Powerfest #01 - High Roller Opener Day 2 still has two players battling each other heads-up: Sami Kelopuro and Barry Hutter have a pretty even stack so might have some way ahead of them still to see who will win that first-place prize of $107,718.
In the meantime, Powerfest #03 - High Roller has reached the final table which features partypoker Ambassador Kristen Bicknell. Christoph Vogelsang holds the chip lead with Michael Addamo, Alex Foxen, David Peters, Kevin MacDonald, and Joakim Andersson joining them on the final table.
Make sure to check back tomorrow to see who has taken down those two events and any other Powerfest tournaments, right here on PokerNews. But for now, goodnight and see you next week!
