partypoker Gears up for the $40 Million Guaranteed POWERFEST
The 366 events are split into low, medium and high buy-in levels, much like partypoker’s previous POWERFEST, Monster Series and Power Series festivals and schedules. This series features a number of different formats including no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo and Progressive KO tournaments, the latter allowing you to win big without the need to reach the money places.
|Category||Events||Buy-in range||Total guarantees|
|Micro||78||$1.10 to $3.30||$263,500|
|Low||78||$5.50 to $16.50||$1,217,000|
|Medium||78||$27.50 to $55||$4,190,000|
|High||74||$109 to $215||$9,800,000|
There are also 58 events that come under the High Roller and Super High Roller buy-in level. These have buy-ins of $530 to $25,500 and feature guaranteed prize pools in excess of $27 million.
Sundays are the biggest days on the POWERFEST schedule with more than $5.8 million guaranteed on each Sunday. The lineup for Sunday includes at least three so-called Championship Events, each with a guarantee of at least $1 million.

partypoker has removed the rake from the bounty element of PKO tournaments for the POWERFEST series, which means that the bounties on offer will be bigger than they have ever been at the site, which in turn means more value for those playing in PKO events.
