Party Poker Starts Countdown for Pokerfest Online

Posted on by Roy Smith

PokerfestParty Poker is gearing up for the fall edition of Pokerfest Online, with eighty events scheduled over fifteen days guaranteeing $2.5 million in prize money.

There is a massive treat in store for players at Party Poker this fall as the site hosts one its biggest events of the year – Pokerfest Online. Between Sunday 27th September and Sunday 11th October, Party Poker will be running eighty tournaments with buy-ins to suit all bankrolls and total guaranteed prize pools of $2.5 million.

The series is complimented by an extensive satellite schedule, the opportunity to qualify for Pokerfest events through special “Pokerfest Missions” and – for players that intend to compete in multiple events – discounted buy-in bundles. There will also be several mega-satellites to qualify hundreds of players into the most valuable events.

The Highlights of Pokerfest Online

Players do not have to wait very long for the highlights of PokerFest Online, as Day 1 of the series kicks off with twelve events offering more than $½ million in prize money. The pick of the Day 1 events are the $250,000 guaranteed re-entry tournament (Event #7) and the $150,000 guaranteed high roller (Event #10), but players with more modest bankrolls might find some value in the $10,000 guaranteed hyper re-buy and add-on tournament (Event #5) that has the buy-in of just $5.00.

Three or four events are scheduled for each of the following weekdays – including a $20,000 guaranteed bounty tournament on Thursday 1st October – with the first full weekend of the series having sixteen events and three mega-satellites for players to stick their teeth into. Thursday 8th October is PL Omaha day, before the series reaches its crescendo on the final weekend of the series with eighteen events and three more mega-satellites to keep players glued to their computer screens.

The Main Event of the series (Event #73) is a $250.00 buy-in re-entry NL Texas Hold´em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. The event takes place on Sunday 11th October at 2:00pm (BST), and players who fancy a little extra value from the tournament should set their alarm clocks for the $20.00 mega-satellite that is scheduled for 10:30am (BST) and which guarantees a minimum of fifty seats to the target event.

Plenty of Other Opportunities to Qualify on the Cheap

Party Poker is already running satellites for events in Pokerfest Online. However, unlike many other tournaments series in which players qualify for a specific event, Party Poker is running satellites in which the reward is a token to any event of a certain value ($10.00, $20.00, $50.00 etc.). The satellite qualifiers are running around the clock at Party Poker and have buy-ins starting from just $0.50.

In addition to plenty of satellite routes, Party Poker is also offering players the opportunity to win seats in Pokerfest qualifiers and events by completing special “Pokerfest Missions”. The missions for PokerFest Online are relatively simple and require players to play in a specific number of qualifiers or events to qualify for tournament tokens. The more qualifiers or events you play in, the higher reward you receive – it is as simple as that!

Also on the table during the run-up to the start of Pokerfest Online is the opportunity for players to exchange their existing Party Points for discounted “bundles” of tournament entries. For example, players with 6,600 Party Points can exchange them for entry into all of the events scheduled for Sunday 27th September (equivalent to a discount of 35% on the cost of buying into each event separately). Players also have the option of exchanging their existing Party Points for all of the tournaments with a buy-in of a certain value (i.e. $10.00) or for seats in all of the mega-satellites. The ultimate exchange (if you have 41,000 Party Points) is to buy a bundle for all eight Pokerfest online events at a 40% discount.
