Some 192 players entered the special year-ending partypoker event, the $5200 buy-in meaning the guarantee was pretty much secured give or take a few $$ - and 24 players would find themselves in the money, a min cash of $13,300 guaranteeing a Happy New Year for two dozen of the hopefuls.

The final table saw the money rise sharply, ‘luckywhale_nuts’ securing $27,500 for his deep run after high-stakes regular ‘RosenheimCops’ had bubbled in 9th for an otherwise excellent $20k exactly.

With Team partypoker’s Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao already on the rails in 13th spot, it would be a lesser-known light walking off with close to $200k, and when they reached heads-up it looked like ‘Iluvia71’ might do a remarkable double.

Earlier he, or she, had netted $41,799 after seeing off Bulgaria’s ‘NoSixFive’ to take the $200k GTD Christmas freeze High Roller title, but after agreeing a close to 50/50 deal it was TIMEXCNT who would emerge victorious this time.

The Big Game Freezeout gets another outing in January, with $109 satellites already up-and-running, although you can ladder your way up to the big seat from as little as $1.10 – the weekly finals seeing five $5200 seats added to the prizepool.
