One of the biggest events on the partypoker POWERFEST schedule played out last night: Event #123 Super High Roller Championship Event: $25,500 No Limit Hold’em and one of poker’s brightest minds shined brightest against tough competition.

Steve ‘eet_smakelijk’ O’Dwyer earned an online career-best $896,610 for the win, defeating Orpen ‘orpenkk’ Kisacikoglu heads-up ($643,500). O’Dwyer’s victory came three days after he won a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker event for what was then a career-best $227,000.

Other notables who made the final table include Michael ‘mczhang’ Zhang, who has been on a tear of late. He added $468,000 to his ever-growing bankroll, while legendary PocketFiver Jon “sordykrd” Van Fleet (aka “apestyles”) would also make the final table, busting in fifth for $234,000.

‘nipa3p3’ finished in sixth for $147,420, bringing his total online earnings up to $3.89 million. Rounding off the finale was partypoker ambassador Jason Koon, who earned an eighth-place finish for $117,000.

But what else happened on Thursday night?

Well, ‘Tightguy66′ was very busy indeed. He made an incredible three final tables:

  • 4th in Event #123 High Roller: $530 No Limit Hold’em Progressive Knock-out ($7,078.50 + $967)
  • 5th in Event #125 High Roller: $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max ($12,060)
  • 4th in Event #125 High: $109 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max ($1,232.50)

 

We also saw ‘GiGioDoNNa99′ make multiple finales. He or she finished sixth in Event #123 High Roller: $530 No Limit Hold’em Progressive Knock-out for $3,689.40 (+ $2,649), and finished fourth in Event #123 High: $109 No Limit Hold’em Progressive Knock-out for $3,226.72 (+ $2,232).

‘NoOnionsBlud’ has been making final tables consistently throughout this POWERFEST, and he added two more last night. First off he locked up a fourth-place cash in Event #121 High: $215 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max for $8,179.60, and followed that up with a sixth-place finish in Event #125 High Roller: $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max for $8,040.

We’ve got to give a shout-out to ‘Paul_Folders’ too. He won a title and $23,500 on Wednesday, and took down another one on Thursday, winning Event #126 High Roller: $530 No Limit Hold’em Fast Six-Max Progressive Knock-out for a bankroll-boosting $12,157.59, plus $10,390 in bounties.

Other winners on the day in High and High Roller tier events include Eder ‘KingJamesMVP’ Campana, ‘TheRepoMan86’, ‘MisterN411’, ‘midgedate’, ‘goran445’, ‘Iveybluffallin’, ‘mudlo’, ‘Dabledore’, and ‘Nepteidon’.
