One of the reasons for the impressive rise in prize money won was Team Online’s Patrick Tardif’s deep run in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-handed World Series of Poker (WSOP) event. Tardif narrowly missed out on a final table appearance, busting in ninth-place for a $59,338 haul, the second-largest individual prize won by our team, slightly less than the $59,833 Joao Simao won for his 16th place finish in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Millionaire Maker earlier at the WSOP.
Roberto Romanello, chasing that elusive Triple Crown, also cashed in the event Tardif went deep in. The Welshman saw his tournament end in 82nd place for $8,029.
Another Team partypoker player who cashed in that event was Anatoly Filatov. Our Russian star finished in 85th place for $8,029 and secured his ninth in-the-money finish when he crashed out of the $888 Crazy Eights event in 517th place for $2,693.
Austria’s Josip Simunic was one of the three Team partypoker players to cash in the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Vegas Main Event. Simunic went the deepest, busting in 15th place for $45,000. Teammates Joao Simao finished in 33rd for $30,000 with Team Online’s Hristivoje Pavlovic collecting $30,000 for his 45th place finish.
