PartyPoker Powerfest in Progress Through March 29
It started last weekend. PartyPoker kicked off its latest edition of POWERFEST, a massive online poker tournament series featuring No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha tournaments.
The 488-event series started on March 15 but runs through March 29, giving players plenty of time to participate and take advantage of some of the $20 million in prize pool guarantees.
Massive Array of Events
The fun thing about POWERFEST is its mass appeal. Players can find buy-ins that range from $0.55 all the way up to $25K.
POWERFEST began on March 15 with $20 million in promised prize pools over the course of 145 events. But each of those 145 events have numerous versions, from Micro to Low, Medium, High, and High Roller.
For example, on Sunday, March 22, players can choose from the following events:
–Event 66-Micro: $1.10 buy-in NLHE PKO 6-Max Hyper-Turbo ($500 GTD)
–Event 66-Low: $11 buy-in NLHE PKO 6-Max Hyper-Turbo ($7,500 GTD)
–Event 66-High: $109 buy-in NLHE PKO 6-Max Hyper-Turbo ($20K GTD)
–Event 69-Micro: $2.20 buy-in PLO PKO 6-Max ($1K GTD)
–Event 69-Medium: $22 buy-in PLO PKO 6-Max ($15K GTD)
–Event 69-High: $215 buy-in PLO PKO 6-Max ($40K GTD)
–Event 69-HighRoller: $1050 buy-in PLO PKO 6-Max ($75K GTD)
The above listings are only a portion of what will be on the schedule tomorrow and going forward.
We were guaranteeing $20,000,000 for #POWERFEST but as of yesterday we've upped event guarantees by 25-100%. Now is a better time than ever to play! See todays schedule at https://t.co/ekNkOtgMs8 pic.twitter.com/VgXzWk58OS

Many Main Events
The last day of action will be Sunday, March 29. And it will be the biggest day of the series by far, complete with several versions of a series finale.
The various levels of the NLHE Main Event and PKO Main Event are listed as:
–Event 141-Low: $5.50 NLHE 8-Max PKO Main Event ($20K GTD)
–Event 141-Medium: $55 NLHE 8-Max PKO Main Event ($250K GTD)
–Event 141-High: $320 NLHE 8-Max PKO Main Event ($500K GTD)
–Event 141-HighRoller: $2,100 NLHE 8-Max PKO Main Event ($500K GTD)
–Event 142-Low: $5.50 PLO 6-Max PKO Main Event ($5K GTD)
–Event 142-Medium: $55 PLO 6-Max PKO Main Event ($25K GTD)
–Event 142-High: $320 PLO 6-Max PKO Main Event ($75K GTD)
–Event 142-HighRoller: $2,100 PLO 6-Max PKO Main Event ($200K GTD)
The series wraps later that night, March 29, with some NLHE 6-Max Fast options, NLHE 8-Max PKO Turbo, and NLHE 8-6 Mix-Max PKO Hyper-Turbo action.
The last version of the series was POWERFEST X, which ran from July 28 through August 11, 2019. There were 275 tournaments in all, paying out a final total of $28,892,500 in prize money. The biggest win of the series went to “CocaineKiller,” who won $543,250 by taking down a Super High Roller event.
With the lack of live poker tournament options across most of the world right now due to coronavirus shutdowns, expect bigger numbers each day in this current POWERFEST.
The finale of partypoker’s POWERFEST X offered plenty of six-figure paydays during yesterday’s Sunday Majors.https://t.co/CK0yhf9K8q
