There is a Powerfest scheduled worth $35 million by partypoker that is coming up.
It will start on the first weekend of September and it will have 330 events with the aforementioned amount as guarantee in each. This Powerfest schedule was revealed by party poker recently and those who regularly take part in online tournaments will surely be interested. There would be about 330 tournaments and hence, the schedule will run from 3rd to 24th September.
For those who are new to Powerfest, it is a series of online poker tournaments that was launched last year and proved to be a success. This year it has more events under its fold and its stature has grown as well. Last year this series was launched in the month of February and the guarantee sum was around $5 million. The same year the tournament returned and had a prize pool of the guaranteed sum of $7.8 million. By September 2016 the prize pool amount reached ten million.
Partypoker revealed Powerfest in 2017 with a guaranteed sum of eleven million. There was another festival run before this where the sum guaranteed was twenty million. This previous edition proved to be a huge success and the participation level exceeded expectations. As a result the prize pool went up to 27 million. There had been a high roller event in the previous edition where three million had been a payout as well. In this edition the Super High Roller game had a total of 129 entries. As the same popular game returns, it will see three million as a guarantee in the prize pool. There are many ambassadors and pros that are associated with partypoker such as Sam Trickett, Joao Simao, Roberto Romanello, Patrick Leonard and Dzmitry Urbanovich. There is little doubt that the latest edition will also see record participation.
