With a packed 14 event schedule, a thrilling Thursday saw the South Americans making a big move across the board, with the $500k guaranteed 8-max HR also featuring two Brazilians at the final table.

Everyone who made it that far secured four-figure scores, the rake-free bounty element on the PKO tournaments a welcome boost to eventual payouts, and in 4th spot we saw a familiar face – or name at least.

Brazil’s n1ceFTW fell just short of grabbing a second KO Series title, but walked off with $28,793, while Bulgaria’s savageplenty managed to break up the South American dominance with a 3rd place finish and close to $40k payday.

Heads-up and the bounties were massive, another Brazilian StillTrying adding $26k to his $41k split of the top two places, and mbtremendo topping the $100k mark with a massive $58,882 in bounties for the win!

In the $1050 buy-in High Roller, the $200k guarantee had a little extra added from the 217 runners – and this time Brazil walked off with the title.

Andras probirs Nemeth was among those running deep, as were Bosnia’s MrMaster98 – who landed a KO Series title just yesterday – and Russia’s ever-present Ilushan.

When it came down to the wire, however, it was Alexandre PokeyB_RedBaron Mantovani from Brazil who snared the title – one step up from his excellent runner-up finish at the weekend. Last night’s big win added over $43k to his $80k+ Sunday scoop.

‘Down’ at the $530 buy-in level, however, the Europeans fought back and relegated the Brazilian quartet to the lower placings, partypoker Team Pro Renato Nomura among them – finishing 13th, one spot behind Roman SanityWaterline Romanovsky.

Germany’s ACHSO8000 took the victory, the ten-hour battle worth more than $40k as he saw off Finland’s Jarildur1 heads-up for the title.

So, the weekend is almost upon us and the partypoker crew are preparing for a massive $7million in guarantees, the Championship events finale certain to bring out the big guns and numbers in force.
