partypoker has released the finer details of their forthcoming $30m GTD POWERFEST including five Championship events, and Team Online members Matt & Jamie Staples, and Hristivoe “ALLInPav” Pavlovic pick up online victories.
The poker popping piranhas are preparing for a pleasurable POWERFEST on partypoker.
Until this morning, all we knew was the Tom Waters, and the team had pledged $30m in guarantees and asked us all to pencil the dates March 31 to April 14 into our Google Calendars.
We did that.
Now we know more.
The drums are beating.
The countdown has begun.
Beginning March 31, partypoker’s latest POWERFEST will roll out the first of more than 250 tournaments over a 15-day timespan that will drive poker players positively potty.
As has become standard, the action breaks down into more manageable chunks with Low, Medium, High, High Roller and Super High Roller buy-in categories. That means tournament buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $25,500.
If you have the time, patience, and bankroll you can qualify via specially branded POWERFEST SPINS competitions for as low as five bucks.
The POWERFEST Championship Events
The bog-standard sheepdog of these things is to have a single Main Event spread across the plethora of buy-in categories, but partypoker is no sheepdog, it’s a bulldog.
You get not one, but five Championship events.
Here they are:
Thu 4 April: $10,300 buy-in, $1m GTD NLHE, 8-Max
Thu 11 April: $25,500 buy-in, $2.5m GTD NLHE 8-Max
Sun 14 April: $320 buy-in, $1m GTD NLHE, PKO
Sun 14 April $2,100 buy-in, $1m GTD NLHE, PKO
Sun 14 April $5,200 buy-in, $1m GTD, 8-Max
That $25,500 buy-in event is a life-changer.
Last time out, WWWpartyCOM defeating 202-entrants to win the $872,839 top prize.
If you want in, then here is the schedule in full.
partypoker’s Team Online Pick up Wins
Matt Staples, the first player to sign for the newly minted partypoker Team Online, had a WWE suplex of a weekend. Staples took down the $55 buy-in, $20k GTD DeepStack for $3,820 on Sunday, but ended the day with the most significant combined losing session of his career.
Staples’ brother Jamie, joins partypoker officially on May 4, and he also picked up a victory on the weekend taking down the $82 buy-in, $10k GTD Warm Up on partypoker earning $2,450.
One man who shoved the Staples brothers into the shade was team Online’s Hristivoe “ALLInPav” Pavlovic who won four events last week. The Australian began by topping a field of 51-entrants in the $530 buy-in Bounty Hunter High Roller for close to $10k. Next, he won the $55 buy-in, 6-Max Bounty Hunter, beating 200-entrants to win the $1,966.47 first prize. Pavlovic completed a hat-trick of partypoker Bounty Hunter titles by beating 93-entrants to win his second $530 buy-in event for $13,490.58. Then, to prove he isn’t a one site wonder, the partypoker Team Online star won the 105-entrant, $55 buy-in NLHE PKO on PokerStars for $540.
That’s why they signed them.
