The biggest win at partypoker on May 16th was that of “Anton1958” who triumphed in the POWERFEST #59-HR: $200K Gtd PKO NL Hold’em to get their hands on almost $50,000.
Anton1958 was one of 524 entrants in the $530 buy-in event, which saw its $200,000 guarantee smashed by some $68,550. Half of this chunky prize pool was shared among the top 72 finishers with the other half awarded as bounty payments to anyone who sent an opponent to the showers.
Each of the eight people who battled their way to the final table locked up a minimum of $2,148 plus any scalps they had claimed along the way. Nobody bust more opponents that the eventual champion, Anton1958, who eliminated 16 foes on their way to victory, which meant they banked $24,459 from the bounty prize pool and $24,418 from the prize pool
POWERFEST #60-HR: $200K Gtd 6-Max NL Hold’em
- Buy-in: $1,050
- Entries: 386
- Prize pool: $386,000
- ITM: 48
Two Team partypoker players navigated their way into the top 48 finishing positions of the POWERFEST #60-HR: $200K Gtd 6-Max NL Hold’em to see a nice return on their $1,050 investment.
“Loewe80” was the first player to bust from the six-handed final table, a finish worth $14,668. They were followed to the rail by “Doyle_B” in fifth-place for $21,230; Doyle_B earlier finished third in POWERFEST #59-HR: $200K Gtd PKO NL Hold’em for more than $12,600 including bounty payments.
Pay jumps continued as players fell by the wayside until only “p0chlmonsta” and “nolet20” remained in the hunt for the $77,200 top prize. This princely sum is now nestled in the account of nolet20 who defeated their heads-up opponent to resign the runner-up to a, still healthy, consolation prize of $57,128.
POWERFEST #60-H: $200K Gtd 6-Max NL Hold’em
- Buy-in: $215

- ITM: 132
More than one thousand players turned out for the $215 buy-in POWERFEST #60-H: $200K Gtd 6-Max NL Hold’em to ensure the guarantee was surpassed.
The action was fast and furious thanks to the short-handed format and by the time the final table was set, each player was guaranteed $5,139 for their efforts. POWERFEST serial casher “Hahaha_Owned” collected $8,316 for their fifth-place finish but the night belonged to “mrCarmenez” who emerged victorious to get their hands on a bankroll-boosting $33,567.
