Team partypoker Founding Father Mike Sexton said: “This is poker for people with any kind of bankroll. We kick off on Thursday 16th January with two events with buy-ins of just $1 and $2. On Friday 17th January PLO enters the schedule and it continues to be fast and furious all the way from there on with missions and a leaderboard all the way through to the final days’ events. The showpiece grand finale is the $10 buy-in $10,000 guaranteed Deepstack Turbo Main Event on Sunday 2nd February (event 49) at 2pm, the perfect way to warm-up for the first Superbowl in New Jersey!”
Team partypoker’s Scott Baumstein is another player looking forward to the festival. “I’m spending most of late January grinding live at the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open – if I bust a live event I can play online and Pokerfest is ideal as it offers a great variety of games and I don’t have to commit too much time because of the turbo format.”
