More than $500,000 was guaranteed to be won on Day 5 of the $15 million POWERFEST at partypoker and this meant there would be plenty of huge scores enjoyed by those players lucky and skilful enough to win or go deep in a POWERFEST event.
POWERFEST #16-H: $25K Gtd FL 7 Card Stud
Prize pool: $25,000
Team partypoker’s Roberto “WelshWizard” Romanello may be better known for this proficiency in no-limit hold’em and pot-limit Omaha games, but on January 25th he showed he can mix it up with the best in seven-card stud.
Romanello topped a field of 50 entrants in the $25,000 guaranteed stud event to get his hands on $8,750 and become the second Team partypoker player to become a POWERFEST champion this series after Joao Simao.
POWERFEST #15-H: $150K Gtd NL Hold’em
Prize pool: $200,000
“bossamtisch1” secured the largest payout of Day 5, banking a cool $40,780 after topping a field of 200 entrants in the POWERFEST #15-H: $150K Gtd NL Hold’em event.
Everyone at the final table was guaranteed $4,600 and this is the sum “watten01” took home for his eighth-place finish. The prize money had increased to five-figures after “x_zola25” and “jokero19891” bust and by the time it was heads-up, the final duo were battling for $40,780.
It was “bossamtisch1” who emerged victorious, defeating online veteran “rdcrsnn” heads-up to resign the runner-up to a still welcomed $29,600 prize.
POWERFEST #14-H: $100K Gtd 1R1A NL Hold’em
Prize pool: $125,000
The POWERFEST #14-H: $100K Gtd 1R1A NL Hold’em event had a start-studded final table where any of the eight players would have made a worthy champion. Two of the finalists, “HeavenlyFather” and “Drulitooo” had already won POWERFEST events. They couldn’t add a second though as they bust in sixth and fifth place for $6,562 and $8,125.
“chazcombes,” a telented British grinder, saw his tournament end in fourth-place and he was the first player to lock up a five-figure prize, namely $11,562. “Doyle_B” fell in third to leave another British pro, “Liftededge,” to take on “SLARVBOGMAJS” for the title.
It was the latter who secured the win ans the $31,250, which happened to be the second-largest cash of the night at partypoker.
