Patrick "Patrick Leonard" Leonard had a great weekend after winning PartyPoker's $150,000 guaranteed Sunday Party. He won two high-stakes events.
The poker player beat 101 opponents in the April 16 Super $320 and won $7,983, which comprised bounties. He reached the top 15 position in the $109 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed Sunday Party while clinching the Super $320 victory.
The Sunday Party attracted 1,354 entrants who set an overlay of almost $15,000 on its $150,000 guarantee. Yet, the extra value didn't matter to any of the players.
