Party Poker Offering Huge Prizes at Pokerfest II

Posted on by Kevin Mace

Pokerfest IIParty Poker’s wonderful online Pokerfest II kicks off this coming Sunday – with the 47 events that will be staged until Sunday, May 6, offering a minimum of $3.5 million in prizes and a main event that promises no less than $1 million.

Of course there will be numerous side events running until the conclusion of the series alongside the announced schedule, so you can see that Party Poker have provided tournaments for almost everyone interested in the world’s greatest game.

The first tournament on the schedule – following on from the success of Pokerfest I last October – is Sunday’s $215 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event that guarantees at least $350,000 in prizes and starts at 13:30 ET (Eastern Time Zone), while the $600+$40 buy-in main event also starts at 13:30 ET on May 6 and will see players share a minimum of $1 million in prizes. Satellites starting at just $1 are available to gain access to this festival-closing tournament.

$1 Side Events With ‘A Twist’

Pokerfest II will also run two side events, priced at $1, every day of the festival at 13:45 and 16:00 ET. What makes them interesting is Party Poker have stated that these events will feature “a twist”.

What that ‘twist’ will be is anyone’s guess, but all will be revealed in the poker room’s tournament lobby, although entrants to these small buy-in events can expect to see distinctive structures as well as added prizes.

Meanwhile, three other No-Limit Hold’em events also take place on the opening day of the festival – and they are a 20 PartyPoints buy-in event at 14:00 ET that guarantees $2,500, a £22 buy-in competition at 14:30 ET that will have a minimum of $35,000 in prizes, and a $530 buy-in tournament at 15:00 ET that has a $250,000 guarantee.

Pokerfest II Now ‘Even Bigger’

The original Pokerfest was considered such a success by Party Poker that “the only way to bring it back was by making it even bigger – and that’s exactly what we’ve done, adding $500,000 to the prize pool as well as an irresistible $14,000 WSOP (World Series of Poker) 2012 package”.

You can secure one of those incredible packages by winning one of the five jackpots that are on offer. But for this top prize, as well as $20,000 in cash, you’ll have to win three Pokerfest II events.

Pokerfest II also features buy-ins for all bankrolls, starting at only five PartyPoints for those signed up to the poker room, while three leaderboards – for points, low stakes and high stakes – will see players share $50,000. That’s not all, though, as the series’ jackpots will also offer WSOP 2012 packages and iPads.

The leaderboards, meanwhile, have been set at points, low ($6 to $33 buy-ins) and high ($55 buy-ins and above) for events that pay between 250 and 500 places. Prizes of as much as $2,500 can be won from a $50,000 total pool.

The Pokerfest II Jackpots are as follows:

  • Win three Pokerfest II events to earn $20,000 and a 2012 WSOP main event package worth $14,000
  • Make the final table of 10 Pokerfest II events to earn $15,000 and an iPad 3
  • Make the final table of five Pokerfest II events to earn $7,500 and an iPad 3
  • Make the money in 20 Pokerfest II events to earn $5,000 and an iPad 3
  • Make the money in 10 Pokerfest II events to earn $2,500 and an iPad 3

Weekday Events Still Value For Money

Now, if you are already signed up to Party Poker, you’ll know that Sundays are the greatest days for online grinding – but that doesn’t mean weekdays can’t be profitable, too, with the poker room’s fabulous $30,000 guaranteed events running from Monday to Thursday.

Each of these $99 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournaments kick off at 15:00 ET, with players able to enjoy one rebuy and another add-on once the break has arrived. If you can’t quite manage the $99 buy-in, never fear as there are numerous satellites also running during each day that cost only 10 PartyPoints to take a virtual seat.

Party Poker’s generosity doesn’t end there, though, as they also supply poker players with $100,000 in freerolls each and every month.

However, if you are just about to sign up for an account with Party Poker, you will also be able to enter the weekly freeroll that is run just for players that have joined during the previous seven days.

That freeroll guarantees a prize pool of $1,500, while the field is restricted to just 5,000 competitors – so ensuring that new account customers will have a wonderful opportunity to make some quick cash.

$150 Freerolls Staged Every Day at Party Poker

Also, don’t forget that every day sees $150 freerolls staged for players throughout the world from 07:30 until 19:30 ET. These events are, of course, limited to particular nations, so once again giving players a better chance of cashing from the smaller fields.
