POWERFEST 4 weeks, 98 events, $5 million guaranteed
Partypoker is gearing up to launch POWERFEST, the biggest annual tournament so far! Taking a cue from the Power Series weekly tournament line-up, POWERFEST brings 4 weeks of massive tournaments featuring 98 exciting events and a staggering $5 million guaranteed!
- Running from the 21st February to the 20th March
- 98 total tournaments spanning over 4 weeks, with a combined prize pool of $5 million guaranteed
- Buy-ins range from $5.50 to $5,200.
- The format is broken down into four separate weeks, during which the stakes and buy-ins increase. Plus, each week features its own Main Event, offering a huge guarantee with a comparatively small buy-in.
- The winner of each of the 98 events will be entered into the Tournament of Champions on Sunday, 27.03.2016. Each of the 98 players will win a range of prizes including Power Series Tickets worth $5.50 to $530 and one winner will take home the grand prize, a $5,000 Las Vegas trip of a lifetime, which includes flights and five nights hotel accommodation for two people, one tournament entry into the WPT500 at The Aria, $1,000 spending money and dinner with partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton, plus a signed copy of his new book, Life’s a Gamble. In addition, they will receive boxing gloves signed by partypoker ambassador and former boxing world champion Carl Froch, as well as the prized Tournament of Champions winner’s belt.
Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters said: “Our online poker festival, now named Powerfest, is an iconic partypoker event. With our best ever guarantee, players can turn as little as $5.50 into a share of $25,000 or $1,050 into a share of $500,000 in the final Main Event, with $100,000 guaranteed for first place. This is poker for the people no matter the size of your bankroll.”
Partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton comments: “I love that partypoker is introducing the Tournament of Champions element into the new Powerfest. This allows all the winners of each buy-in level to compete for their chance to win the memory of a lifetime. I look forward to hosting the winners in Vegas this summer”
