You heard of the famous story where Jack “Treetop” Straus found himself down to a single chip only to go on and win the World Series of Poker Main Event, coining the phrase “a chip and a chair”?
We almost had a similar result on POWERFEST Day 8 with Team Online’s Travis “DramatcDegen” Darroch who was down to 1.5 big blinds at the final table of the POWERFEST #41-H: $250K Gtd Fast PKO only to finish second for more than $34,000.
A staggering $5,241,835 was paid out on POWERFEST Day 8, a sum that would not have been possible without your incredible support, so thank you! Let’s check out the biggest results of Day 8.

Travis “DramaticDegen” Darroch was one of the 257 entries in the POWERFEST #41-H: $250K Gtd Fast PKO having won his $1,050 seat in a $109 satellite. The writing looked to be on the wall as Darroch was down to only 1.5 big blinds at one stage, but fought back to finish in second-place for a $20,184 prize boosted by $14,803 from the bounty prize pool.
The champion was “PayAndPlay” who locked up yet another POWERFEST title, this one weighing in at $20,210 plus $24,131.
Those players finishing in third-place through fifth all walked away with a five-figure prize once bounties were taken into consideration.
“Zootopia” won $14,166 plus $5,037 with “Sagittarius” walking away with $10,309 plus $260. “FullFlush1” netted $7,293 plus an additional $3,152 from the bounty prize pool.
POWERFEST Phased 01-HR: $750K Gtd Final

If you ever needed evidence that our Phased tournaments are superb value, you only have to look at the final table payouts of the POWERFEST Phased 01-HR: $750K Gtd Final event.
Players have been playing Phase 1 tournaments into this $2,100 buy-in event all week and a field of 348 fought for a slice of the $756,800 prize pool. The top 48 finishers received prize money, but nobody banked more than “eMpTyTease” who got their hands on a massive $146,819.
The champion defeated “Noname69” heads-up for the title, but it is difficult to feel sorry for the runner-up as they raked in $105,952.
