‘Micro Turbo’ Series with $50K Guarantee Set to Begin on partypoker


After the first full month of legal online poker in New Jersey, partypoker and Borgata Poker are the clear early frontrunners in the state, thanks to tournament offerings like the upcoming ‘Pokerfest: Micro Turbo Edition’.

partypoker set the bar high with big guarantees from the beginning and hit them – including their $50,000 Guarantee that’s easily been cleared in the last few weeks. While that’s good news for the high-stakes players, the attention will now turn to the micro-stakes tournament players in New Jersey over the next 18 days.

The ‘Pokerfest: Micro Turbo Edition’, which starts at 7:30 pm Thursday night with a $1 No Limit Hold’em event. The buy-ins start at just 5 partypoker points, and over the next two-and-a-half weeks a total of 50 such tournaments will run up to five times a day.

It culminates on February 2 with a $10, $10,000 Guaranteed Deepstack Turbo No Limit Hold’em event at 2 pm. That also happens to be Super Bowl Sunday, with the tournament ending before the game begins.

In addition to the $50,000 in guarantees over those 50 tournaments, there’s one other big prize at stake. Whomever ends the series on top of the Pokerfest leaderboard will win a $5,000 WPT Package in addition to any other money they’ve won.

The ‘Pokerfest: Micro Turbo Edition’ will feature a wide variety of games, including Pot Limit Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud and bounty events.

These tournaments will run in addition to partypoker’s regular schedule, which includes more than $120,000 in guarantees every Sunday.
