Powerfest Concludes with $6m+ in Prizes, Polk Streams $271k Win

Doug Polk wins partypoker event

To say it was a busy weekend on partypoker would be an understatement.

There were a total of four different tournaments offering prize pools of $1m or more and Youtube sensation Doug Polk took down one of them for $271,272.

Polk, who plays on partypoker as gab-tilt99, bought in directly to the final phase of Powerfest 294 for $5,200.

Powerfest 294 had a unique format that allowed players to qualify in earlier stages for far less but still get a crack at the $1m+ prize pool.

In the end Polk outlasted all 274 entries in the final stage to win $271k. It's one of the biggest scores ever streamed and you can check it out below. Here’s a look at the final-table payouts for the tournament.

Four Main Events Pay Off Big in Final Powerfest Weekend

cash money

Online player starsman1960 outlasted 5,132 to win the $11 Main Event for $6,731 after a two-chop. Not a bad return on an $11 investment.

Meanwhile long-time online grinder joaofera beat 3,309 to take down the $50 buy-in Main Event for $25,795.

The $215 Main Event actually fell slightly short of the guaranteed prize pool of $1m, which meant a slight overlay for players.

partypoker has provided several overlays over the span of Powerfest, making it a fantastic choice for players looking for a little extra value.

In the end online pro sordykrd took advantage of the overlay by outlasting all 4,872 entries to win $153k

Finally Casio “Cassiopak18” Kiles closed out the Powerfest Main Events by beating a 1,590-entry field to win the $1,050 buy-in Main Event for $268,710.
