Party Poker´s PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition Starts Next Week

Party Poker´s PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition Starts Next WeekA slimline version of Party Poker´s PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition starts next Friday, with 42 events over 10 days and a total guaranteed prize pool of $115,000.

The second Party Poker PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition might be a shadow of the inaugural series (which had 50% more events and twice as much guaranteed prize money), but it still represents a great tournament series for players with a limited bankroll.

The 42 events come in a selection of disciplines, with buys-ins for all but two of the tournaments ranging between $1.00 and $5.00. All the tournaments are played with a turbo or hyper-turbo clock, so there is sure to be plenty of fast-paced action at the tables.

High Roller and Main Event are Feature Attractions

The two events with buy-ins above $5.00 are the High Roller and Main Event. The High Roller takes place on Sunday 25th May (16:45pm ET) and offers a $15,000 guarantee for the $50.00 buy-in. A few hours before the tournament gets underway, Party Poker will be hosting a mega-satellite ($5.00 buy-in) with 50 seats guaranteed for the High Roller, so it looks as though this will be the highlight event of the first weekend.

The cards will be in the air for the $25,000 guaranteed PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition Main Event at 14:00pm (ET) on Sunday 1st June. This tournament has a buy-in of just $20.00, and players looking for additional value in the PokerFest Micro Turbo series should note that a $5.00 buy-in mega-satellite will be hosted three hours earlier which guarantees an incredible 200 seats into the Main Event.

The full schedule for Party Poker´s PokerFest Micro Turbo Edition can be found on the Party Poker blog.
