Alex Foxen and Barry Hutter kicked off POWERFEST in style by triumphing in the $5,200 High Roller and $2,100 High Roller Opener respectively. The talented high stakes specialist each bagged six-figure prizes, let us see exactly how much they won.
Foxen Becomes a POWERFEST Champion
A field of 91 players bought into the $5,200 POWERFEST #03 – High Roller event and only 14 of them walked away with a slice of the $500,000 prize pool. Spare a thought for Alexander Tarnok who was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble.
The likes of Juan Pardo Dominguez, Chris Brewer, Ole Schemion, Francois Billard, and final table bubble boy Jon Van Fleet helped themselves to a slice of the half-million dollar pie.
Each of the finalists guaranteed themselves at least $20,094. Kevin Macdonald banked this sum when he fell in seventh place. Michael Addamo and Joakim Andersson were the next casualties; they collected $24,379 and $31,252.
Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell came unstuck in fourth, a finish worth $42,474, before David Peters‘ elimination in third, worth $60,049, left Foxen heads-up against Christoph Vogelsang.
Foxen busted Vogelsang in second place to secure the $137,317 top prize, leaving Vogelsang to reel in an $87,991 consolation prize.

Hutter Comes Out On Top In The High Roller Opener
Forty-one of the 281 starters in the $2,100 POWERFEST #01 – High Roller Opener returned to the partypoker tables on April 11 to compete for a share of a $562,000 prize pool. A whole host of stars were among those returnees.
Joao Vieira, Luke Reeves, Mike Watson, Ali Imsirovic, Niklas Astedt, our very own Kristen Bicknell, Darren Elias, and Samuel Vousden were just a handful of superstars who saw a return on their $2,100 investment.
Andrii Derzhypilskyi was the final table’s first casualty. Claas Segebrecht, Wietse Hasper, and Brazilian sensation Bruno Volkmann joined Derzhypilskyi on the rail.
Third place and $52,295 went to Kevin Kai Ka, whose exit left Sami Kelopuro and Barry Hutter heads-up for the title. Hutter and Kelopuro tussled for the title, but did not entertain a deal even though there was a $33,188 difference in the payouts. This meant Hutter walked away with $107,718 when he defeated his Finnish opponent, leaving Kelopuro to secure the $74,530 runner up prize.
