Partypoker’s Powerfest returns to the calendar this month with new poker variants gracing a more streamlined schedule and a total guaranteed prize pool of $15 million spread over 147 events.
Compared to the series in January 2017, 2018’s first Powerfest certainly appears ambitious. Total guarantees are up 36% and split over fewer events, meaning the average guarantee per tournament has more than doubled from $49,000 last year to over $102,000 this time around.
However, looking at the most recent Powerfest, the schedule might appear at first glance as a little lackluster. Last September’s series was the biggest ever hosted by the operator with $35 million over a whopping 330 events.
