powerfest2

300+ events. 15 days of wall-to-wall poker. $20 million guaranteed to be paid out.

Let those numbers roll around for a little bit. 

We've seen some big partypoker Powerfests before but the upcoming May series is set to blow them all out of the water with a massive (and diverse) lineup of events and that extraordinary $20m guarantee.

It all starts May 7 and before things wrap on May 21 will see at least 8 events with 7-figure guarantees.

Buy-ins From as Low as $5.50

With John Duthie at the helm and a booming opening event in Sochi setting the tone, the partypoker Live Tour has grand ambitions for 2017 and that clearly hold true for its online tournament vision.

After guaranteeing over $11m in the Jan/Feb version of Powerfest, this May's $20m GTD puts it all on the line:

“We decided to go for it this time," says Managing Director of partypoker, Tom Waters, "and increase the total guaranteed prize pool for the upcoming Powerfest to over $20 million.

"There are some fantastic new headline events in the series, including three $1m guaranteed editions of the Title Fight, a $2m charity event and eight phased tournaments covering a range of buy-ins.

"I’m confident that the players will love the variety of events on offer and will relish the opportunity to become a Powerfest champion.”

With buy-ins from $5.50 all the way up to $25,000, variety is indeed the name of the game. partypoker's signature "multi-phase" tournaments are also front and center with 8 phased events and Phase 1s running several times daily.

Guarantees in those events exceed $3.6m while the four Main Events across four weight classes guarantee $2.1m.

Another highlight will be the new $25,500 Super High Roller on May 17 with fees donated to a charity of the champion’s choosing. If there are more than 100 entrants, partypoker will add $50,000 to the donation.
