Team partypoker members Sam Trickett and Jeff Gross enjoyed their POWERFEST sessions on March 29 as they both reached final tables of big buy-in events. There was also a massive event that saw the top four finishers all walk away with six-figure prizes! Let’s take a look at what went down.
POWERFEST #136-SHR: $250K Gtd PLO 6-Max
Eighty-three players exchanged $5,200 for the chance to become the POWERFEST #136-SHR: $250K Gtd PLO 6-Max champion. This meant the $250,000 guaranteed was smashed to smithereens and $415,000 was up for grabs. The top 12 finishers received a slice of the pie, with prize money weighing in at $17,637 by the time the final table was set.
“Crackalackin” busted in sixth-place and banked $17,637. Then it was the time of our hero Sam “SamTrickett” Trickett to run out of steam. Trickett couldn’t quite finish the job this time and had to make do with the $25,937 fifth-place prize.
Basketball fan “LakersLebron23” collected $36,312 for their fourth-place exit, with the in-form “Robbery9999” scooping $49,800 when their tournament ended in third place.
Heads-up saw “Carnotaurus” and “kuukuna66” fight it out. There was no deal despite an almost $50,000 difference between the two finishing places. This meant kuukuna66 got their hands on an impressive $129,814 when they emerged from battle victoriously. Our runner-up banked a cool $80,925.

POWERFEST #140-HR: $150K Gtd 8-Max PKO Fast
Jeff “JeffGross” Gross has been going deep in POWERFEST events seemingly at will and he did that again in the POWERFEST #140-HR: $150K Gtd 8-Max PKO Fast.
The $530 buy-in event attracted a field of 317 who ensured the guarantee was beaten by almost $15,000.
Gross navigated his way to heads-up where he faced off with “Pablos” for the title, all under the watchful eye of his army of Twitch followers. The final hand saw Gross jam for 17.5 big blinds with and Pablos instantly call with . The board ran , which was of no help at all for Gross and he walked away with $12,448 plus $3,420 worth of bounties.
Congratulations to Pablos who secured the $12,464 top prize and a massive bounty payment worth $19,962.

POWERFEST #137-SHR: $1M Gtd Phase Final
The POWERFESST #137-SHR: $1M Gtd Phase Final was massive, gargantuan in fact, with a guarantee-busting prize pool of $1,423,305, more than $420,000 more than advertised. Thanks for your incredible support!
Two Team partypoker members reached the top 40 places where the prize money was dished out. Roberto “R_Romanello” Romanello crashed out in 26th place for $13,521. Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard saw his tournament end in 21st place for $16,083.
“RainMan74” was the first of the eight finalists to scoop some money, namely $28,466. They were joined on the rail by “buck21” ($39,140), “BlueMagic1” ($55,508) and “WatchMeDance”, the latter waltzing away with $74,011.
Amazingly, the top four finishers all padded their bankrolls with six-figure prizes!
“iRunStims” has been awesome during POWERFEST and they locked up the $104,612 fourth-place prize. Third place and £143,753 went to “JailWallet”. Their exit set up a clash between “nomeansyes” and “NotDarwin”.
The pay jump was almost $80,000 yet the last two remaining players decided to fight it out without a deal. Nomeansyes fell at the final hurdle and got their hands on the $204,955 runner-up prize, which left NotDarwin to evolve their buy-in into a giant $283,237.
