The latest newsletter touched on a number of topics such as the upcoming POWERFEST series, special SPINS games, and the kick off of partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Season 3.


POWERFEST will run from March 31 to April 14 and guarantee $30 million in tournament prize money. Buy-ins and game formats are sure to appeal to all bankroll sizes. A full schedule will be released soon.

Special SPINS

The Monster Series will conclude this weekend but there's still time to win tickets to the festival valued between $2.20 and $55 by playing SPINS games that cost only $0.50 to enter. SPINS is extremely popular at partypoker and there's always room for more players to participate.

Software Update

A recent software update at the Windows client allows players in Spain and France to get up to speed with players. Among the improvements were the tournament lobby, the player notes function, player plates, and felts and floors that can be customized.

Another Staples for Team Online

Popular Twitch streamer Jaime Staples said good-bye to PokerStars and signed on with partypoker Team Online effective May 4. Staples has more than 120,000 followers on the streaming platform and has cashed for almost $1 million online.

Jaime joins the likes of Jeff Gross, Courtney Gee, and his brother Matt as part of partypoker's strategy to bring quality poker content to Twitchland. Look for high stakes cash games to be included in that new strategy.

DCE Rake Race

HighstakesDB has covered the Diamond Club Elite rake race between "sp0ubledy", "SunnyBooy" and "arianaGrande7" exclusively. All three players are grinding SPINS like crazy in order to be first to reach $200,000 in rake and receive 100% cashback for a year and other juicy rewards.

DCE status is similar to the Supernova Elite tier attached to a different poker room in days gone by. Who will be first to reach the milestone and make online poker history? Stay tuned.

Live Crushers

While "sp0ubledy" and the others have been hitting the virtual felt, partypoker ambassadors Jason Koon and Timofey Kuznetsov have been crushing live action in Jeju, South Korea at the Triton Super High Roller Series. Koon won two tournaments for a combined total of $3.8 million, while Kuznetsov bagged one Short Deck title for $1,859,940.


The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Season 3 begins at the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro on March 15 and runs thru the 24th. On the schedule are 14 core events including the $10,000 buy-in Main Event with a $5,000,000 guarantee.

Player Panel

During the tour stop in Rio on March 18, none other than Phil Hellmuth will speak at a free seminar where the Poker Brat will divulge the secrets to his success. Five days later, partypoker Player Panel members Patrick Leonard and Joao Simao will host an open forum and take questions from the audience.

The Player Panel was formed at partypoker about two months ago and is designed to bridge the gap between the poker site and players by facilitating open communication on various topics and concerns. Other members include Fedor Holz, Ike Haxton, Sam Trickett, Jason Koon, and partypoker chairman, Mike Sexton.
