PartyPoker’s POWERFEST commenced last Sunday alongside some other great tournament offerings from 888poker and PokerStars, its two biggest competitors. While this might have been a very heated and competitive day for the operators, for online poker tournament players and fans this was a big day filled with lots of fun and action-packed gaming.

The main highlight of the March 31PartyPoker event was the Powerfest #03-Super High Roller: $500K Guaranteed 8-Max which is a $5,2000 buy-in Super High Roller. A total of 141 poker players bought into the event to create a $705,000 prize pool which was eventually shared among the top 20 finishers of the events. The biggest winners at the event were the eight of the players at the final table – the least amount was received was $21,150 and was awarded to “TIMEXCNT”, a Canadian player.

Coming in at the seventh spot on the final table showdown was British player “Equilibrium_x” and he walked away with a $26,649 cash prize. Team PartyPoker pro Joao “joaosimaobh” Sima, managed a sixth-place finish and collected a $33,487 cash prize. At the fifth spot was Jonathan “proudflop” Proudfoot with a $42,300 win. The next casualty was “omgitsgiraf”, a UK-based Belgian poker star who added a $59,925 cash prize to his bankroll.

With only three players left, the fight for the top prize was beginning to get more heated with the players struggling to get to the top two spots which guaranteed six-figure scores for the players who made it that far. Austrian pro “mwhldwn” came in third and narrowly missed out on the six-figure cash prize but he was still able to pad his bankroll with a neat $84,6000.

The final showdown was between Hungary’s “wildace10” and Sam Greenwood with the latter continuing his impressive run by taking down the event for a whopping $162,079. The Hungarian “wildace10” came in second with an impressive $116,325 cash prize which is, by all means, still very impressive.

The POWERFEST #4-High Roller Event

The $2,000 buy-in Powerfest #04-HR: $500K Gtd PKO 8-Max event also attracted lots of attention and featured a field of 250 players. It was also in a PKO format which means that some of the bounty payments were massive – the top players, for instance, received substantial amounts as shown below:
