POWERFEST #17-H: $200K Gtd 6-Max NL Hold’em
Prize pool: $200,000
Simao won the $50,000 Gtd PKO event on Day 4 of POWERFEST and now has banked an additional $62,561 by winning this star-studded tournament.
It was no surprise that this $2,100 buy-in POWERFEST event attracted some of the best poker players in the world to the partypoker virtual felt. Team partypoker Roberto Romanello bust in 15th place, three places outside of the money.
Some of those to finish in the top 12 and bank some prize money included “SanityWaterline,” “ADRIEN_BRODY” and our very own Richard “RichyDubini” Dubini who bust fourth for $17,500.
“RedDwarf9,” another POWERFEST champion, bust in third to leave Simao and “COCAL_GRINDER” to lock horns heads-up for the title. Our Brazilian sensation got the job done to leave the runner-up to collect $39,000 while adding $62,561 to his own bankroll.

Simao bust in seventh-place and collected $4,240, but it was “spinner2255” who emerged victorious and when the dust had settled, his account was credited with $25,970. spinner2255’s win pushed him up to second-place in the High Leaderboard and he is now on course for a $7,500 cash prize; “Drulitooo” is the current leader.
