Remember how awesome Pokerfest was? Well, it is being given a Power Series makeover to make it even bigger and better than before.
Introducing the $5,000,000 guaranteed, that’s correct, FIVE MILLION dollars guaranteed Powerfest, which is coming to partypoker from February 21 and stays on your screens until March 20. A staggering 98 Powerfest tournaments are scheduled during these four weeks, with each week focussing on each of our Power Series categories: Featherweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight, and High Roller.

The final schedule will be released to you soon, but trust us when we say it is going to be awesome. In addition to the massive $5 million worth of guaranteed prize pools, we are running a festival-long promotion called the Tournament of Champions.
As the name suggest, this one-off tournament is only open to those of you who are crowned Powerfest champions, meaning entry is only open to those 98 players who win a Powerfest event. Each of the 98 players competing in the Tournament of Champions is guaranteed tournament tickets from $5.50 up to $530, with the overall winner banking a trip of a lifetime to Las Vegas!
The Tournament of Champions winner collects a $5,000 package that includes:
- Five nights accommodation for two people
- An entry to the WPT500 at Aria
- $1,000 spending money
- Dinner with partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton
- A signed copy of Mike Sexton’s new book, Life’s a Gamble
- A pair of boxing gloves signed by four-time world champion boxer, Carl Froch
- Bragging rights among the partypoker community!
Speaking of the upcoming Powerfest, partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton said: “I love that partypoker are introducing the Tournament of Champions element into the new Powerfest. This allows all the winners of each buy-in level to compete for their chance to win a memory of a lifetime. I look forward to hosting the winners in Vegas this summer.”
Tom Waters, Group Head of partypoker, is also excited for the Powerfest: “Our online poker festival, now named Powerfest, is an iconic partypoker event. With our best ever guarantee, players can turn as little as $5.50 into a share of $25,000 or $1,050 into a share of $500,000 in the final Main Event with $100,000 guaranteed for first place. This is poker for the people no matter the size of your bankroll.”
