The Sunday High Roller Terminator saw both men running deep in the PKO format, Nomura’s rake-free Bounty win covering his buy-in and an extra $1150 in his pocket for his 13th place finish.

Romanello just missed out on the final table, 10th spot and a decent cash for the Welshman despite failing to headhunt along the way.

The $100k guarantee saw 107 runners, and the victory went to Brachiosaurus, winning almost $28k as he added $17,907 in Bounty payments to his first place regular prizemoney.

The $50k GTD Sunday High Roller Deepstack witnessed 54 players forking out the $1050 buy-in, and this time Nomura’s 13th place was an unlucky one outside the money.

Mr Brightside walked off with the top prize of $18,900 after defeating NILAos heads-up, the runner-up having to content himself with a $12,690 Sunday payday.

The $100k GTD Sunday High Roller Gladiator saw a third cash for Mr Brightside, but Team partypoker pro Romanello couldn’t quite make the money in the 58-player field.

A whopping $43k+ was CalmDownMan’s reward for victory, some $28,940 coming from bounties accrued along the way. No sign of Renato Nomura this time, but if you want to know his top tips for the PKO format then check out this interview.

Heading down the stakes a bit and there was the $320 buy-in version of the $150k guaranteed Sunday High Roller Gladiator, more than 8 hours required to separate the 488 entries.

HumbleAsPuck and Paganini both secured five-figure paydays in this one, the heads-up battle going the violinist fan’s way and almost $10k in bounties added to $10.8k from the regular prizefund.

Last but not least we were treated to a ten-hour slugfest in the $215 buy-in Sunday Deepstack, $59k up for grabs after 295 players signed on the dotted line.

Cassius_Clay fought his way to 3rd spot and $5959, while Paqulito had to settle for 2nd and $8496, the victory going to IwillTr1pleU who was rewarded with $11, 741 to go with the Gladiator title.

We’ll be back next Monday with another roundup of the biggest MTT action on partypoker, but in the meantime you can join in the potentially very lucrative fun and games here.
