Powerfest XI: three millionaires in two weeks
The history of the "Powerfest" brand began in 2016, when partypoker, after a change of ownership, announced that they would pursue the highest spots in the online poker ranking. And a major tournament series was really necessary for this:
- The first series took place in May 2016 and had a "modest" guarantee of $5 million. It was the only edition held that year;
- In the next two years, partypoker has hosted a total of seven Powerfest. The largest of them was May and September 2019 — 40 and 60 million guaranteed, respectively. Each series had more than 350 events;
- In 2019, two roughly identical festivals were held with 30 and 28 million dollars guaranteed, 255 and 275 events, respectively.
Moreover, the latest Powerfest was played at a crucial time for partypoker: the HUD prohibition.
The first 2020 edition came with some changes:
Powerfest XI will be held from March 15 to 29. For 15 days, 145 events will be played with a massive guaranteed prize pool of $20,000,000.
Thirty tournaments will be played in PLO, and all others will be played in different formats of Hold'em (8-max, 6-max, rebuy, freezeout, PKO, PKO battle).
The average guarantee will be almost $138,000, which is $35,000 more compared to the last Powerfest held in 2019.
