The tournament with the biggest guarantee, Powerfest #301 – $2M Gtd. Super High Roller, will attract some of the biggest names in poker, including partypoker Ambassador Sam Trickett.
As a generous twist, all of the fees or rake collected by partypoker will be donated to the charity of the tournament winner's choice. Additionally, if the tournament attracts at least 100 players, partypoker will donate another $50,000 on top of the fees to the chosen charity.
”I will be playing more online events than ever in this new edition of Powerfest on partypoker," Trickett said. "The addition of the $25K Super High Roller is great and it’s a really nice touch from partypoker to donate all fees to charity."
Satellites and feeders to all partypoker tournaments start at just $0.01. This provides players a chance to play in any tournament they choose at a fraction of the cost.
