$69m awarded throughout partypoker’s largest festival to date
The latest installment in partypoker’s flagship POWERFEST series concluded this past Sunday, 23 September, to sign off the site’s largest online festival to date.
Across the course of the 22-day series, more than $69 million in prize money was awarded over 669 events, with 20 Championship Event winners crowned and 21 players banking combined six-figure scores. Overall POWEFEST drew a combined 946,000 entrants as the series continues to prove its appeal across players of all tastes and bankrolls.
Brazil cemented their place at the top of the country standings to finish the series with 105 wins to the UK’s 92, with Russia claiming bronze on 80 victories.
At 604, the UK made the most final table appearances over Brazil’s 572 showings, narrowly pipping Russia on 570.
Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard enjoyed a fruitful series, celebrating a duo of victories in events “#042-HR: $200K Gtd [6-Max PKO]” & “#083-HR: $300K Gtd [6-Max PKO]” for a total $110,865, while Leonard’s compatriot, Kristen Bicknell helped herself to a title in “#136-H: $150K Gtd [PKO],” worth $21,898.
The UK’s ‘Paul_Folders’ stands alone as the only player with a quintet of wins to their name, yielding a handsome $241,645.18 for the remarkable showing.
Elsewhere High-Roller specialist, Steve O’Dwyer added another title to his glittering CV as he took down the $3 million GTD Super High Roller for $896,610 – making him comfortably the series biggest winner.
