“nipa3p3” was the unfortunate soul to burst the money bubble, which paved the way for Team partypoker’s Louise “lou045” Butler to min-cash for $10,200. The least any of the eight final table members could win was $16,575, the sum “WWWpartyCOM” collected.

“girafganger” fell in seventh-place and Conor “ADRIEN_BRODY” Beresford was another notable finalist; Beresford busted in fifth-place.

“aLiNeNok1617” and “PhileasFogg” locked horns heads-up for the title, but not before striking a deal that locked up a six-figure score for each of them. The former eventually secured the title to win his or her first POWERFEST event.
