You heard of the famous story where Jack “Treetop” Straus found himself down to a single chip only to go on and win the World Series of Poker Main Event, coining the phrase “a chip and a chair”?

We almost had a similar result on POWERFEST Day 8 with Team Online’s Travis “DramatcDegen” Darroch who was down to 1.5 big blinds at the final table of the POWERFEST #41-H: $250K Gtd Fast PKO only to finish second for more than $34,000.

Several other members of Team partypoker had great days on August 4th, including Josip Simunic and Joao Simao, the latter taking down the Powerfest #40-HR: $100K Gtd Deep Turbo for more than $22,000.

A staggering $5,241,835 was paid out on POWERFEST Day 8, a sum that would not have been possible without your incredible support, so thank you! Let’s check out the biggest results of Day 8.
