partypokers Team Pro and Team Online members put in a very good showing in yesterdays highstakes Sunday grind – Jeff Gross running deep a couple of times and Roberto Romanello scooping a big win!

By: Andrew Burnett

Let’s kick things off with the WelshWizard, Roberto Romanello the most famous poker player ever to come out of Wales and noted for crushing both live and online poker…

Yesterday he was running deep in the Sunday High Roller Predator, a $1050 buy-in, $75k GTD PKO tournament that drew 66 entries – a fast and furious four-hour affair for those at the final table.

The partypoker Team pro, a proud father of baby twins around which his poker career now revolves, added a sweet $12,821 in Bounty payments to the share of the top two spots with heads-up opponent Serenity25, the Welsh Wizard taking down the win.

Romanello had another deep run in the $150k GTD Sunday High Roller Gladiator, finishing outside the paid places in the $2100 buy-in, 79-runner tournament but recouping a bit of cash with his head-hunting payments.

On the reverse side of the cash this time was Team Online’s Jeff Gross, unable to secure any of the rake-free bounties but finishing in the money with a 10th place finish worth $3,472.

Gross recently joined the partypoker Team Online crew of poker streamers, the 32-year old Michigan man boasting one of the biggest and most faithful poker followings on TwitchTV…

There was more success in store for Gross in the $100k GTD Sunday High Roller Terminator, 102 entries at $1050 apiece chasing the big money.

Again Gross failed to trouble the Bounty payouts, but despite that he secured an excellent 6th place and $2,741, RocknCall scooping the victory and over $24k.

A little further down in stakes, the $320 Sunday Gladiator drew an impressive 492 entries, although this time the partypoker crew themselves didn’t make it to the latter stages.

Now, if you’re thinking this week that you don’t recognise many of the names, remember that this past week has seen the partypoker Alias Race kicking off – name changes for prizes the basic premise of the promo.

After nine hours of play it was NBdown who emerged victorious, adding a whopping $14,820 in bounty money to the almost $11k split for first and second, Orgrim taking the runner-up spot.

Last but certainly not least, let’s take a look at one of the non-PKO tournaments, the ever-popular Sunday High Roller Deepstack, 84 players paying $1050 buy-ins, the prizepool therefore exceeding the $75k guarantee.

With the top three places looking at five-figure payouts, and twelve places paid in all, competition was fierce – and onehundredeyez may well be the same onehundredeyes who is a regular at the deep end on partypoker’s highstakes grind.

His 5th spot finish was worth $5880, but it was feelsolver who took the win and the $22,260 top prize after seeing off PronzOfDTO.

So, a lot of new names and faces, and plenty of partypoker involvement in their own tournaments to go with it. We’ll be back next Monday with our usual round-up of the biggest winners online, so be sure to check back in!
