The partypoker Powerfest returns in May and it is bigger and with more than 300 events and $20 million guaranteed, it is bigger and better than ever before.
At least $20,000,000 will be won over the course of 15 days of poker action, starting on May 7 and concluding on May 21. There is a buy-in for everyone as events cost between $5.50 up to a massive $25,500.
The $25,500 buy-in event is a Super High Roller scheduled for May 17 and sees all fees from it ($500) donated to a charity of the champion’s choosing. If the Super HIgh Roller has more than 100 entrants, partypoker will add $50,000 to the charitable donation.
One of the highlights of the 300-strong events are eight multi-phased tournaments with combined guarantees of some $3.6 million. Phase 1’s for these exciting tournaments range from $5.50 up to $530 to enter and run several times daily throughout the $20 million guaranteed Powerfest.
As with previous editions of Powerfest, there is a Main Event for each of the four weight divisions. All four Main Events take place on May 21 and have combined guarantees of $2,150,000.

Managing Director of partypoker, Tom Waters, said: “We decided to go for it this time and increase the total guaranteed prizepool 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.”
partypoker ambassador Sam Trickett said: ”I will be playing more online events than ever in this new edition of Powerfest on partypoker. The addition of the $25K Super High Roller is great and it’s a really nice touch from partypoker to donate all fees to charity.”
