Pokerfest Micro Turbo Series Gets Underway On Party Poker NJ

Party Poker’s New Jersey poker site has begun hosting the Pokerfest Micro Turbo Series, an 18-day event consisting of 50 exclusive low buy-in events aimed at micro stakes players. With buy-ins ranging from $0.50 all the way up to $10 for the main event, making it super affordable for every tournament player in the Garden State.

As the name of this tournament series implies, a lot of the events will be played in the turbo format, so it’s best to show up in time if you’ve registered in one of the events. Also, every tournament will feature a guaranteed prizepool. This will be welcome news to many online players in New Jersey as many of the guaranteed tourneys hosted on New Jersey poker sites are failing to hit their guarantees.

Furthermore, the Pokerfest Micro Turbo Series caters to all poker playing enthusiasts, not just hold’em lovers, with the schedule featuring Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo tournaments for players to choose from. There will also be a number of different tournament formats including bounty, deepstack, ante, turbo, and rebuy events, so there is enough variety to please everyone.

The Pokerfest tournament series has already gotten underway and will draw to a conclusion when the Main Event crowns a champion on Feb 2nd. The $10 buy-in Pokerfest Micro Turbo Series Main Event will have a guaranteed prizepool of $10,000. In addition to buying into the main event with their own money, players can gain entry into the tourney for just $2 via satellites that will be hosted the same day of the event.

If there wasn’t already a good enough reason to participate in the first Pokerfest Micro Turbo Series being held at to make playing in the series just that much more interesting, there will be a leaderboard and the top player will be awarded with the Player of the Series Award, and will win a World Poker Tour package worth $5,000, allowing them to enter any WPT in 2014 of their choosing. There will also be cash prizes ranging from $250 to $500 which go to the other 9 players at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the series.

Additionally, players who are participating in the Pokerfest series over the next couple of weeks will be given the option to complete exclusive missions (Easy, Regular, and Hard difficulty level missions are available to take on) and receive special rewards for your efforts in completing one of them. This creates phenomenal value for players thinking of giving Pokerfest a try for the first time.

Party Poker is excited about bringing Pokerfest to players in New Jersey, and this is what Mike Sexton, who is who is the founding father of Team Partypoker, had to say in a press release:

“This is poker for people with any kind of bankroll.”

He ended the press release by saying “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!”

So, the beginning of February will obviously be actioned packed for poker and NFL fans in NJ!
