Powerfest Returns to partypoker May 7
Powerfest is returning to partypoker on May 7-21 with more than 300 events. The poker festival will be bigger than ever with more than $20 million in combined guaranteed prize pools.
Powerfest caters to poker players with both big and small bankrolls. The event buy-ins range from as low as $5 to as high as $25,500. While most are in the popular no-limit hold'em format, there are many other poker variants available to players. Additionally, many different tournament structures will be featured throughout the festival.
Unlike other online poker festivals, Powerfest features not one, but four different Main Events. All of the Main Events during the next edition of Powerfest are on May 21 as follows:
- $11 Powerfest #291 Main Event $50K Gtd.
- $55 Powerfest #292 Main Event $100K Gtd.
- $215 Powerfest #293 Main Event $1M Gtd.
- $1,050 Powerfest #295 Main Event $1M Gtd. High Roller
In addition to two of the Main Events with $1 million guaranteed prize pools, there are six other events guaranteed to pay out at least seven-digit hauls in the festival. This includes the $25,500 Powerfest #301 - $2M Gtd. Super High Roller, which will attract many big names including partypoker Ambassador Sam Trickett. Partypoker announced it will not only donate all the rake to a charity of the tournament winners choice, but also toss another $50,000 on top if the tournament attracts at least 100 players.
