partypoker cannot stay out of the headlines of late. The online poker giant announced a record-breaking tournament with a $20 million guarantee earlier this week and has today revealed the first Powerfest series of the new year will feature $15 million worth of guarantees.
The first Powerfest of 2018 takes place at partypoker from Jan. 21-Feb. 4 and features 147 tournaments.

Previous editions of Powerfest have been predominately no-limit hold’em tournaments; this changes for this latest series., Fixed-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, pot-limit Omaha Hi/Lo, Seven-Card Stud and various progressive knockout tournaments are scheduled along with a trio of Powerfest Ladies events on Feb. 4 with buy-ins of $2.20, $22 and $215.
