Partypoker's Pokerfest Huge Success with Guarantees Crushed

Partypoker's Pokerfest Huge Success with Guarantees Crushed 0001

Pokerfest was a huge success on partypoker, with the 80 scheduled tournaments decimating the combined $2.5 million guaranteed prize pools by awarding players over $3,355,118 in prizes. The tournament festival just ended its action-packed 15-day schedule this past weekend with its events taking place from Oct. 25 to Nov. 8.

Part of the reason for the huge success is that the tournament festival featured something for every type of poker player, with buy-ins ranging from as low as $5 to as high as $2,100.

Most of the events took place in the most popular no-limit hold'em format, however, the schedule also featured six pot-limit Omaha events. Additionally, the schedule featured a variety of poker tournament formats including full-ring freezeout, six-max, turbo, hyper-turbo, rebuy, reentry, and bounty.

As you might imagine, the highlight of the online poker festival was the Pokerfest $300,000 Gtd NLHE Main Event on Nov. 8, which was Event #73 on the schedule. This tournament attracted 1,469 players for $250 each to generate a $342,277 prize pool.

The winner of the event was "Tschilli", banking $52,506 for his efforts. Also scoring big in this tournament was "zupersherlock", snagging $38,129 for second place ,and "easylimppp", taking home $27,656 for third place.

Despite "Tschili" having the honor of winning the most prestigious event on the Pokerfest schedule, it was "nipa3p3" who won the most money in a single event after shipping Pokerfest #75: $75,000 Gtd NLHE Super High Roller for $57,510.

This event proved to be much more popular than partypoker realized when scheduling it, with 135 runners buying in for $2,100 to generate a $270,000 prize pool — or 360 percent larger than the $75,000 guarantee.

Here is a look at all the final table finishes for Pokerfest events that generated at least a $50,000 prize pool.
