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.

POWERFEST Promotions

POWERFEST leaderboards are running throughout the series – one for each of the three Low, Medium and High buy-in categories – and will be updated every week. A total of 150 prizes are guaranteed. These range from semi-final tickets worth $109 – for the top five players on the Low Leaderboard – up to $10,000 packages for November’s prestigious $10,000,000 million guaranteed Caribbean Poker Party in Punta Cana.

The POWERFEST Tournament of Champions will see all the winners of the 330 events on the schedule compete against each other in a fantastic $20,000 freeroll at the end of the series.

PartyPoker is excited for POWERFEST!

We’re laying on more events than ever, providing more ways to win, and offering a vastly increased $35,000,000 in guaranteed prize money. We’ve also increased the number of promotions we’re running; in fact, we’re even giving players who don’t cash the chance to win something in our Last Chance Tourney. Other great promotions offer the chance to become the latest partypoker Online Pro and compete for great prizes. This includes a package for the Caribbean Poker Party in November.”

partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard said: “I really love Powerfest! It’s such a great series and this schedule is definitely the best yet. 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.

Partypoker partners with WSOP for first time, making live debut in Brazil


Breaking News!​ You can also read the blog here: Blog Post
Also here it is live in Party’s Site: partypoker LIVE 

partypoker is partnering with the World Series of Poker to provide exclusive online satellites to the $1 million guaranteed WSOP Brazil Main Event. Hosted in Sao Paulo that starts on 24th September. Satellites are starting this Sunday (July 30), giving players the chance to win a $1,500 package for WSOP Brazil for as little as $2.20.

WSOP Brazil, sponsored by partypoker LIVE, will be running September 27 to October 4. In the spectacular Bienal pavilion in Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo. This will be partypoker’s first live event in the LATAM region where poker has been enjoying spectacular growth. More than eight million Brazilians already play poker, with over a million new players taking up the sport every year.

Last year’s inaugural WSOP Brazil event attracted more than 12,000 players across the eight-day festival. Brazilian Francisco Moura won the $1,100 buy-in Main Event for $238,372 after beating a field of more than 1,000 players.

 

Qualify exclusively on partypoker for $1,000,000 guaranteed WSOP Brazil Main Event September 24th

 

partypoker will be running a three phase qualifier program for WSOP Brazil with online Quarter and Semi Finals phases every day. And a weekly Final each Sunday which comes with ten $1,500 WSOP Brazil seats guaranteed. The $1,500 prize package comprises the $1,100 buy in for WSOP Brazil plus $400 spending money.

The Quarter and Semi Final phases on partypoker will give players of all bankrolls the chance to compete at WSOP Brazil, and the satellite program offers a great mix of regular, turbo and hyper turbo formats. Players can start their journey to Sao Paulo in any phase and carry their chips forward to the next; Quarter Finals costs $2.20 and Semi Finals are $22. Players can also buy in direct into the weekly Final.  Which guarantees ten $1,500 WSOP Brazil packages and costs $215 to enter. The first WSOP Brazil Final satellite will be on Sunday August 6.

Finally, among those set to compete at WSOP Brazil is partypoker Ambassador Joao Simao. The 28-year-old hails from Belo Horizonte, the state capital of Minas Gerais in Brazil. It’s one of his country’s most successful poker players. Simao has over $5.5 million in online cashes and captured the PocketFives world #1 title last year. He has also had huge success on the live circuit and has thrived at partypoker LIVE events. His total live tournament winnings of more than $850,000.  Include a fifth place in the £10k partypoker MILLIONS Nottingham High Roller in April for £85,000.  Also a victory in the $10k partypoker CPP High Roller last November for $88,500.

Simao said: “I am so excited that partypoker is sponsoring WSOP Brazil. It’s an incredible event and I am very proud that I will be competing there this year as a representative for partypoker. As a partypoker Ambassador, I look forward to welcoming hundreds of partypoker players to my country to compete against the best players in Brazil. You will be taking part in one of the world’s biggest poker tournaments and are all going to have a great time!”

Partypoker excited for the opportunity to expand to Brazil

partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said: “We are absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to partner the World Series of Poker for the first time.  Especially in a country like Brazil where poker has such a huge and enthusiastic following. Hence, no one should miss the chance to compete here – the atmosphere at poker tournaments in Brazil is just incredible.

“Brazilians absolutely love poker and have no hesitation in showing it; anyone who has seen them railing one of their fellow countrymen will know what I mean! For partypoker to be going to Brazil for the first time with an event as prestigious as the World Series of Poker is just fantastic. We are all really looking forward to it and delighted we are able to give partypoker players the chance to join us.”
