The last big saturday has crowned its victor, and it is “Drogbaa” who can call himself a PartyPoker champion for the next seven days. The Big Saturday saw 128 players register, which left an overlay of nearly $4,300, adding more value to an already great tournament.

Twenty-three of 128 starters saw a return on their investment, so spare a moment of reflection for the 24th-place finisher “yagrebulave” who was the unfortunate soul who burst the all-important money bubble. With the bursting of the bubble, surviving players locked in at least $534.19 for their efforts.

By the time the nine-man final table was set, the minimum money was $825.13, with all but two players making four-figure sums.

“bartholin8” saw their time at the final table limited as they retired in ninth. Eighth place and the final triple-digit score, $974.37 to be exact, went to “derlangegrinderJR.” Everyone now saw over $1,100 in their account.

“RinxFrinkX” broke in seventh for $1,128 before “For_thon” was caught without the good and had to settle for the sixth-place prize of $1,316. Fifth place and $1,620 went to “SkytPoker” with “Exotic Jose” falling by the wayside in fourth, a good finish for $2,148.

The three-handed game ended and the tournament moved into the exciting heads-up stage when “olespengefabrik” runs out of steam in third. Although disappointed not to go all the way, the third can’t be too disappointed to have turned $109 into $2,997.

Pitted heads-up “Leonel_pepsi” against “Drogabaa.” There was more than $2,100 difference between first and second place money, but neither of the bottom two players was interested in making a deal. Instead, they wrapped up Big Saturday as planned.

After an intense head-to-head battle, Drogbaa clinched the title and the top prize of $6,491, leaving Leonel_pepsi at the consolation prize of $4,322.
