Team PartyPoker’s Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard is one of the best poker tournament players on the planet. He is also the latest champion of our weekly flagship event, the $150,000 guaranteed Sunday Party.

On April 16, Leonard was the last player standing in the Super $320, a result that bagged the popular pro $7,983, including bounties. It was also the day that Leonard navigated his way to Day 2 of the $109 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed Sunday Party, giving himself the opportunity to win two high-stakes poker tournaments in the space of two days.

This weekend’s Sunday Party drew in 1,354 entrants, who fought tooth and nail for the lion’s share of the $150,000 guaranteed prize pool. Day 1 concluded when Leonard’s teammate, Matt “MatthewStaples” Staples crashed out in 16th place at the same time as 17th place finisher “Wuffwuffwuff88.”

Day 2 shuffled up and dealt at 19:05 BST on April 17 with Leonard and 14 other PartyPoker players in the hunt for the title. “Jake.Paul,” who finished eighth in the Grand Prix Spring Main Event a couple of weeks ago, was the first player heading to the rail. They reeled in $1,539 thanks, in part, to almost $1,000 worth of bounties.

By the time the nine-handed final table was set, the least anyone could win from the main prize pool was $966 but that sum was significantly boosted by the bounty payments each player had secured.

8 BlueRedJack $950 $1,225 $2,175
9 Ghggggg $855 $966 $1,821

“Ghggggg” may have reached the Sunday Party’s final table but there time there was short-lived. Ghggggg crashed out in ninth place, and received $1,821 for their efforts. “BlueRedJack” joined the ever-growing list of busted players, their eighth-place finish coming with a $2,179 boost to their bankroll.

Seventh place and $2,179 went to “SixBetShove” before “thatsmaadted” saw their hopes of a victory shattered; they had to make do with a $2,602 sixth-place prize.

The jumps in prize money began growing larger, making each decision more fraught with tension. “Byblood” came unstuck in fifth, and saw $4,312 land in their PartyPoker account. “Sh0es” tripped up in fourth for $5,316, before “Panipak” busted in third for $8,120.

Panipak’s untimely demise left our very own Leonard one-on-one with “ScumGame.” Both players locked in more than $9,400 from the main prize pool, but the final PKO bounty payment was worth almost as much. The vastly experienced Leonard rarely loses once he finds himself heads-up, and last night was not one of those rare occasions. Leonard brushed aside his worthy adversary, and scooped up a total haul worth $18,747, resigning ScumGame to an $11,927 consolation prize.
