The biggest partypoker POWERFEST ever kicks off this Sunday with a record $35 million in guaranteed prize pools across three weeks of online action. 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.
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 top five players on the High Leaderboard receive this prize. Players earn Leaderboard points every single time they finish in the money in any event. In addition, they will be eligible in any category they compete in. A handy Leaderboard Calculator makes it easy for players to work out the points they’ve earned for any given cash.
Four great promotions will provide an additional $300,000 in prizes, as well as the chance to become the next partypoker Online Pro.
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. Up for grabs is the title of partypoker Online Pro along with a top prize worth $10,000 in Power Series tickets, including free entries to The Title Fight and The Main Event. The remaining $10K in the prize pool will be paid out as per the payout structure in the partypoker client. The POWERFEST Tournament of Champions takes place on 1st October at 21:00 BST (22:00 CEST).
The POWERFEST Last Chance Tourney is a fantastic freeroll. It is open to any player who has competed regularly but failed to cash. Players can compete for $10,000 in prizes if they have taken part in five POWERFEST tourneys or more but haven’t managed to make the money. With a top prize of $2,500 – and paying out to the top 100 finishers, the Last Chance Tourney is being held on 1st October, at 21:00 BST (22:00 CEST).

PartyPoker is excited for POWERFEST!
partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters said: “Now that the full POWERFEST schedule has been released, we are hoping all our players will be as excited as we are about this September’s series. 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.”
