PartyPoker Powerfest to Kick Off on March 31 with $30M GTD
The online poker tables at PartyPoker have been busy with several series thus far in 2019, but another one is just around the corner.
At the start of February, PartyPoker put up its KO Series, a two-week festival of dozens of tournaments and $15 million in guarantees. The entire tournament was comprised of knockout events with buy-ins at six levels: micro, low, medium, high, high roller, and super high roller.
Then there was the Monster Series, something specifically for low-stakes players but still about $2.5 million in guarantees. There were more than 100 tournaments, seven of which were championship events, that wrapped up on March 17. But for those who missed it, have no fear, as another Monster Series is already set for June 2-9 with another $2.5 million guaranteed.

In one week, however, the tables online open up for Powerfest, the highlight of them all for PartyPoker players.
Powerfest is preparing to get underway on March 31 and run for 15 days, ending on April 14.
The series will offer more than 250 tournaments, with a wide range of buy-ins that start as low as $5.50 and go as high as $25,500. The poker offerings will include Hold’em and Omaha, but there will be a variety of formats, such as mix-max, deepstacks, turbos and hyper-turbos, progressive knockouts, slow blinds, and six-handed and eight-handed.
And in all the total prize pool guarantees are about $30 million.

The first day of action alone will put up 25 tournaments and more than $3.7 million in guarantees, but most days of the series will offer about eight tournaments. Sundays will always be an exception as players demand more events.
One of the unique highlights of this Powerfest is the $320s. There will be Powerfest $320 tournaments every day at 20:00CET, putting 14 of them on the schedule, all of which will be progressive knockouts (PKOs). The first day’s guarantee will be $500K, and thought most of the others will be $100K or $150K, the final one will be a championship event with a $1 million guarantee.
Another highlight, for players and fans alike, will be the super high roller events. There will be a $10,300 buy-in on April 4 with a $1 million guarantee, and the following Thursday, April 11, will bring in a $2.5 million guarantee for the $25,500 buy-in event.
There will be five championship events, and their cumulative prize pools will guarantee $6.5 million and winner trophies. They are not all on the final weekend, however.
