13,300 with Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello exiting in 16th place for $17,200.
Everyone at the final table locked up at least $27,500 and the final table had two of our players at it. One by one the final tablists busted out, the prize money vastly increasing each time.
By the time Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier fell in fourth-place, the prize was a massive $83,000. Third-place went to “Algorhtym” who banked $116,000, leaving Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov and “WWWpartyCOM” to battle heads-up for the title.
It was WWWpartyCOM who emerged victorious, leaving our hero to collect $159,000 for his runner-up finish. WWWpartyCOM collected $221,300 for their victory to go with the huge $872,839 they won last May in the $25,500 Super High Roller POWERFEST event.

POWERFEST #004-HR: $500K Gtd saw 924 partypoker players take to the table in the quest for glory. Some 120 players received prize money, including Team partypoker’s Josip “Josip_Simunic” Simunic who fell in 92nd place for $1,450 and Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao who busted in 32nd place for $2,350.
The eight stars who navigated their way to the final table locked up $6,950 for their effort, with everyone finishing in seventh-place and above securing a five-figure score.
With only two players remaining, “bagoch” and “GlobalHappiness” paused the tournament clock and discussed a deal for the remaining $149,800 in the prize pool. Those discussion bore fruit and bagoch caimed $71,800 with GlobalHappiness walking away with a cool $78,000.

“SirStanleyRoyce” walked away with a combined score of $178,519 by taking down the POWERFEST #005-HR: $1M Gtd Championship Event PKO, sending 18 opponents to the rail on their way to victory.
Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov, Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell, Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello and Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich all made it into the money, the latter falling in 15th place for $4,464 and a $260 bounty payment.
Fourth-placed “rudiga1” ended the dreams of 14 opponents and netted $13,682 from bounty payments alone. Only SirStanleyRoyce, the tournament’s eventual champion, eliminated more foes with 18 scalps to their name. Those 18 bustouts were worth a massive $83,344, which was more than the second-place prize!
