Nine more champions were crowned on Day 3 of the $15 million guaranteed partypoker POWERFEST and Team partypoker’s Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov came agonisingly close to being one of them.
Filatov was the last Team partypoker players standing in the POWERFEST #09-H: $150K Gtd NL Hold’em event, a tournament that saw 197 player exchange $1,050 to compete in it. Roberto Romanello and Joao Simao both fell outside of the money places, although Patrick Leonard finished in 25th place for $2,048.
$40,168 awaited the winner of this event and Filatov has his eye firmly on the prize when he reached the eight-handed final table. Two players bust to leave only six players in the hunt for the title then disaster struck for Filatov as he exited in sixth-place for an $8,274 score.
The event was eventually taken down by “HeavenlyFather” who defeated “TriggerWord” heads-up to bank $40,168, leaving the runner-up to secure a $29,156 prize.

Eighteen players received prize money and Filatov was one of them after he bust in 17th place for $2,036.
