$40 Million Guaranteed partypoker POWERFEST Announced
Keep your diaries free from tasks from May 6-20, 2018 because those are the dates the partypoker’s biggest-ever POWERFEST series takes place.
The second POWERFEST of 2018 sees a total of 366 events scheduled, including 17 Championship tournaments and 13 events that have guaranteed prize pools of at least $1 million.
As with previous editions of POWERFEST, events will be divided up into different buy-in levels known as Micro, Low, Medium, High and High Rollers. Buy-ins will range from $1.10 up to $5,200, although UK & Ireland PokerNews would not be surprised in the least if partypoker ran some Super High Rollers with even larger buy-ins.
Although the full schedule of 366 events is yet to be published on the partypoker website, Patrick Leonard, the partypoker ambassador, hinted there will be more variety to the formats and structures of this POWERFEST’s schedule. UK & Ireland PokerNews has been informed that tickets won via the new Power Series Mega Sats can be used for POWERFEST events, however, tickets won in these satellites have a seven-day expiry.
“I’ve been more heavily involved in this POWERFEST scheduling than ever before. There is a lot of consistent logic throughout giving the most varied, exciting and fun POWERFEST schedule since partypoker’s resurrection a few years ago. There are more 6-Max events, more PLO, more high rollers but also buy-ins for all bankrolls and most importantly lots of chances of glory. I don’t think I’ll take a day off over the two weeks.”
This latest edition of POWERFEST has $5 million more in guaranteed prize pools than the previous biggest series, which took place in Sept. 2017. Despite increasing the number of events, partypoker has managed to keep the average guarantee on each tournament to more than $100,000. This was also the case when POWERFEST last run in Jan. 2018 when $15 million was guaranteed across 147 events.
