$11m GTD, 224 Events on Deck for Biggest-Ever Powerfest


If you're an online poker player - and specifically a tournament player - you might never leave your house in January.

As if the massive Super XL Series or TCOOP weren't enough, the partypoker Powerfest is back at the end of the month too with 224 events and $11,000,000 guaranteed between January 22 and February 5.

You read that right. 224 events. $11 million in guaranteed prize pools.

Another truly gigantic, all-encompassing two-week online poker festival -- and one that includes two $1 million guaranteed events.

Biggest in the History of Powerfest

As has become the norm in online poker festivals, variety and volume are in no short supply.

Whatever your weight class, something for you.

The 2017 Powerfest is no exception with an astonishing 224 events on the calendar and buy-in levels ranging from $5.50 to $5,200 including 4 separate Main Events.

As usual Powerfest tournaments are ranked by "weight classes," running from Featherweight and Middleweight to Heavyweight and High Roller.

The Featherweight class has events between $5 and $11 with an $11 Main Event set for Jan. 29. The Middleweight Class covers $22-$55 buy-ins with a $55 Main Event also scheduled for Jan. 29.

The Heavyweight Class has $109-$215 buy-ins capped by a $215 Main Even on Feb. 5 with $500,000 GTD. For the big guns in the High Roller Class ($520-$5,200 buy-ins), a $1,050 Main Event with $1m GTD will also run on Feb. 5 

Plenty of satellites into the big events are also available.

As an added perk, tourney tickets worth over $225,000 for the upcoming £6m partypoker Millions are there to be won via the Powerfest leaderboard.

"Hosting Powerfest," says Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters, "with our biggest ever guarantee of over $11,000,000 is an exciting challenge for us.

"We are always looking to build on the success of the previous Powerfests we have hosted. We have increased the guarantees on a number of events this time and have also added some new and improved tournaments to the schedule in response to feedback from our players."
