There have been some superb POWERFEST results over the past number of days, although the triumph by Team partypoker’s Joni Jouhkimainen is one that sticks out from the group. Our flying Finn transformed a $5,200 buy-in into an unbelievable $92,000 by handling the world’s best PLO players.
POWERFEST #42-SHR: $100K Gtd PLO 6-Max
A field of 46 of the world’s best PLO players bought into the $100K Gtd 6-Max Super High Roller event. This developed a $230,000 reward pool, greater than two times the dimension of the promoted guarantee.
Only the top six finishers received a prize, so spare a thought for seventh-place finisher “Mr.Keto”. His exit secured at least $12,432 for the six surviving players.
“sukamibosak” busted in sixth and banked $12,432. “KamelAAsAA” joined him on the rail with the $16,100 fifth-place prize.
Fourth-place and $20,700 went to “MUNJOSHuHa” before “DR.Summer69” exited in third-place for $29,900.
This set up a heads-up clash between Joni “Jjouhk” Jouhkimainen and “Robbery9999”. The result was never in doubt and our hero brushed aside his final opponent to bank $92,000.Second-place was worth an impressive $58,867, a great prize for 10-hours at the tables.

Remember “Robbery9999” who was the runner-up in the event Jouhkimainen won? Well, he finished sixth in this event for more than $19,500 with bounties included.
“BuddyRW” and “PogRipper” busted out and scooped more than $14,000 and $23,000 respectively.
