Team partypoker’s Roberto Romanello lit up the opening Sunday of POWERFEST VII by storming to two final tables. The Welsh Wizard battled through a 2,110-strong field in the $215 buy-in Event 03-M Title Fight Special Edition event, before finally falling in fourth place for $25,250. In the $2,100 buy-in Super High Roller version of the same event, Romanello fought through an elite field of 237 players to claim his second final table of the night, finishing fifth for $16,440.

POWERFEST VII got under way on Sunday with Event 01, a standard No Limit Hold’Em tournament, with buy-ins of $215, $22 and $2.20. SchelampigaUhu took down Event 01-H for $27,988 after beating LoSientoGrace heads-up. In Event 01-M, PillCosbyShow emerged victorious from the 2,294 field to claim $7,526, with the $2.20 buy-in low edition won by limp-piv for $1,538.

KONY2012 Storms the Super High Roller 

KONY2012 eventually took the Super High Roller title after a heads-up chop with PrettySteph, which saw them take home $56,740 and $51,462 respectively. Sandwich Bacon rounded out the top three, banking $32,880. In the Title Fight Special Edition, the $500k guarantee was narrowly missed, providing some juicy extra value to the thousands of entrants. ABOUDIABY2 took victory for a huge $83,500, the biggest POWERFEST VII prize won so far. DieGuiDekk15 and bdhs secured second and third for $58,850 and $38,000.

Turning $22 Buy-ins Into Big Money

POWERFEST isn’t just about the high rollers though and caters to all bankrolls, however big or small. There are three buy-in levels for each event, and across the 21 tournaments played so far, buy-ins have ranged from $2,100 to $2.20. In the $22 buy-in Event 03-L Title Fight Mini Special Edition, for example, dez192016 was the last man standing from the 3,533-strong field for $9,620. GanhaFLIP and aunt_iris rounded out the podium. With a couple of events so far having missed their guarantees, and 13 days remaining of exciting POWERFEST action, there’s never been a better time to get involved to try and claim a slice of the $15m in total guarantees on offer.

Mixed Game Victories 

It’s not just all about No Limit Hold’Em in POWERFEST VII. On Sunday, GreenNaugahyde beat HellmuthTheGr8 heads-up in the $1,100 buy-in Event 04-H PKO for $24,977. HellmuthTheGr8 won $18,130, with Joao Simao of Team partypoker finishing fifth for $6,737, just ahead of the wonderfully named Dork Pork. In the $109 buy-in medium version of the event, Krobb99 outlasted 1,197 opponents to claim the title and $10,212. FoldFull97 and Dr.MindBender chopped the low edition for $1,510 each, not a bad return on their $11 investment! 

On Monday, nine more tournaments were played. The biggest of those was the $2,100 buy-in Event 07-H, which had 83 entrants. RedDwarf9 took it down for $43,990 ahead of Doyle_B and spinner2255. In the $215 buy-in Event 07-M event, wessie555 came out on top for $19,302. WilliamKassouf and XaaXST chopped the $22 buy-in low edition, winning $4,924 and $4,801 respectively.

Pot Limit Omaha tournaments make up a significant chunk of the schedule, and the first of the PLO events were completed on Monday. In the $530 buy-in Event 05-H 6-Max PLO event, Drulitooo outlasted 215 other entrants and beat FOLDNOOB heads-up to claim the title and $26,899 top prize. Deny888 took down the medium version for $4,650, after making a two-handed deal with bigsexylesha, who came away with $4,484. The $5.50 low edition was won by adrianos1211 for $1,083.

Six-Max Winners 

Six-max is always an exciting form of tournament poker, and Event 02 was no different. SteWiee26 took down Event 02-H for $47,343, just edging out blakjak19 and DBerglin. In the $55 medium version, NightOwl1859 swept past the 1,980 other entrants to the $13,000 top prize. MFP93 transformed his $5.50 buy-in to $2,520 for winning the low edition.

Event 06 was a 6-Max Progressive Knockout NLH tournament, with buy-ins of $530, $55 and $5.50. spinner2255 continued his fantastic start to the POWERFEST, backing up his third-place finish in Event 07-H with the Event 06-H title for $12,625. OjanViskaSyn and StorimosAK rounded out the top three in the 246-player event. The medium edition was won by gaspare366 for $5,625, with dasd69 emerging victorious in the $5.50 low buy-in version for $1,004.
