There have been five POWERFEST festivals so far– and each one has been bigger than the last. This sixth edition features a staggering 330 events, including a record 12 Championship events, ten of which have guarantees of $1 million or more. partypoker is also hosting four great promotions during POWERFEST including the brand new Last Man Standing promotion rewarding players who cash on every Sunday of the series (full details below). The last POWERFEST in May had a $20 million guarantee but ended up accumulating over $27 million in prizepools.
With three different buy-in categories – and a ton of phased events and satellites, the September POWERFEST schedule is designed to appeal to US online poker players of all bankrolls:
In the low buy-in category, there are more than twenty $5.50 tournaments, all with guaranteed prize pools of at least $10,000 and several with guarantees of $20,000. The flagship Championship Event (POWERFEST #325) costs just $11 and comes with a whopping $50,000 guarantee – including a guaranteed $10,000 for the winner.
The high buy-in category features scores of No Limit Hold’em events with buy-ins of $109 and above, many with guaranteed prize pools of at least $100,000. The biggest event of all is the prestigious $25,500 Super High Roller which comes with a $3 million guarantee and is set to be one of the most exciting events of the year. Part of the last POWERFEST in May, the Super High Roller attracted 129 entries and generated a guarantee-busting $3,225,000 prize pool. “juanpardo99” took it down for $660,067 with partypoker Ambassadors Joao Simao and Sam Trickett both making the final table.
One brand new addition to this September’s series is the POWERFEST Ladies event. A huge number of women enjoy playing on partypoker so it seems likely that the $109 buy-in event on 24th September will smash the $10,000 guarantee.
