The $215 buy-in $30,000 guaranteed The Big Saturday shuffled and dealt at 18:05 GMT on February 4th. A little over eight hours later, the 160-strong field had been reduced to a single player, Brapan30.

When the money bubble burst “Pillepalle248” eliminated in 32nd place. Her exit secured a minimum of $423.91 for the surviving players. These survivors crashed one by one until only nine PartyPoker players were left in the hunt for the $6,158 grand prize. $786.21 was the minimum the finalists took home, with seven of the last nine filling their bankrolls with four-figure prizes.

“Way2Cold2Fold” found themselves chipless early in the final table action, resulting in a ninth place finish. “billyboyspuff” was the next player on the way to the exits, her eighth place finish bringing $915 reasons to be happy with her performance.

With only seven players left, each was guaranteed over $1,000 for their efforts. The last seven became six with the elimination of “AAzulay” ($1,075) and then five if “antiZZZ” ($1,282) crashed on the track.

Fourth place and $1,556 went to “watch out77” Before “Mardaturan” ($2,073) and “Benibennn” ($3,027) saw their tournament come to a premature end, leaving Brapan30 heads-up against them “Alberto Balsam.”

The heads-up duo decided the tournament without discussing a deal, despite a $1,830 prize difference. The lack of an agreement meant that Brapan30 got their hands on $6,158 when they emerged unscathed from the one-on-one match, allowing AlbertoBalsalm to collect the second prize of $4,328.

Matt Staples narrowly misses the Grand

The $1,050 Grand On February 5th, 74 players took part, including two members of Team PartyPoker: Jaime Staples And Matt Staples. Both Staples brothers boxed in The Grand, and one of them almost walked away with top honors.

Thirteen places were paid, and Jaime Staples placed 13th. Then the final table was set Ed Campana, Tom Halland Finland’s Tom Brook were relieved of their chips. Tournaments with a buy-in of $1,050 attract the best players in the world, but The Grand’s final table was something different and wouldn’t have looked out of place in an event with a buy-in ten times the size.

Artur Martirosyan ($2,890) finished ninth to get out of slightly less shark-infested waters. Gavin Cochrane ($3,184) and Swedish superstar Nicholas Astedt ($3,483) joined Martirosian as a viewer shortly after his death.

Then came the exits from Joshua McCully ($4,011) and Jonathan Kay ($4,912). Eliot Hudonwho recently won the WPT World Championship at The Wynn Las Vegas for $4,136,000placed fourth in The Grand for $6,382).

Bulgaria Nikolai Dimitrov ($8,684) busted in third place, leaving Matt Staples heads-up against the Czech grinder Michael Sklenicka.
