Sam Trickett scored a huge POWERFEST win this week, taking down the PLO 6-Max Super High Roller for a $104,000 cash, with Joni JJouhki Jouhkimainen and Mikita fish2013 Badziakouski also in the money for Team partypoker as the game heads online for the foreseeable future…

In fact, Badziakouski bagged almost twice as much as Trickett without even making the podium in the $2million GTD 8-Max NLHE which we’ll get to in a minute, but first up a look at the Trickett victory.

The PLO event attracted 52 entries at $5200 apiece, meaning a huge chunk of money on the line above the $150k guarantee, with most of partypoker’s big name recs in the running.

Jouhkimainen had already landed a first place and $92,000 in a previous PLO 6-max and another deep run this week saw him pocket $23,400 for 4th place, ahead of BaBaDeBaBa and DONKEY666.

When idefix fell in 3rd for a $33,800 payday, it left Trickett to fight off the challenge of sukamibosak, which he did effectively for the title and $104,000.

Final results

1 Sam 'SamTrickett' Trickett $104,000
2 sukamibosak $66,545
3 idefix $33,800
4 Joni 'JJouhk'i Jouhkimainen $23,400
5 DONKEY6666 $18,200
6 BaBaDeBaBa $14,054

There was also the $2million GTD, $25,500 buy-in 8-max NLHE Super High Roller on the schedule, and when 90 entries appeared it meant an extra $¼million in the kitty.

Isaac 'Ike_Haxton' Haxton took more than $73k of that $2.25million prizefund for his 10th place run, while Mikita 'fish2013' Badziakouski was the only other identifiable player to make the money.

The Belarus highstakes crusher had his sights set on the  almost $600k top prize, but fell just short – the partypoker pro’s 4th place finish still worth a whopping $202,500.

Supernutz took $292,500 for 3rd place and when MeisterTTT fell in 2nd for $416,500 it meant the title and $596,250 were going home with Piace1992.

Final results

1 Piace1992 $596,250
2 MeisterTTT $416,250
3 SuperNutz $292,500
4 Mikita “fish2013” Badziakouski $202,500
6 Triple Sexy $118,125
7 CaptainJack95 $95,625
