Off the felt

CPP wouldn’t be a real party without an exciting schedule of off the felt activities. Fun/free events are lined up for partypoker players. This includes complimentary welcome drinks and cocktail parties, golf days, zip lines, a catamaran trip and an unmissable night at Coco Bongo nightclub.

partypoker Ambassador Sam Trickett, the UK’s #1 live tournament player, said: “The Caribbean Poker Party is definitely one of my favourite tournaments and holds extra special memories for me as it was during the event last year that I joined the partypoker team. I would love to run deep in any of the events on this year’s CPP schedule. Furthermore, to take on a number of the best players in the world. I’ve yet to cash in the Caribbean but I fully intend to change that record in Punta Cana! I’m also looking forward to all the fun things to do out there. Additionally, meeting as many partypoker players as possible. Whether it’s on the beach, at one of the many parties, or at the poker tables.”

partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said: “With $10,000,000 in guarantees, this year’s Caribbean Poker Party is going to absolutely massive. Lastly, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to be in the Caribbean in November? Lots of sun, lots of partying and lots of poker – it’s going to be an unmissable event. We’re looking forward to welcoming hundreds of partypoker qualifiers for the trip of a lifetime.”

Think poker loyalty schemes are all the same? Think again! Our unique Poker Challenges can reward you for simple tasks like being dealt a pair – adding an element of surprise to every hand. You can also sharpen your game by playing strategically to complete the trickier Challenges.  The start of a new quarter means the start of a new set of Poker Challenges! All Challenges Points will be reset on 1st October and new Minor and Major Challenges set for players.

Through our innovative loyalty program, players can earn rewards including free cash, playthrough bonuses, poker tickets. Additionally, the opportunity to a package for the Unibet Open, the next stop of which will be in beautiful Bucharest!

How do I earn Challenges Points?

For each poker type, you’ll always have two Challenges active – a Minor and a Major. Minor Challenges are the easiest, e.g. ‘Be dealt a suited hand’, whereas Major Challenges usually require more strategy, e.g. ‘Win a hand postflop when you have any hand worse than one pair’.

Each Challenge is split into steps, and that’s how many times you have to complete the task to receive your Challenges Points. A Challenge showing 5/30 means you’ve completed the task 5 times, and you’ve got 25 more to go before your points are awarded.

Multi-table tournaments don’t have their own Challenges – instead, they award Challenges Points directly. For every €1 you spend in tournament fees, you’ll receive 100 points.

What can I do with Challenges Points?

Challenges Points track your progression, and you’ll start earning rewards as soon as you get 50 points. Rewards include free cash, new avatars, playthrough bonuses, poker tickets and bonus points. You can then exchange any bonus points you earn for extra rewards of your choice!

For more information about how Poker Challenges work, see our Help Centre.

Unibet Poker to launch new online MTT schedule

Unibet have announced that they are overhauling their online MTT schedule. Three years after launching their standalone Poker platform with Relax Gaming.  Until now, Unibet has focused much of their efforts on software improvements and headline cash game promotions. As a result, their efforts won them the EGR ‘Poker Innovation of the Year’ three years in a row. However, Unibet are now looking to make themselves more competitive on the MTT front. With flagship Sunday tournaments being added to the client for the first time, two new blind structures for players to enjoy, a space theme and numerous improvements to the MTT lobby. The new schedule was devised in conjunction with players and Unibet ambassadors. Furthermore, the operator have said that they will optimize the schedule on an ongoing basis. They monitor this by continuing to take feedback from players on their community site.

The new schedule will begin to populate in the Unibet Poker client on the morning of October 2nd, with the first Sunday Majors taking place on October 8th.

