A field of 46 players smashed the $100,000 guarantee for Event #42-SHR, and it was partypoker's Joni Jouhkimainen who eventually came out on top.
The field contained several familiar names from earlier in the festival, including "PayAndPlay" and "NOLIMITHOLDEM" but it was the Finnish player who walked away with $92,000 in prize money and the POWERFEST title.

The biggest payout of the day came in Event #42-SHR as "iRunStims" walked away with a cool $123,725 after defeating "aaabbb" heads-up. They had to settle for $88,375, with the familiar name of "kgroqigmqtbmqom" coming in third, securing a $63,000 haul to go with the $60,000 they earned yesterday for a runner-up finish in Event #35-SHR, and the title they won in Event #8-HR earlier in the week.

Finally, it was a day to remember for partypoker's Matthew Staples who tied his second biggest online score with a runner-up place in Event #44-H. After an apparent deal heads-up with "Coup_de_grace", Staples would have to settle for second but was no doubt thrilled by his performance.
Joao Simao narrowly missed out on the final table, finishing 12th for around $3,200 in combined cashes.
