Vicent Bosca Ramon is a POWERFEST champion after the United Kingdom-based Spaniard navigated his way to the top of the pile in the $5,200 High Roller event on April 22.
A compact field of 60 players took to the partypoker tables in the 23rd numbered POWERFEST event, and created a $300,000 prize pool. Only the top 11 finishers received a slice of this pie, so spare a thought for Niall McKenna who finished in 12th place with only the unwanted title of bubble boy to show for their efforts.
Canadian Jonah Silverstein crashed out of the final table in sixth and collected $15,529. Samuel Vousden followed Silverstein to the cashier’s desk to bank the $19,686 fifth-place prize.
The final table became even more short-handed when Fabrizio Gonzalez ran out of steam, and more so when Ioannis Angelou Konstas fell by the wayside in third. Those two Goliaths netted scores worth $26,104 and $36,486 respectively.
Heads-up pitted Ramon against Sam Greenwood, Greenwood being one of the biggest winners on the partypoker LIVE circuit. The heads-up pair opted to strike a deal for the remaining prize pool, which resulted in Greenwood finishing second for $69,248 and Ramon banking $76,903 and the title of POWERFEST champion.
