Three weeks, 198 events, $10 Million guaranteed – the facts about the Partypoker Powerfest are impressive to read. And gladly, the Powerfest is not only interesting for experienced poker players. You can take part in the Powerfest with buy-ins starting at $5,50 and thereby play in one of the 198 tournaments. This time, Party Poker even added a “Mini” edition upfront (1st – 4th September) with buy-ins of $2.20 or less. To Partypoker Group Head Tom Waters “This is poker for the people no matter the size of your bankroll.”
Since the prizepools and buy-ins are going to rise from week to week, the first week will probably be the most interesting one for beginners. From September 4th until September 11th 2016, the Powerfest starts off with the featherweight and buy-ins from $5,50 up to $11. Though the buy-in for the main event on Sunday, September 11th, 2016 is only $11, the tournament has a guaranteed prizepool of $40.000. Those who participate in four or more tournaments during the first week will automatically get a tournament ticket for the following week.
What’s especially interesting for fans of mobile poker: You can also use your smartphone or tablet to take part in the Powerfest, since all tournaments are also available in the Partypoker App.
The Powerfest middleweight, with buy-ins from $22 to $55, will take place in the frist week as well this time. The middleweight’s main event is on September 11, offering a guaranteed prizepool of $100.000.

How to get a $530 tournament ticket for free
Earlier this year, you were able to get a ticket that enables you to take part in the tournament in the following week after having participated in Powerfest tournaments at least four times (that week). To us that sounds like a pretty good deal, since a ticket for week four is worth at least $530 – that makes an amazing bonus. During the last two weeks, Partypoker is also going to offer sattelites so that you can qualify for the tournament series with smaller stakes. We’ll keep you posted if that deal is valid in September as well.
