GPPT Online, Pokerfest Kick off at PartyPoker

May 1 was a big day promotions-wise at PartyPoker because it has marked the beginning of two of the site's most attractive and most hyped promotions, the $300k GPPT Online and the Pokerfest. The GPPT online runs over 9 days and it features a prize-pool of $300k. Every single day, between May 1 and May 9, there are three Day 1s. On the last promotional day, there's a Day 2 too, which decides the eventual winners. Day 1s go like this: players play for sixteen 12-minute levels, at the end of which, if they still have chips, they qualify for Day 2. Every one of the Day 1s features a Freezout format, but players are allowed to play in as many Day 1s as they wish. In the end, their biggest Day 1 stack will be considered towards their Day 2 qualification.
Sign up to PartyPoker right now and take full advantage of their May promotional Frenzy. Get your share of $300k through the GPPT!

The first ever GPPT featured a slightly smaller guarantee, which tipped the scale at $250k. The eventual winner then bested a field of 2,446 players, to pick up the $35k reward.
In addition to the GPPT, the Pokerfest has kicked off at PartyPoker too, featuring a total prize-pool of $7.8 million. Like its previous incarnations, this month's Pokerfest is split up into 4 categories too. The first one, the Featherweight, is what has started on Sunday. The Featherweight is quite possibly the most interesting stage of the promotion for recreational players, because it features small buy-ins, yet none of the guarantees it hands out is less than $5k. The first promotional day is already in the books and it featured several $5k prize-pools as well as a $10k and a $25k one.
PartyPoker is one of the best online poker destinations for recreational players. Register an account now and make good money in the Featherweight!
