It's only the start of this week and newly introduced first member of partypoker's Team Online Matt Staples is already taking down his opponents in "The Gladiator", the poker company's latest tourney in their PKO Power series.

The $320 compared to the $55 in the gtd prizepool department is not at all special IMO. I am not saying that it should be five or six times as much but it should definitely be more than just twice as much. Dunno, just my two cents. Party is not famous about their higher buyin tourneys, maybe this is why.

It's nice to see that one of their online team has done well in this tournament and it bodes well for the others to do the same. I bet it relives some of the pressure on the individual if they do well and prove that they deserve a place on the team

I cant see why this is news actually, unless there is something wrong with the numbers. He won 2253 USD for a 320 buy in? And that is an accomplishment somehow? You can win more than that with only one figure buy in , in a tournament And what if it was just his first day as party poker online pro...
the achievements are certainly not very remarkable ... there are quite a lot of such achievements .... the gain is of course big but the entrance fee is also not small .... so it seems to me that this is an ordinary gain .... and this should not be singled out as something extraordinary

This new gladiator game seems just like the KO tournaments but i can not say for sure. It is important that they do not have rake and the prizes are very good. Matt Staples has a good profit on his first day of online poker. He will have time to perform better. He's a good player.

yes I personally too think like some people say in this thread that it is not very super results and not information you can say that is news. it is just results and you can write about all times he finish in money, but if we talk about result then yes of course good situation to make 8x to your buyin
