Powerfest is always big, but Powerfest VIII is going to be bigger and better than ever before. With an incredible 366 events taking place over a fabulous fortnight of online poker, 13 of those events will have a million-dollar guarantee.  All you have to do is pick which tournament you'd like to win, and that's where we can help, with the full schedule out today. 

 

With online satellites available from Thursday 12th April, you can qualify for an event for a fraction of any buy-in - just $1.10. After Powerfest VII earlier made hundreds of title winners and tens of thousands of players cashing for millions at the felt, Powerfest VIII is sure to make even more players happy with our biggest guarantee yet - an incredible $40,000,000! 

 

If you've never played a Powerfest event, make sure you leave that cave you've been living in nice and tidy for the next inhabitant and read on, because we'll explain exactly how you can make the most of the festival.

 

Find Your Level 

 

There are four direct buy-in levels for Powerfest events which are easy to remember. 

 

  • Micro - the smallest buy-in of all, you can win big for a buy-in that costs less than a tube of toothpaste. A title win in any of these tournaments is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear. 
  • Low - highly affordable, these are popular with players of all levels, but particularly recreational players. If you've always wondered what Powerfest is all about load up a Low entry tournament and find out for very little outlay. 
  • Mid - a tournament win in a Mid-level Powerfest VIII event will be sure to buy you something nice and sparkly, whether it's the latest gadget you want or something a little more bling to hang off a limb. 
  • High - prove your poker skills at the highest level by taking down one of these big boys. Higher buy-ins, of course, but much high rewards. You can, of course, satellite your way into these tournaments for a fraction of the entry fee.

Mix it Up 

 

As well as a raft of buy-ins to suit any sized pocket, there are a number of different formats of poker you can play.  These include:

 

  • No Limit Hold’em - the classic format and most popular format in the world. Can you prove your class in the version of the game everyone loves most?
  • Pot Limit Omaha - Wrap up your tournaments in style by adding in the most exciting format for many players. Anyone who loves to gamble and enjoy big swings more than a pre-schooler on their first trip to the playground will love PLO or PLO8, which also features. 
  • Progressive Knock Out - every time you bust someone, you receive part of their bounty value, with the other part being added to your own bounty. As you progress through the tournament, the action only gets more and more exciting! 

 

A Schedule For Champions 

 

With 17 championship events, and an incredible $27 million up for grabs to high rollers and super high rollers alone, there are obviously going to be some big fish swimming in the Powerfest VIII pond.  With 58 events having buy-ins between $530 and a whopping $25,500, headlines are going to be made with the turn of a virtual card.  

 

The $25,500 Super High Roller event in particular has already made waves across the poker industry. With a guarantee of $5 million, 200 players will be needed to reach that mark. Our previous Super High Roller had a guarantee of 'only' $3,000,000 and 129 players, so the biggest tournament of Powerfest VIII is ambitious to say the least. Our partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard can explain exactly why we've put together this Powerfest VIII schedule:

 

 

“I've been more heavily involved in this Powerfest scheduling than ever before," says Leonard (pictured above with partypoker's Joao Simao).

 

"There is a lot of consistent logic throughout giving the most varied, exciting and fun Powerfest schedule since partypoker’s resurrection a few years ago. There are more 6-Max events, more PLO, more high rollers but also buy-ins for all bankrolls and most importantly lots of chances of glory. I don't think I'll take a day off over the two weeks.”
