Today, partypoker kicks off the “Pokerfest: Micro Turbo Edition,” an 18-day online poker series packed with 50 inexpensive, fast-paced, multi-table tournaments and $50,000 in total guaranteed prize pools. The tournament series is exclusively for those in New Jersey.
“I’m spending most of late January grinding live at the World Poker Tour Borgata Winter Poker Open* — if I bust a live event I can play online and Pokerfest is ideal as it offers a great variety of games and I don’t have to commit too much time because of the turbo format,” said Team partypoker’s Scott Baumstein.
