Team partypoker’s Joni Jouhkimainen is a POWERFEST champion after the Finnish superstar took down the $5,200 buy-in High Roller event on April 13.

A compact yet stellar field of 59 entrants competed for a slice of the $295,000 prize pool, but only 11 of them walked away with a return on their initial investment.

Michael Addamo was the 12th place finisher and, therefore, the player who burst the money bubble. Addamo’s elimination paved the way for such luminaries as Sergi Reixach, Eelis Parssinen, and final table bubble boy David Peters to cash in.

Arseniy Malinov’s time at the seven-handed final table was short-lived because he was the first player out of the door. Malinov collected $12,774.

Jouhkimainen’s teammate Mikita Badziakouski bowed out in sixth for $15,270 before Christopher Brewer saw his tournament end in fifth place, a finish worth $19,358.

The prize money kept on growing with the exit of Benjamin Rolle ($25,669), and Andreii Derzhupilskyi ($35,877), the latter’s elimination setting up a one-on-one battle between Jouhkimainen and former MILLIONS Online champion Jon Van Fleet.

Our hero got the job done and his hands on $88,515, leaving Van Fleet to bank $55,201.

Nuter Leads the Race For $480K in the Super High Roller

Timothy Nuter is the man to catch going into Day 2 of the $25,500 Super Hight Roller where more than $480,000 awaits the eventual champion.

Sixty-four players bought in and created a $1,600,000 prize pool, $600,000 more than the advertised $1 million guarantee. Only 11 of those starters cashed, the 11 players who progressed to Day 2.

A whole of stars bought in on Day 1, as you would expect in such a prestigious event. Team partypoker pros Jason Koon, Isaac Haxton, and Mikita Badziakouski bought in twice but failed to punch their Day 2 tickets.

British superstar Stephen Chidwick dusted off his stack in 12th place to bring the curtain down on Day 1 proceedings.

Day 2 sees 11 of poker’s greats return to the partypoker felt, each guaranteed to walk away with at least $54,236. Should they make it into fifth-place or higher, they will secure a six-figure prize.

The chip stacks are quite lopsided when play resumes at 19:05 BST. Nuter, Andras Nemeth, and Luuk Gieles hold 3,764,357 of the 6,400,000 chips in play, while half the returning field have 25 big blinds or less. Sami Kelopuro is the player bringing up the rear. The Finn only has 45,767 chips in his stack, less than three big blinds.
