A bumper crowd of 203 players paid $5,200 for the chance to become the POWERFEST #049-SHR: $1M Gtd Championship Event PKO champion, creating a $1,035,300 prize pool as a result.
Thirty-two places were paid and Team partypoker’s Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell fell in 44th place to narrowly miss out on yet another cash. Bicknell’s team mates Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen and Roberto”WelshWizard” Romanello both reached the money, falling in 26th and 25th place respectively, each bagging $5,278 and Jouhkimainen netting $8,125 worth of bounties.
Romanello wasn’t the partypoker pro to progress the deepest in this tournament. That honour went to Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard who played his way to a fifth-place finish worth $27,912 plus an additional $10,806 courtesy of sending three opponents to the rail.
Runner-up Sergio “nomoneynoglory” Aido was the player to collect the most scalps with 10 opponents falling at his feet. This meant the talented UK-based Spaniard banked $51,898 worth of bounties to go with his $75,110 prize money.
BackDoorMat was the player of the tournament, finishing on top for a $103,479 first-place prize and a further $123,698 worth of bounties.
