Using the supersymmetric method of random matrix theory within the Heidelberg approach framework we provide statistical description of stationary intensity sampled in locations inside an open wave-chaotic cavity, assuming that the time-reversal invariance inside the cavity is fully broken. In particular, we show that when incoming waves are fed via a finite number $M$ of open channels the probability density ${\cal P}(I)$ for the single-point intensity $I$ decays as a power law for large intensities: ${\cal P}(I)\sim I^{-(M+2)}$, provided there is no internal losses. This behaviour is in marked difference with the Rayleigh law ${\cal P}(I)\sim \exp(-I/\overline{I})$ which turns out to be valid only in the limit $M\to \infty$. We also find the joint probability density of intensities $I_1, \ldots, I_L$ in $L>1$ observation points, and then extract the corresponding statistics for the maximal intensity in the observation pattern. For $L\to \infty$ the resulting limiting extreme value statistics (EVS) turns out to be different from the classical EVS distributions.
