Darren Elias added the POWERFEST #15 High Roller title to his ever-growing list of poker-related victories in the early hours of April 19. This latest triumph came with almost $135,000 in prize money!
The tournament drew in 114 players who each paid $5,200 for the chance to become the latest POWERFEST High Roller champion. Only 20 of those starters won a slice of the $570,000 prize pool, Shawn Daniels falling in 21st place and bursting the money bubble.
Daniels’ exit locked up at least $10,000 for the surviving players. Teun Mulder, Sosia Jiang, Nick Petrangelo, Alex Foxen, Artur Martirosian, and Stephen O’Dwyer were among those who cashed. Swedish online poker legend Niklas Astedt busted in eight for $16,947 and set the official final table.
Our very own Joni Jouhkimainen was the final table’s first casualty. The Finnish Team partypoker star walked away with $20,384 for his seventh-place finish.
Linus Loeliger and high-stakes guru Timothy Adams joined Jouhkimainen on the rail, doing so with prizes worth $25,199 and $32,354 respectively. Fourth place and $43,964 went to Joakim Andersson, before Pascal Hartmann busted in third place and collected $64,143.
Hartmann’s demise left Darren Elias and Marius Gierse heads-up for the title and the tournament’s six-figure top prize. Elias, a four-time World Poker Tour champion, defeated his Austrian opponents and reeled in the $134,480 top prize. Gierse, while disappointed not to win, cannot be too unhappy with his $91,515 consolation prize.
