The tournament tookless than three hours from start to finish thanks to the blinds increasing every three minutes. Butler held her nerve with the blinds rapidly rising and became a worth POWERFEST side event champion.
Butler, who has been the number one Irish online poker player for as long as we can remember, found herself heads-up against "realdealbob". Both Butler and realdealbob guaranteed themselves more than $2,000 for reach heads-up, but the potential bounty payments were massive by this stage.
realdealbob's $2,070 main prize pool prize increased by $986 courtesy of this tournament having a PKO structure. Butler's $2,074 first-place prize soared by an additional $2,745, however.
Will We See Butler in the High Roller and Super High Roller Events?
Three huge POWERFEST events take place on April 13, tournaments that have buy-ins of $2,100, $5,200, and a whopping $25,500. There is a chance we will see Butler fighting it out in this trio of tournaments despite the fact she does not typically frequent these games.
This is because partypoker has launched some High Roller, High Roller Knockout, and Super High Roller satellites that start at only $0.01. These phase satellite allow players to buy in at any stage they wish and that their bankroll allows, opening the door for micro and low stakes players to have the opportunity to play for life-changing prizes.

It is a similar story for the $2,100 POWERFEST #08 - High Roller Knockout. You can find phase satellites weighing in at $2.20, $22, and $215 that award seats to the $2,100 buy-in event.
