PokerStars rival PartyPoker has published numbers from its recently concluded Powerfest series, which it claims has been the most successful and largest it has held to date.
Across the course of the 22-day series, more than $69 million in prize money was awarded over 669 events, with 20 Championship Event winners crowned and 21 players banking combined six-figure scores.
Overall Powerfest drew a combined 946,000 entrants.
Brazil cemented its place at the top of the country standings to finish the series with 105 wins to the U.K.’s 92, with Russia claiming bronze on 80 victories.
At 604, the UK made the most final table appearances over Brazil’s 572 showings, narrowly pipping Russia on 570.
The U.K.’s ‘Paul_Folders’ stands alone as the only player with a quintet of wins to their name, yielding a handsome $241,645.18 for a remarkable showing.
Elsewhere, high roller specialist Steve O’Dwyer added another title to his glittering CV as he took down the $3 million GTD Super High Roller for $896,610 – making him comfortably the series’ biggest winner.
Jason Koon of Team partypoker played his way to an eighth-place finish in the same event, for a $117,000 score.
On the final day of the festival, a collective 34,379 players converged on the site to make it the biggest day in recent history.
Attentions now turn to November’s ground-breaking $20 million GTD MILLIONS Online, officially the single largest online tournament in online poker history.
