Team partypoker’s Renato Nomura and Jeff Gross continue to tear up the POWERFEST. The talented duo navigated their way to another final table each and both walked away with almost $20,000 to show for their efforts.
POWERFEST: $100K Gtd 8-6 Mix-Max Deepstack
Our Mix-Max tournaments are popular with our players thanks to them having the unique twist of switching table sizes during the event. This $100,000 guaranteed Mix-max, which had a $129,000 prize pool, went from eight-handed to six-handed.
“Dhr. Dogsome” reached the final table but their time there was short-lived as they fell in sixth, a finish worth $5,160. “PabloPotato” busted in fifth for $7,740 before “TheMightyHorse” was put out to pasture in fourth-place for a $10,384 addition to their bankroll.
Heads-up was set when “ShipAndDate” shipped in their stack and lost. Third-place in this tournament yielded a $14,215 score. ShipAndDate’s exit left Team partypoker’s Renato “renato_nomura” Nomura and “SunTzu” to fight it out heads-up.
Unfortunately for our hero, Nomura couldn’t get the job done and fell in second place. The Brazilian star padded his bankroll with $19,995 leaving SunTzu to be crowned champion and collect $30,315.

POWERFEST: $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO
If there was an award for Player of the POWERFEST then Jeff “JeffGross” Gross would be right up there in the nominations; he’s been incredible this series.
Gross hit yet another high stakes final table when he made his way to the last eight of the $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO event last night. It looked like he may go all the way at one stage but it wasn’t meant to be.
A host of stars fell in succession, including the extremely talented Swede “Greenstone25” who crashed in fourth-place. Greenstone25 saw their bankroll increase by $12,725 from the main prize pool and an additional $3,445 worth of bounty payments.
This left Gross in the final three and within touching distance of the title. Gross, however, came unstuck and had to console himself with a third-place prize worth $17,965 which was bolstered by $918 from the bounty prize pool.
Heads-up pitted “NOLIMITHOLDEM” against “gastrader” in a battle where the final bounty payment weighed in at almost as much as first and second place payments combined!
gastrader busted in second-place and won the $24,689 runner-up prize plus $8,547 worth of bounties. NOLIMITHOLDEM scooped the $24,717 top prize and a gargantuan bounty payment worth $48,775!

POWERFEST: $150K Gtd PLO 6-Max
Our players love pot-limit Omaha which is one of the reasons we recently revamped our PLO schedule. This PLO POWERFEST event commanded a $5,200 buy-in, which was paid by 48-entrants. These stars went to battle in an attempt to secure a slice of the guarantee-busting $240,000 prize pool.
Only the final table of six won some prize money for their efforts. “Tiltargh” was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble, falling in seventh-place.
“TheCleaner11_” won the first slice of the pie, namely $12,973, after crashing out in sixth. “Carnotaurus” and “pkrbt” joined TheCleaner11_ on the rail, doing so with prizes worth $16,800 and $21,600 resepctively.
“San holo1” saw their tournament come to an abrupt end in third-place. This deep run netted San holo1 an impressive $31,200, approximately half the $61,426 “DONKEY6666” won when they fell at the final hurdle.
This meant “MUNJOSHuHa” collected the $96,000 top prize and the title of champion.
