Partypoker has taken the decision to postpone the upcoming $2,500,000 guaranteed Pokerfest series which was due to commence on Sunday, 27 September 2015.
A number of performance issues have impacted certain aspects of the service following some software updates this week. These issues are currently being resolved and until they are rectified, the decision has been taken to postpone the start of Pokerfest online festival until Sunday, 25 October 2015.
The revised Pokerfest schedule will be published on both the partypoker website, here at the partypoker blog and to all players via email. If you have already registered for any of the events, you’ll receive a full refund of your buy-ins directly into your account.
We understand that the postponement is frustrating and disappointing to you, our loyal customers, but providing a service that gives you the best experience possible is our number one priority.
To recognise your continued loyalty and to compensate for any inconvenience caused, partypoker is adding a $50,000 freeroll tournament to the updated Pokerfest schedule. Exact dates and time will be released at the time of the new schedule.
Golan Shaked, Director of Games Labels, said this about the postponement:
“I apologise to our loyal players for having to delay this highly anticipated event. With a total prize pool of $2,500,000 up for grabs, we are not willing to take even the slightest risk with our players’ experience during the 80 events that make up Pokerfest. To make-up for the inconvenience, we have added a $50,000 freeroll to the updated schedule in appreciation of our customers’ loyalty.”
With the postponement of Pokerfest, the tournament schedule will revert to our excellent selection of Sunday Majors. You can read more about those by clicking the following link.
