Girafganger7 helped himself to a $16,387 prize by winning the partypoker High Roller Gladiator: $50K Gtd, followed that up with a runner-up finish in the partypoker Powerfest 06-H: $100K Gtd PKO Fast 8-Max for $9,923 and rounded things off with a $59,925 score by being the fourth-place finisher in the Powerfest 03-SHR: $500K Gtd 8-Max event.
