The weekend's biggest prize pool in online MTT action at Party Poker saw 102 entrants kick in the $5,200 buy-in for Powerfest #26-H, creating $510,000 in prize money.

That amount squeaked past the $500K guarantee, with the lion's share of $110,819 going to 'aLiNeNok1617' for topping the field. He and runner-up 'PhileasFogg' ($103,380) chopped their shares of the prize money when they were the last two players standing, leaving just a few grand to play for.

There was no stopping soleeJ on this Sunday, as the Mexico-based player found himself with a huge chip lead with six players remaining. He never looked back from then on, and can now defend his new title next Sunday in the 12th Anniversary Sunday Million that features a guaranteed $10 million prize pool and $1 million to the winner.
