Spanish superstar Juan Pardo Dominguez is a POWERFEST champion after he came out on top of a 138-strong field in the $1,575 buy-in POWERFEST #06 – High Roller Super Seven event on April 12.
Pardo Dominguez’s victory comes almost exactly three years to the day that he finished second to David Kitai in the €25,500 Super High Roller event at the partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona.
POWERFEST #06 – High Roller Super Seven Final Table Results
|1||Juan Pardo Dominguez||United Kingdom||$42,095*|
|2||Alexandros Theologis||United Kingdom||$36,172*|
|3||Srikant Vedutla||United Kingdom||$22,493|
*reflects a heads-up deal
Only 23 of the 138 starters saw a return on their investment. Reigning World Series of Poker Hybrid Main Event champion Damian Salas was the 24th place finisher, which earned the Argentinian the unwanted title of bubble boy.
A whole host of star followed Salas to the sidelines, albeit with some prize money to show for their efforts.
WPTWOC Mix-Max Championship winner Andrey Kotelnikov was among those who finished in the money. As were Jon Van Fleet, Bruno Volkmann, Niklas Astedt, Daniel Dvoress, Sam Vousden, and our very own Patrick Leonard; Leonard finished ninth, and narrowly missed out on a final table appearance.
All but two of the finalists padded their bankrolls with five-figure prizes. Seventh place finisher Peter Traply banked $7,154 with Bulgarian Fahredin Mustafov busting in sixth for an $8,801 score.
Fifth place and $11,527 when to Ivan Zufic who won an online WSOP bracelet last summer. His wait for a POWERFEST title continues. Alex Varga finished in fourth and won $15,440, with the elimination of Srikant Vedutla in third place, a finish worth $22,493, sending the tournament into the heads-up stage.
Here, Pardo Dominguez locked horns with the uber-talented Alexandros Theologis. The pair struck a deal to lessen the pay jumps, which meant Theologis scooped $36,172 when he fell at the final hurdle. Pardo Dominguez raked in $42,095 and exorcised the demons from that runner-up finish three years ago.

Those preferring the traditional satellite route have some value-packed satellites waiting for you. There is a $2,600 buy-in Super High Roller satellite at 17:05 BST that has three seats guaranteed. It is a phase satellite, which means you can win your way into it from a mere $0.01!
The Super MILLION Phase Satellite tree goes: $0.01 > $5.50 > $33 > $265 > $2,600. Imagine turning $0.01 into a shot at a $1 million prize pool!
It’s a similar story for the $2,100 POWERFEST #08 High Roller Knockout. Phase satellite start at only $2.20, while the $5,200 buy-in POWERFEST #09 High Roller has satellites costing $0.01 > $2.20 > $16.50 > $109 > $530.
This could be your best chance of rubbing shoulders with the games elite. Alternatively, these high stakes events could be the softest on record thanks to the influx of low-stakes satellite players winning their seats for pennies!
