partypoker Sunday HighStakes Grind Sees Some New Faces In The Money

It proved to be a Sunday full of upsets on the partypoker highstakes grind, with the biggest names in the game missing from the winners podium, clearing the way for some slightly lesser lights to crash the party…

Not that the winner’s circles were awash with unknowns, far from it, with partypoker’s Hristivoje ALLinPav Pavlovic continuing his fine recent form and Ireland’s Dara O’Kearney popping up for a massive cash.

The anonymous grinders, however, were to the fore – as seen in the $5200 partypoker Big Game, the $1million guarantee attracting 194 entries and Ukrainian ucantrybut taking the massive top prize of $203,900 ahead of slowdoke.

The Irishman had to settle for 2nd and $148,000 – but the huge scoop didn’t even register on his busy Twitter feed! Andras probirs Nemeth ran deep, but ultimately 11th spot will be a disappointment for the Hungarian crusher.

Moving down the stakes ten-fold, we saw 183 runners in the $100k GTD Sunday High Roller Grind, and again the biggest name – Roman SanityWaterline Romanovsky – couldn’t finish off the job, although 7th place and $3500 isn’t to be sneezed at of course.

Once again the top prize was heading to Eastern Europe, with Belarus reg MaksAngeL1 seeing off his rivals to lift the $19,332 payout

Double the stakes and more than double the prizemoney, the Sunday High Roller Deepstack saw 192 entries chasing the guaranteed $200k prizepool in the $1050 buy-in event.

Again there were no huge names to the fore as the 10th hour of play arrived, Canada’s KryptoKing the only gatecrasher in an otherwise all-European final table.

Emerging victorious was Netherlands pro SHHHHHHHHHH (you count them then!) a $44k+ payday ahead of HungarysHero who had to settle for second best this time and a very healthy $31,800.

At the $215 buy-in level, we had the $125k GTD Sunday Deepstack, 712 runners adding a fair bit extra to that prizefund.

There was a more global feel to the deep end of this one, with a couple of Brazilians and Canadian highstakes reg Mike_420 among them, but once again the biggest chunk of the cash went to the Europeans.

Macedonia’s WhoDatt took 3rd and just over $12k, while Albania’s Labriout couldn’t quite make it to the top spot, losing out heads-up to bUUbUUbOOm who took the $25,418 winner’s payout.

All that was left was the $100k Sunday High Roller Clasico, with 192 runners coughing up the $530 buy-in – including partypoker’s TwitchTV streaming sensation and Team Online member Hristivoje ALLinPav Pavlovic who has been a bit of a tear recently…

When five Canadians fell like dominoes, we had a final table with the UK well-represented, as well as Malta, Sweden, Germany, Brazil and Australia.

Pavlovic fought hard, but eventually fell in 3rd spot, and $11,600 cash that will help his stats for sure – and this left HeavenlyFather and n1ceFTW to duke it out for the win.

When the Brazilian emerged unscathed from the headsup duel, he had a sweet $22,130 cash to celebrate, his UK adversary none too displeased with a $15,900.

That rounds off the partypoker highstakes Sunday grind for another week, but be sure to check back next week to see if the team partypoker crew can fight their way back onto the winner’s rostrum!
