Party Poker will kick start the third edition of its immensely popular annual online poker event Pokerfest on April 21, which happens to be a Sunday. Pokerfest III will have a total of 64 online poker events, spread over a period of two weeks. Throughout these two weeks, Party Poker players can take part in exciting FLH and PLO events; and if they are lucky, they can win their share of a guaranteed prize pool of $4 million.
The highlights of Party Poker’s Pokerfest III event will be a number of speed poker events, a heads-up tournament, a $350k guaranteed tournament on Sundays, and the $1.5 Million Guaranteed Main Event, which will be played on May 5, Sunday. The online poker room will run four events daily on week days and six events on Sundays, with each event having buy-ins to suit different bankrolls. Poker players can buy-in for as little as $0.50, and if they do not have 50 cents, they can use their Party Points to buy-in to some of the events. The Pokerfest III schedule is now available on the Party Poker website.
Party Poker has also reminded its customers that they still have a chance to qualify for the World Poker Tour (WPT) Canadian Spring Championship, which will be played in Montreal’s Playground Poker Club from May 3 to May 9. The event will include a main event with a buy-in of CAD3300. Poker players still have the opportunity to win a prize package worth US$6500 to this event if only they take part in the $325+$25 qualifier satellite scheduled to be held at 15:20 ET on Sunday.
Party Poker enjoys a great deal of popularity for its player friendly promotions. The online poker room is ideal for those new to the game because it runs a number of daily freerolls, giving players several opportunities to sharpen their poker skills and build their bankrolls. Players can grab their share of more than $20,000 every week playing freerolls alone.
Party Poker runs a No Limit Hold’em $1.5k New Player freeroll on Saturdays at 14:00 ET. Players who would like to take part must visit the tournament lobby and hit the Freerolls tab, after which they have to hit the $1.5k New Player Freeroll and then the Register button. Players have to hurry because the software will register them on a first-come-first-served basis. As many as 5000 players can take part in one freeroll.
