“KirbyPop” captured a POWERFEST title on April 21 when they topped a 198-strong field in the $530 POWERFEST #22 Turbo Knockout tournament.
The tournament only took 4.5 hours from start to finish thanks to the seven-minute blind structure. KirbyPop was the last player standing when the dust settled as just before 23:40 BEST.
Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard navigated his way to a 29th place finish. Leonard collected $605 from the main prize pool, but did not lock up any bounty payments.
Someone who did secure some bounties was “Brachiosaurus” who was the six-handed final table’s first casualty. They scooped $2,012 for their sixth-place finish plus an additional $1,437 worth of bounties.
“Noname69” and “Cleaner88” followed the dinosaur-named player to the sidelines, doing so with total prizes that weighed in at $4,120 and $4,830 respectively.
Third place and $7,413 went to “hspgjtsr” whose elimination left KirbyPop and “RGx17” heads-up for the title. Both the heads-up players locked in more than $7,900 from the main prize pool but the bounty payments were now very large.
KirbyPop defeated RGx17 in the one-on-one section of this event, meaning their main prize pool prize swelled by a cool $12,394 thanks to the PKO element. The runner-up walked away with an additional $4,285 worth of scalps.
POWERFEST #22 – Turbo Knockout Final Table Results
Gonzalez Gallops Away With High Roller Omaha Title
While not one of the numbered POWERFEST events, the $2,100 High Roller Omaha tournament attracted its fair share of elite poker players. A compact field of 49 entrants included Dan Shak, Gavin Cochrane, Niklas Astedt, and Anton Suarez; and those are just a small selection who did not finish in the top nine positions where the $100,000 was paid out.
Jonathan Skovsen and our Finnish star Joni Jouhkimainen were the first two players to cash, although both narrowly missed out on a final table spot. Jouhkimainen’s fellow Finn, Anssi Kinttala finished in seventh before Bujtas Laszlo dusted off his stack in sixth place.
Epsen Myrmo had to make do with the $6,660 fifth place prize money, while Bulgarian pro Boris Angelov fell in fourth and won $8,995, the last prize not worth five figures.
Third-place and $12,794 went to Darren Presley, which set up an enticing heads-up clash between Fabrizio Gonzalez and Simon Lofberg. Gonzalez is better known for his no-limit hold’em prowess but showed the world he is equally adept with four hole cards. Gonzalez busted Lofberg in second, leaving the Swede to console himself with $19,894, leaving Gonzalez to secure the $32,392 top prize.
