Every poker tournament player wants to go into a major series in good form. Running well and finding yourself on the right side of variance instils confidence, and there are few PartyPoker players as confident as “o Paz ta ON” right now going into the upcoming MILLIONS Online KO series.

o Paz ta ON is brimming with confidence after navigating their way through a 1,257-strong crowd in the latest edition of the $109 Sunday Party. Our flagship weekly tournament has found itself in the headlines recently due to Team PartyPoker’s Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard taking it down in back-to-back week.

Leonard could only muster a 234th place finish during his attempt to complete his hat trick, falling close to the money bubble as 215 places were paid. Leonard’s team mate, Matt “MatthewStaples” Staples, managed to cash. Staples bowed out in 177th place for $113.34 plus $62.50 from the bounty prize pool.

The Grand Ends in a Three-Way Deal

A compact yet stellar field of 55 PartyPoker players took to the virtual this weekend in the $1,050 Grand. Those 55 fought tooth and nail to reach the top 11 finishing places where we dished out the $60,000 prize pool.

The final table read like a who’s who of the online poker world. Hans Nissen ($2,515), Dylan Rowe ($2,676), and our very own Patrick Leonard ($2,979) were the first three casualties.

Finnish star Antero Sillanpaa ($3,455), and Swedish legends Simon Mattsson ($4,151) and Niklas Astedt ($5,222) joined the ever-growing list of eliminated players.

The final three players struck a deal that concluded The Grand for another week. Samuel Vousden, who many of you may know as “€uorp€an” in online poker circles, finished third for $9,044, Thiago Taira was the runner-up and banked $12,502, leaving New Zeland’s David Yan to pad his PartyPoker bankroll with a $12,736 first-place prize.
