POWERFEST Day 1 Recap
POWERFEST #03-SHR: $500K Gtd
Prize pool: $630,000
Places paid: 16
Brazilian sensation Renato “renato_nomura” Nomura was the first of our heroes to reach a final table, doing so in the POWERFEST #03-SHR: $500K Gtd. It was a tournament commanding a $5,200 buy-in and 126-players stumped up the cash to create a $630,000 prize pool that was shared among the top 16 finishers.
Nomura eventually fell in seventh-place to turn his $5,200 investment into a $25,200 haul. “Player2341” was the first casualty of the eight-handed final table.
After Nomura bust, “SunTzu”, “PunchlineEnBata”, “Van_Vian_Van” and “tdlvechickenbn” crashed out for score ranging between $31,500 and $78,750.
Heads-up saw “aaabbb” and “PauliBet” clash and no deal was struck despite a $44,100 difference between first and second place. The winner was PauliBet who scooped the $154,350 top prize, leaving aaabbb to collect $110,250.
POWERFEST #04-HR: $400K Gtd PKO
Prize pool: $416,150
Places paid: 32
The $2,100 buy-in POWERFEST #04-HR: $400K Gtd PKO looked set to be taken down by the one and only Roberto “R_Romanello” Romanello, but the Welsh star ran out of steam midway through the final table.
“Brachiosuarus” busted in eighth-place for more than $14,000 (including bounties) and was joined on the rail by “I-Am-Benjami” and “Kroat..” Fifth-place and a haul of more than $20,000 went to “CarpePiscis” before Romanello’s impressive run came to an end in fourth-place, which banked him $17,237 from the main prize pool and $3,281 in bounty payments. Good game, sir.
Our champion in this high roller was “DasIstMirWurst” whose victory saw their partypoker account bolstered with $32,728 for winning the tournament and $50,170 from the bounty prize pool. Congratulations also to “vaueffell” wh was the runner-up for a $32,687 prize boosted by $24,609 worth of bounties.
POWERFEST #06-HR: $250K Gtd Fast PKO
Prize pool: $234,600
Places paid: 32
Jeff “JeffGross” Gross was the third Team partypoker player to reach a POWERFEST X Day 1 final table. Gross entered the POWERFEST #06-HR: $250K Gtd Fast PKO for $1,050 along with 229 other players to create a $234,600 prize pool.
Gross’ impressive run ended in a fifth-place finish worth $7,807 plus $4,428. Only two other players won more from the bounty prize pool than Gross, showing an aggressive approach can yield great results in PKO events.
Those two bounty-hungry players were fourth-placed “lil4funn” who collected $8,194 from the bounty prize pool in addition to their $11,072 score, and our champion “eGGplant” whose $21,023 top prize saw $26,654 from the bounty prize pool added to it.
A special mention also to the one and only Jaime “jaimestaples” Staples who finished in seventh place in the POWERFEST #07-HR: $50K Gtd 6-Max Hyper PKO Battle for a $1,203 prize plus an additional $1,566 worth of bounty payments.
