$60 million POWERFEST Day 2 highlights

- Buy-in: $530
- Entries: 194
- Prize pool: $100,000
- Places paid: 24
POWERFEST #013-HR: $100K Gtd Fast Mix-Max saw 194 players take to the new and improved partypoker tables and only 24 of those starters made it into the money. A min-cash was worth $1,273 with a final table appearance guaranteeing at least $4,000.
As the tournament was one of the new Mix-Max formats, play started on eight-handed tables before switching to 6-max after Level 19, which added a new dimension to the event.
Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello busted in 16th place for a $1,300 score, leaving Simao as the last Team partypoker member in the tournament. Simao navigated his way to the final three, but he couldn’t quite get the job done and he was eliminated in third-place, a finish worth $11,250.
Congratulations to “Paul_Folders” who defeated “IEatBears” heads-up to secure the title and $24,906.

- Buy-in: $1,050
- Entries: 359
- Prize pool: $366,180
- Places paid: 48
Simao wasn’t the only partypoker sponsored player to reach a POWERFEST final table on Day 2 because Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello found himself in the final six of the POWERFEST #011-HR: $300K Gtd 6-Max PKO event.
A field of 359 ensured the $300,000 guarantee was beaten by more than $66,000 and this huge prize pool was shared among the top 48 finishers.
Each of the six players at the final table locked up $6,821 plus however many bounties they claimed along the way. Romanello was responsible for the exits of seven players on his way to the final table, so he banked $6,036 in addition to the $6,821 he collected for finishing in sixth-place.
The biggest winner, thanks to them becoming the event’s champion, was “RosenheimCops” who netted $35,900 for finishing in first-place and a further $32,391 worth of bounty payments for what was a very profitable day at the partypoker tables.

After Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov walked away with $159,000 on the opening day of POWERFEST, we thought our favourite Russian may have taken a day away from playing poker. We were wrong.
At one stage, it looked like Filatov was going to repeat his Day 1 heroics in the POWERFEST #011-H: $200K Gtd 6-Max PKO event, but he came unstuck in the latter stages, busting in 12th place for $1,431 and $493 worth of bounties.
British pro “MAKKAPAKK” emerged as a worthy champion to secure the $17,843 top prize. MAKKAPAKK also eliminated 20 opponents, nine more than anyone else in the tournament, on his way to victory so saw an additional $14,396 in bounty payments added to his account.