The details of these flagship Sunday (hold’em) tournaments are as follows:
Start time (CEST) Name Buyin GTD Prizepool Starting Stack Blind levels (minutes) Format
17:00 Cosmic Rays €10 €5,000 3,000 8 Unlimited Rebuys
17:00 Spectrum €5 €2,000 3,000 8 Unlimited Rebuys
18:00 Ice Giant €25 €5,000 10,000 10 Progressive Bounty
19:00 Supernova €100 €20,000 15,000 12 Freezeout
19:00 Nebula €5 €2,000 10,000 8 Freezeout
20:00 Odyssey €50 €5,000 5,000 12 2R1A
Unibet is also planning to improve their qualifier structure for live events soon.  Pooling all low stakes live event qualifiers under one umbrella. In addition to allowing players to choose which Unibet tour they would like to play a final qualifier for. The date for that change is yet to be announced.

Unibet Poker Leader feels the timing is right to make change

David Pomroy, Head of Poker at Unibet said, “As tournament players ourselves, we’ve been planning to overhaul our MTT schedule for a while but wanted to focus on software improvements first. The client is in great shape now and so it’s time we gave MTT players at Unibet and beyond something to shout about. The new structures we’re adding will feature antes from the start and give players a much smoother transition between levels. We’re also excited to add larger prizepools in fields where players don’t have to battle against thousands of other players. As always we’ll be encouraging feedback from players and will tweak and optimize things over time. We’re also going to be aggressive with guarantees across the schedule, increasing them wherever we see increased demand.”
The launch of the schedule will coincide with a re-work of a popular Unibet promotion, Moving On Up, rewarding players with cash game tickets at increasing stakes each week once they have played a minimum number of MTTs. The value of the tickets given away will increase each week in October, culminating with a €25 cash game ticket. Moreover, given to all players who have played five MTTs on each of six separate days the final week.

Partypoker releases POWERFEST schedule as well as four great promotions

The series runs Sunday, 3rdSeptember through to Sunday, 24th September. In addition, partypoker will be four headline promotions with over $300,000 in bonuses, plus a few once in a life time opportunities. 

There have been five POWERFEST festivals so far– and each one has been bigger than the last. This sixth edition features a staggering 330 events, including a record 12 Championship events, ten of which have guarantees of $1 million or more. partypoker is also hosting four great promotions during POWERFEST including the brand new Last Man Standing promotion rewarding players who cash on every Sunday of the series (full details below). The last POWERFEST in May had a $20 million guarantee but ended up accumulating over $27 million in prizepools.

With three different buy-in categories, and a ton of phased events and satellites, the September POWERFEST schedule is designed to appeal to poker players of all bankrolls:

In the low buy-in category, there are more than twenty $5.50 tournaments. In addition, they all carry guaranteed prize pools of at least $10,000, and several with guarantees of $20,000. The flagship Championship Event (POWERFEST #325) costs just $11 and comes with a whopping $50,000 guarantee. This includes a guaranteed $10,000 for the winner.

The high buy-in category features scores of No Limit Hold’em events with buy-ins of $109 and above. Many carry guaranteed prize pools of at least $100,000. The biggest event of all is the prestigious $25,500 Super High Roller which comes with a $3 million guarantee! It’s set to be one of the most exciting events of the year. Part of the last POWERFEST in May, the Super High Roller attracted 129 entries and generated a guarantee-busting $3,225,000 prize pool. “juanpardo99” took it down for $660,067 with partypoker Ambassadors Joao Simao and Sam Trickett both making the final table.

One brand new addition to this September’s series is the POWERFEST Ladies event. A huge number of women enjoy playing on partypoker!  So it seems likely the $109 buy-in event on 24th September will smash the $10,000 guarantee.

Overall, there’s a great balance on the schedule, and plenty to whet players’ appetites. Top pros will have the chance to buy in direct to the biggest tournaments. They will battle it out in $1 million guarantee Championship Events. Furthermore, there’s lots on the schedule for recreational players. They will get to compete for huge prizes, but at a buy-in they feel comfortable with. There’s also the first POWERFEST Ladies Event and I’m looking forward to railing that one; partypoker has such a strong community of female players. I know they’ll be excited for the chance to compete against each other for such a big prize pool. I can’t wait for POWERFEST to start next Sunday and wish all our players tons of luck.”

partypoker heads back to Vienna with €500,000 guarantee Grand Prix Austria, 29th September- 9th October

Partypoker is heading back to Vienna next month for a second edition of Grand Prix Austria. One of the most spectacular poker destinations in Europe.

