The Pokerfest is Back at partypoker!
partypoker's popular online poker series, the Pokerfest, is back on the room and runs until Nov. 2.
The second Pokerfest of the year features more than $2 million in guaranteed prize pools over the course of 76 events and is expected to generate several interesting overlays.
The Pokerfest brings to partypoker a large number of online tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $1 to $500.
Some of the marquee events of what looks like the last online Pokerfest of the year include a $300,000 no-limit hold'em Main Event on November 2, or the Pokerfest Event #36, a $200 buy-in no-limit hold'em freezeout tournament that features a sweet $250,000 guarantee.
Players can get a chance at any of the 76 events included the programme by paying the full buy-in or by going for a fraction of the cost thanks to the room's many satellites and mega-satellites. It is also possible to play for free by completing one of the Pokerfest missions taking place now at partypoker.
Partypoker first launched in 2001 and at one time was the leader in online poker. Partypoker is still one of the largest online poker sites in the world and their software has been downloaded more than 30 million times.
In March 2011, PartyGaming and sports betting giant bwin merged to create bwin.party Digital Entertainment, the world’s largest publically listed gaming company.
In September 2013, partypoker launched new social networking poker software that incorporates a number of features designed to attract new and casual players including player achievements and the ability to easily see what partypoker friends have recently been up to.
