2015 Pokerfest Live: The Action At The Dusk Till Dawn
If you like live poker, you should consider to be part of the first-ever live leg of the Pokerfest and visit the DTD poker room between Aug. 2 and Sept 6.

How to Qualify to The Pokerfest
As usual, you have plenty of ways to join the action without paying for the full buy-in.
Online Satellites. Satellite tournaments to win a seat in the events part of the Pokerfest Online calendar started today, Jul. 1, and will run daily until Sept. 1 at partypoker. Online qualifiers have the possibility to win a seat in the Main Event for as little as $20 in the Qualifier to Pokerfest Main Event tournaments. The players interested in other events in the schedule can also try to snap a seat for a fraction of the regular buy-in, as the satellites currently available offer tickets to the $20 buy-in events for as little as $2.
Buy a package. If satellites are not your thing and you have been loyal to partypoker for some time, you can literally 'buy' a discounted entry to the events of your choice by using your points. The packages on tap start from 650 points to play all the $5 events and go all the way up to 41,000 points for The Total Package, a monstrous package that will give you access to all the events in the schedule.
Here's a look at the packages available at partypoker's Points Store:
The Missions. partypoker has created a series of new missions that will give you the opportunity to earn a ticket to one of the events in the calendar, even if you don't actually manage to win it 'on the field.'
