$300K GPPT Online and $7.8MM Powerfest Start This Weekend at partypoker



  • May 1 sees both the $300K guaranteed GPPT Online and the first week of Powerfest start at partypoker.

There is plenty to get excited about at partypoker this weekend thanks to the $300,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Poker Tour (GPPT) Online tournament and the $7.8 million guaranteed Powerfest series kicking off on Sunday, May 1.

Sunday marks the start of the third GPPT Online, a multi-day tournament costing $109 to enter, and featuring a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. Every day from May 1-9, there are three Day 1s.

Players play for 16 12-minute levels (eight minutes or the turbo), and if they have chips in front of them at the end of the 16th level, they make it through to Day 2 at 8 p.m. on Monday, May 9. Each Day 1 is a freezeout, but players can play in as many Day 1s as they wish. Even if they progress to Day 2. However, only the largest of their stacks is put into play on Day 2, and the others are forfeited.

Featherweight Week of the $7.8 Million Powerfest

Sunday is made all the more busier by the first seven events of partypoker's $7.8 million guaranteed Powerfest. Like the previous incarnation of Powerfest, this latest festival is split into four different "weight" categories that fit in with partypoker's boxing themed touraments.

Week 1 is the Featherweight week, which means all of the buy-ins, with the exception of the $11 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed Main Event on Sunday, May 8, are $5.50. Despite the low buy-ins, none of the guarantees are less than $5,000, and there is at least one five-figure guarantee every day.