The €500,000 guaranteed partypoker Grand Prix Austria takes place at Montesino Poker from 29th September to 9th October. Players choose from a host of online or live Day 1s – as well as exclusive online feeder satellites starting next Monday (28th August) from as little as $1.10.

The debut Grand Prix Austria took place in April and was a massive success. There were more than 2,500 entries for the €200+€25 buy-in event generating a €518,000 prize pool – easily beating the event’s €500k guarantee. Slovakia’s Andrej Desset took it down for €92,000. Additionally, he made history a few weeks later when he won Grand Prix Germany in Rozvadov for an additional €100,000.

Among the 344 players who made money in Vienna were European stars such as Sebastian Pauli, Konstantinos Nanos and Christophe Gross.  Additionally, partypoker Ambassador Natalia Breviglieri who finished 34th for €1,800 and Jan-Peter Jachtmann who was 227th for €400.

PartyPoker is looking forward to building on previous success

 

For the return visit in September, partypoker is again putting up a €500,000 guarantee.  Furthermore, we are hoping to beat April’s sensational turnout. Among those set to compete in Vienna are partypoker sponsored pros Marcel Luske, Natalia Breviglieri and Jan-Peter Jachtmann.

Once again, partypoker is running its popular Golden Chip Promo. The first 100 players to make Day 2 will receive a Golden Chip. If a Golden Chip player manages to make the Final Table, they win a $10k package to the Caribbean Poker Party in November.

Feeder satellites will kick off from next Monday, making it possible to qualify for Grand Prix Austria from as little as $1.10. The first online Day 1 is on partypoker on 3rd September, and costs just $120+$15 to enter. There will also be numerous live Day 1s around Austria, starting Friday 29th September and taking place at Montesino Poker.  In addition to eight partner casinos including Bregenz, Innsbruck and Salzburg.

The fantastic Grand Prix Austria structure gives players a 50,000 starting stack with all players making Day 2 guaranteed a min cash of €250. For those short on time, a series of turbo and hyper turbo Day 1 events will also be available. These are taking place both online on partypoker, and live at Montesino Poker and Concord Card Casino Simmering in Vienna.

The online Day 2 is on Saturday 7th October, with live Day 2s in Vienna on 8th October. The live final Day 3 is on 9th October at Montesino Poker.  Consequently, we will see the blind levels increase to 60 minutes.

Beautiful Cities bring more excitement for the upcoming tournament

 

The Montesino is one of Europe’s premier poker rooms with a long history of running major live poker events. There are more than 40 tables available for both tournaments and cash games. More so, they have restaurants, and sports bar with a fantastic terrace affording panoramic views across the city.

Vienna is a beautiful city located on the banks of the famous Danube river. Once home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss, the city is often described as the cultural capital of Europe. It’s easily accessible by plane or train, and the wealth of cafes, bars and restaurants make it a perfect destination for poker players.

Sponsored pro Marcel Luske said: “I am really looking forward to a return visit to Vienna. It’s such a wonderful city with great bars and restaurants, and simply stunning architecture. The Montesino Poker card room is one of the best in Europe: super friendly and knowledgeable staff – and very professional dealers. This is going to be a great event for poker players from all over the world.

partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said: “We are really thrilled to be heading back to Vienna next month. The last event was such a huge success and we expect even more players to compete in this second edition. Personally, I love Vienna – I have been coming here to play poker for more years than I care to mention and it’s always a great atmosphere. It’s also an incredibly easy city to get to, which is a major plus for poker players of all kinds.
