Joao Simao became the first member of Team partypoker to win an event at the $15 million guaranteed POWERFEST VII after he triumphed in the POWERFEST #13-M: $50K Gtd PKO NL Hold’em tournament.
POWERFEST #13-M: $50K Gtd PKO NL Hold’em
Prize pool: $71,600
Simao wasn’t the only Team partypoker player to reach the money place because Roberto Romanello continued in his good form to finish 19th for $375 and whatever bounties he collected along the way. By the time the final table was set, $665 was the least anyone would take home.
One of the world’s best online poker tournament players, Sweden’s “HellmuthTheGr8” was one of the favourites to win this event but he crashed out in fourth place, paving the way for Simao to become a POWERFEST champion.
Our hero defeated “kartalselami” heads-up to secure the title and the $6,945 prize, plus bounty payments and points for the POWERFEST Leaderboards; Simao currently occupies ninth-place in the High Leaderboard, which means he is on course for $1,500 in cash.

Prize pool: $50,000
Simao also reached the final table of the $530 buy-in pot-limit Omaha Hi/Lo event and banked an additional $3,125 for this efforts. Our Brazilian star came agonisingly close to winning two POWERFEST events in one night, but he crashed out in fifth-place. Team partypoker member Roberto Romanello finished in 11th for $1,369.
Shout out to “Omicron_” who was a deserved winner and who collected $15,640.
POWERFEST #11-H: $50K Gtd Ante-Up NL Hold’em
Prize pool: $56,000
Two of our players found themselves at the final table of the $50K Gtd Ante-Up event, a tournament where the blinds remained constant throughout but the antes increased.
Only seven places were paid and Team partypoker took up two of those spots. The partypoker LIVE President John “John_Duthie” Duthie finished in fifth-place for $3,920 while Natalia “N4talB” Breviglieri went one place deeper and finished in fourth place for $5,040.
