POWERFEST: $75K Gtd 8-6 Mix-Max PKO Fast
Seventy-six players bought into this event for $1,050 and the final table was dominated by players sporting the famous orange diamond.
Ludovic Gelich saw his tournament end in a sixth-place finish. This netted the popular Scotsman $1,885 from the main prize pool plus an additional $3,103 from the bounty prize pool.
Roberto Romanello joined Geilich In the payouts. Fifth-place weighed in at a combined $4,723 for the Welsh Wizard. Then came the exit of Charlie Godwin, who was by far the last woman standing in this event. Godwin padded her partypoke bankroll with a total prize worth $4,662.
Next came the elimination of one of the game’s greats. Hungarian superstar Andras Nemeth fell in third and walked away with $9,532 in total. His exit set up a one-on-one battle between our very own Joni Jouhkimainen and Germany’s Bernd Vogelhuber.
Jouhkimainen is enjoying a purple patch of form right now so it was no surprise he got his hands on the title and a combined top prize worth a cool $21,818. Vogelhuber’s second-place finish netted him $10,078 with bounties included.
POWERFEST: $100K Gtd 6-Max PLO
A more compact field of 59 players turned out for the $2,100 buy-in POWERFEST: $100K Gtd 6-Max PLO and one of our own almost came away with its title.
Norwegian star Andreas Torbergsen was the final table’s first casualty. His sixth-place exit saw $5,310 make its way to his account. Chris Hunichen’s impressive run ended in fifth place, a result that saw him collect $7,760.
Fourth-place and the first five-figure prize, $10,620, went to Christopher Frank before Ludovic Geilich scooped the $14,160 third-place prize. Geilich loves PLO and it showed in this event with yet another deep run in a field against the world’s best four-card players.
Heads-up was a battle of South Americans with Juan Carlos Rincon of Panama taking on Brazil’s Yuri Dzivielevski. Rincon was the man who came out of that clash with his hands on all the chip. Reward for victory weighed in at an impressive $40,817, with second-place yielding $26,550.

POWERFEST: $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO
Three of our players reached the eight-handed final table of a $2,100 PKO event, too. Sadly, none of them could quite manage to win.
David Peters is no stranger to major final tables but his run ended in sixth-place with Alex Foxen crashing out one place later in fifth. These high roller specialists saw $10,111 and $12,300 make its way to their partypoker accounts respectively.
The last standing member of Team partypoker was Team Online’s Jeff Gross. He fell in fourth for a combined $10,434. Gross has been incredible during the POWERFEST but an outright victory still somehow eludes him.
Chad Eveslage crashed out in third to set up the heads-up match against partypoker LIVE regular Pavel Plusev and British grinder Scott Margereson. The latter was the man who got his hands on the lion’s share of the prize pool, namely $49,484. Plusev consoled himself with $36,863.
