Two more Grand Prix KO Autumn edition events crowned their champions on October 17, the $320 7-Max High Roller and the $55 Super 50. New Zealand’s Glen Rowe took down the High Roller and scooped an impressive $38,134, while Czech grinder Dalibor Dula triumphed in the Super $50 and walked away with $14,358.
Some 833 PartyPoker players bought into the 7-Max High Roller event and fought it out for a slice of the $250,000 prize pool. Only 124 of those starters navigated their way through to Day 2 where the regular prize pool was awarded. Team Online’s Matthew Staples was among the Day 2 players, but he could only muster a 77th place finish.
With bounties included, each of the seven finalists saw their $320 investment turn into more than $4,500. British star Tom Hall was the first player to crash out from the final table; Hall collected $4,632 for his efforts.
Canadian Reece Stockton ($5,594) joined Hall on the rail, as did Hall’s fellow Brit and PartyPoker regular Ben Warrington ($6,551).
Warrington’s exit left only four players in the hunt for the title, and all four of those players locked in a five-figure sum. John Adderley ($11,905) bowed out in fourth, with Jan-Joost Van Den Bogert ($13,931) joining the list of busted players and sending this event heads-up.
Dylan Rowe locked horns and butted heads against Antonio Ortega of Malta in the final battle of this huge event. Rowe emerged for the battle of the final bounty victoriously and with a haul worth $38,134. Ortega headed into the night with a still very respectable $20,651 consolation prize in tow.

Dula Turns $55 Into Five Figures
Czech Republic’s Dalibor Dula is $14,358 richer than a few days ago courtesy of coming out on top of a 3,071-strong field in the $55 buy-in Super 50 and receiving the lion’s share of the guarantee-busting $153,550 prize pool.
The action on Day 2 was fast and furious and saw the 454 returning players whittled to their champion over the course of seven hours. By the time only seven players remained, and the final table was set, it was anyone’s game to win.
Jeniffer Ritter Da Silva saw her time at the final table limited because she was the first finalist out of the door. Da Silva collected $1,846 for her impressive deep run.
Jonathan Harling ($2,568), Matthieu Rodriguez ($3,633), Nicolas Maillaud ($5,355), and Andrejs Kovalovs ($7,265) bowed out in succession, leaving Brener Henrique Vicente heads-up against Dula.
Both heads-up players guaranteed themselves almost $9,000 from the regular prize pool as they fought it out for the last remaining bounty, itself more than $5,000. Dula captured that bounty as he defeated his Brazilian opponent, thus becoming the latest Grand Prix KO Autumn champion.
