On Sunday, March 20, an exciting month of action concluded on partypoker, with the final weekend of Powerfest.

Powerfest took place from Feb. 21 to March 20, featuring 98 action-packed events with over $5 million in guaranteed prize pools. The past week was the biggest of them all thanks to the High Roller portion of the series, headlined by 12 events with buy-ins ranging from $530-$5,200 and over $2.2 million in guaranteed prize pools.

Previous weeks featured lower buy-in events, including divisions dubbed Featherweight ($5.50-$11 buy-ins), Middleweight ($22-$55 buy-ins), and Heavyweight ($109-$215 buy-ins). Check out our recap here to learn more about the biggest winners in those events.

Highlights from High Roller Week

The highlight of the High Roller week was the Powerfest #96 — $500,000 Gtd — WEEK 4 MAIN EVENT with 928 entrants ponying up the $1,050 buy-in to generate a huge $928,000 prize pool. The tournament ended with a heads-up deal, and it was American poker refugee "DipesLIVES" officially coming out on top with a prize of $152,396. Argentina's Ivan "ivanvilchez8" Vilchez snagged second place for $136,212.

Also scoring big in the Main Event were Denmark's Rasmus "RasAAAAA" Agerskov Larsen (7th - $28,182) and the United Kingdom's Luke "GreenAsFelt" Haward (9th - $11,879).

Generating almost as big a prize pool was the last event on the schedule, Powerfest #98 — $500,000 Gtd, with 186 entrants buying in for $5,200 and creating a $930,000 prize pool. The event ended in a four-way deal with "Watnlos88" leading the way, banking $146,107.

Other players involved in the deal included "dafuqisdis" (2nd - $138,306), "SODA1RA" (3rd - $127,013), and "st_solo" (4th - $123,324).
