$25 500 Super High Roller completed at Powerfest
The other day, the $25 500 Super High Roller at PartyPoker took place as part of the Powerfest series. Each participant that paid the buy-in wanted to become a champion. Only one player managed to do that: Sven Andersson from Sweden.
In total, the event collected 64 entries, and 11 poker players reached the second game day. Matthias Eibinger, João Vieira, and Sami Kelopuro got in the money but did not make it to the final table.
Poker fans could watch the tournament live on the PartyPoker Twitch channel. Luke Giles and Jonathan Saks Skovsen moved all-in holding pocket pairs and both lost to Andras Nemeth's AK.
When there were three people left in the game, Sven had 50% of all the chips in his stack. The Swede felt confident and knocked players out of the tournament one by one.
In the heads-up, he was opposed by Markus Leikkonen: the fight lasted 30 minutes only. In the last hand of the event, Markus decided to bluff but it was an unsuccessful move.
On a 10-9-K-A-5 board, Markus moved all-in with 7-7 on the river and was called by Sven who had Q-K. As a result, Andersson became the tournament winner, pocketing $480 000.
