By the time the 330th and final Powerfest event crowns its champion, at least $35 million will have been awarded to those skilful and lucky enough to navigate their way through to the money places of those events. There is a good chance that much more prize money will be paid out because when the $20 million guaranteed Powerfest in May, a staggering $27,012,812 was distributed among the 65,698 players who cashed in an event.
Although no-limit hold’em tournament make up the bulk of the 330 events, there are a total of 12 pot-limit Omaha freezeouts on the schedule. Half of these events have a $22 buy-in, the other half command a $109 buy-in, and the combined guarantees weigh in at $180,000.
Those of you have have been scouring the schedule and planning what events to play will no doubt have stumbled across a new addition to Powerfest. On September 24, for the first time ever, partypoker is hosting a Powerfest Ladies event, which is only open to our female customers.
You may also be aware that there are 12 massive Championship Events on the Powerfest schedule, each with a guaranteed prize pool of at least $1 million. Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated of these Championship Events is the $25,500 buy-in Super High Roller and its $3 million guarantee.
When we ran this star-studded event at the previous Powerfest, 129 entries were processed and a $3,225,000 prize pool created. The champion that night was “juanpardo99” who collected a gargantuan $660,067 for his victory, while partypoker ambassadors Joao Simao and Sam Trickett fell in fifth and eighth-place for scores of $193,500 and $96,750.
