Pokerfest 2011 at PartyPoker
Saturday 1st October 2011
PartyPoker has thrown open its doors to anyone who wants to participate in its first ever Pokerfest online poker festival by launching a plethora of attractive qualifiers. The Pokerfest itself will run from Sunday 23 October to Sunday 6 November and offer a total of $3,000,000 in guaranteed prize money. That prize money will be distributed between 47 different events, including a Main Event which guarantees a cool $1,000,000.
Whilst players will be able to buy into Pokerfest events directly, the newly launched qualifiers give players the chance to win themselves seats for a fraction of the cost.
With 47 different events scheduled for Pokerfest 2011 we can’t possibly go over them all here, but the good news is that we don’t have to – you can view the complete schedule at the PartyPoker website. Here are details of a few of the big-money highlights to whet your appetite:
- The Pokerfest event will start with a $300,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em event on Sunday 23 October at 13:30 ET. The direct buy-in for this game is $215.
- A $25,000 Guaranteed Pot Limit Omaha game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 25 October at 15:00 ET. The direct buy-in is $109.
- On Thursday 27 October at 15:00 ET you can participate in a $25,000 Fixed Limit Hold’em game. The direct buy-in is $109.
- A $350,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em game will take place on Sunday 30 October at 13:30 ET. The direct buy-in is $215.
- The cherry on the Pokerfest 2011 cake is the $1,000,000 Guaranteed Main Event. This takes place on Sunday 6 November at 13:30 ET and the direct buy-in is $640.
Although some players who have the bankrolls to allow it will choose to buy-in directly to the tournaments they are most interested in, many more will choose to try and win themselves a seat in the big-money games by participating in qualifiers. As we said at the top of this news item, qualifiers are now running at PartyPoker and with buy-ins to these starting at just $1 (yes, a single, solitary dollar) the Pokerfest excitement is something that everyone can look forward to.
