The full schedule of POWERFEST X has now been released and the festival has something for everybody in terms of buy-ins and formats. Entry fees that range from Low to Super High Roller cover all budget sizes, while new and standard formats that include PLO, PLO8, 6-4 Mix-Max, Big Antes and Battle PKOs are sure to please the masses.

“I am really excited that POWERFEST is coming back round again," stated Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard . "The series is always a standout highlight on the online poker calendar and one I make space in my diary for."

Championship Events

While Leonard has cleared 15 days on his calendar, he has likely placed an asterisk on the final day of August 11 when eight Championship events with buy-ins from $11 to $2,100 will be hosted. Along with huge prize pool guarantees that equal $1.8 million combined, the Championship events award trophies to all the winners.

Four of the eight Championship tournaments are scheduled as Progressive Knockout NLHE, while the other four are Pot Limit Omaha. In fact, the entire POWERFEST X is heavy on PLO action with over $1.9 million in guaranteed prize money.

Here's the Championship events schedule on August 11:

Time (GMT) Event, GTD, & Format Buy-in
19:00 #74-HR: $750,000 [PKO] $2,100
19:00 #74-H: $500,000 [PKO] $320
19:00 #74-M: $150,000 [PKO] $55
19:00 #74-L: $50,000 [PKO] $11
19:30 #75-HR: $250,000 [PLO] $2,100
19:30 #75-H: $100,000 [PLO] $320
19:30 #75-M: $25,000 [PLO] $55
19:30 #75-L: $10,000 [PLO] $11

Buying in to the Championship events can be done directly, however, a special Satellite Week will run just prior to POWERFEST from July 21-27. Players can win entries to POWERFEST events for as low as $0.55 via satellites.

Or how about winning POWERFEST tickets or satellite and feeder tickets for free during special freerolls such as a $10,000 freeroll that kicks off Satellite Week on July 21. There will also be daily $1,000 freerolls throughout Satellite Week.

Special Edition SPINS

There's even more ways to win POWERFEST tickets via special edition $5 SPINS games that are already underway. The action-packed, hyper-turbo, three-handed Sit & Go SPINS games can put you in a POWERFEST seat that's worth up to $1,050.

Here's the $5 POWERFEST SPINS game payouts, including multiplier and frequency of random prize pools:

Multiplier Frequency in 1M Games 1st Prize
2 754,285 $10 Cash
4.4 187,015 $22 Ticket
6.6 54,540 $33 Ticket
11 3,000 $55 Ticket
21.8 1,000 $109 Ticket
64 100 $320 Ticket
106 50 $530 Ticket
210 10 $1,050 Ticket

Keep your eye on the POWERFEST tickets worth $320, as there are 16 POWERFEST events that feature big time prize pools with a $320 buy-in. The guarantees run from $75,000 to $500,000, with at least $2.6 million set to be paid out over the 16 events.

“With a host of promotions lined up to give players the chance to join the action for less, the 10th edition promises to be extra special," Patrick Leonard added.
