Another nine events took place on the second day of the $15 million guaranteed POWERFEST at partypoker and all nine tournaments surpassed their guarantees.
The biggest of these nine events was the POWERFEST #07-H: $150K Gtd No Limit Hold’em, a $2,100 buy-in tournament that saw 83 players take to the felt.

Those who did reach the final table locked up $5,810 for their efforts; this is the sum “JHelppi” secured when he fell in eighth-place. The prize money increased steadily with each player’s exit until only “Doyle_B” and “RedDwarf9” remained in the hunt for the title.
RedDwarf finally defeated Doyle_B and got his hands on $43,990, leaving Doyle_B to claim the $30,710 consolation prize.
