Partypoker Power Series poker tournaments

In November, Partypoker changed its poker tournament schedule when it launched the Power Series, which happened at the same time that they announced that four-time world champion boxer Carl Froch would be their new ambassador. These events are set to bring their players more than $1.6 million in guaranteed prize money each month.

There are now at least 17 new tournaments that are now on the schedule, with low buy-in from $5.50 up to $109, with guaranteed prize pools from $500 to $10,000. They have split the different tournaments into three categories based on the buy-in:

  • Featherweight: $2.20 – $11 (100 tournaments) $152,500 Guaranteed
  • Middleweight: $22 – $55 (121 tournaments) $470,000 Guaranteed
  • Heavyweight: $109 (36 tournaments) $735,000 Guaranteed

There are a total of 257 tournaments lined up, with over $1.3 million guaranteed. The Featherweight and Middleweight tournaments run every two hours, giving players the opportunity to win a lot of money without breaking their wallet. Some of the guarantees in the Power Series are getting a big bump:

Tournament Buy-In Previous Prize New Prize
The Jab $5.50 $5,0000 $10,000
$530 High Roller $530 $50,000 $100,0000
$109 Weigh-In $109 $25,000 $50,000
$109 Uppercut $109 $25,000 $50,000

These tournaments would be included in the Christmas lineup, along with the Gladiator and Winter Winners. These new guarantees run through December, but will not be available on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve; as these are the days with the least traffic. This is just another great example of the big online poker sites giving back to their loyal players, especially during the holiday seasons.
