partypoker Announces $20,000,000 Powerfest


Powerfest is coming back and partypoker is boasting $20,000,000 in guarantees across 301 events. The largest online poker series partypoker has ever run.

The series will run from May 7 through May 21 with buy-ins ranging from $5.50 all the way up to a massive $25,500 Super High Roller.

Four different editions of the “Title Fight” will headline as Main Events with combined guarantees of $2,150,000. In total, eight different events carry a prize pool with a million dollars or more up for grabs.

Here are some of the highlight events of the series:

A nice touch by partypoker will see all fees from the $25,500 Super High Roller donated to charity. The champion of the event will get to choose the charity and if the event attracts more than 100 entrants, partypoker will add $50,000 to the donation.

“We decided to go for it this time and increase the total guaranteed prize pool for the upcoming Powerfest to over $20 million. There are some fantastic new headline events in the series, including three $1m guaranteed editions of the Title Fight, a $2m charity event and eight phased tournaments covering a range of buy-ins. I’m confident that the players will love the variety of events on offer and will relish the opportunity to become a Powerfest champion,” said Tom Waters, Managing Director of partypoker.
