POWERFEST #142-SHR: $1M Gtd Championship Event
- Buy-in: $5,200
- Entries: 327
- Prize pool: $1,635,000
- Places paid: 48
The POWERFEST #142-SHR: $1M Gtd Championship Event drew a field of 327 players who created a $1,635,000 prize pool that was shared among the top 48 finishers. Spare a thought for Team partypoker’s Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell who busted in 50th place to narrowly miss out on another in-the-money finish.
Bicknell’s team-mate, Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen did cash, busting in 30th place for $13,897.
The least amount of money anyone at the final table could win was $30,411 and this was awarded to eighth-place finisher “Sheparentao”. They were followed to the rail by “ubicaprofi”, “PickYouOFF” and Oliver “sk2ll_m0dR” Weis, the latter being the fifth-place finish and the last player not to collect a six-figure score.
“BuyThaPot”, a regular in our high buy-in events, finished in fourth-place and banked $113,632 with “NoLoitering” falling next and scooping $158,595. This left Sami “LarsLuzak1” Kelopuro and “A3PTEH” to lock horns for the $317,190 first-place prize.
It was Kelopuro who emerged victorious, grabbing the $317,190 with both hands and leaving A3PTEH to collect a still huge $228,900 consolation prize.

- Buy-in: $215
- Entries: 2,702
- Prize pool: $556,612
- Places paid: 344
A huge field of 2,702 players turned out in force for the POWERFEST #144-H: $500K Gtd Championship Event PKO to smash the $500,000 guarantee by $56,612.
Team partypoker members Renato “renatononumra” Nomura, Bertrand “ElkY_” Grospellier, Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell, Day “daykotoviezy” Kotoviezy, Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard and Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich all cashed, the latter falling in 73rd place.
The player of the hour, however, was “NotoriousGIB” who topped the monster-sized field to get their hands on a combined score worth a cool $67,434. They defeated “AzorAhai” heads-up to bank this massive sum, resigning the runner-up to a $30,897 prize from the main prize pool and an additional $7,950 worth of bounty payments.
We launched some brand new MILLIONS Online satellites where we are adding $5,300 seats to the prize pool instead of simply guaranteeing a seat. This means there will always be an extra seat to be won in these satellites regardless of the prize pool accumulated.
There are also some excellent Phased Satellites that run every two hours from 16:00-02:00 CET. You take your chip stacks from each Phased Satellite through to a weekly “Final Phase” Qualifier where 10 seats, worth $5,300 each, are added to the prize pool, meaning there’s a huge $5,000 in added-value to be won every week!
