POWERFEST X.

For this little ditty, we focus on the termites who invaded partypoker’s POWERFEST X for 15 glorious days and 275 events. The tournament series pulled in $33,595,117 in prize money, with the final day accumulating and delivering $8,660,291.

On that final day, the spit-roasted boar with an apple in its mouth was the $10,000 buy-in, $1m GTD Super High Roller. Kristen Bicknell once again proved herself to be goosebump worthy with another deep run finishing ninth (a few days later she would finish sixth in the €100k Triton High Roller in Rozvadov).

The winner was ‘Junglemandan’ (not the soft porn actor, Daniel Cates), banking $276,511 after negotiating a heads-up deal with the incredible ‘PayAndPlay’ (more on him later).

The event pulled in 131-runners, and 20 people made money.
