POWERFEST Returns to partypoker with $60 Million in Guaranteed Prizes


Poker players around the world are fired up for the return of POWERFEST at partypoker on Sept. 2-23.

The festival will be the biggest in its history with 670 events and more than $60 million in guaranteed prize pools. To put this into perspective, the last POWERFEST in May featured a much smaller schedule of 366 events and $40 million in guarantees.

The schedule has something for everyone with buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $25,500. The events are broken down into six categories based on their buy-in; with Micro, Low, Medium, High, High Rollers and Super High Rollers.

A total of 20 events are designated Championship Events with 15 of them featuring at least $1 million guarantees. The winner of each of these special tournaments will be awarded a trophy in addition to what should be a massive cash prize. The biggest Championship Event is the $25,500 Super High Roller on Sept. 20 with a mouth-watering $3 million guaranteed prize pool.

There will be plenty of opportunities for players to get into any POWERFEST event at a fraction of a cost with tons of satellite and feeder tournaments running around the clock.
