Play For a Share of $500,000 on May 11

Every Sunday, partypoker runs its flagship tournament that boasts a massive guaranteed prize pool of $200,000. It is one of the biggest and best tournaments in the online poker world. But on Sunday 11 May, the $200,000 Guaranteed is going to be put in the shade by a special partypoker tournament with a guarantee so large we can hardly believe it!

At 2:00pm ET (8:00pm CET) on Sunday 11 May, partypoker is hosting a $200 buy-in tournament that has, wait for it, a staggering $500,000 guarantee slapped on its prize pool! That’s right, half a million dollars! At least $100,000 is reserved for the tournament’s champion, how amazing is that?

The easiest way to get involved in this massive tournament is to buy in directly for $200 (buying in direct also banks you a $500 bonus on top of any winnings you may secure), but partypoker realise that not everyone has $200 to spend on a single tournament so is running qualifiers and satellites around the clock that cost a fraction of the $200 cost of entering the $500,000 guaranteed event.

New players who make their first deposit at partypoker will receive five $1 qualifier tickets that can be used on any $500k Guaranteed qualifier, meaning they could be playing for that $100,000 first place prize for free!

Another great way to get in on the action is to enter the $5 Mega Satellite that has 100 seats guaranteed! This special mega satellite takes place at 10:30 ET (4:30pm CET) on Sunday 11 May and could be your best chance to qualify for the $500,000 Guaranteed cheaply.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to play for a share of $500,000. Buy in today or try your luck at the many satellites feeding into the Sunday 11 May edition of the $500,000 Guaranteed.

In poker, under the gun is one of the worst positions to be sat in, but there is nothing bad about the partypoker promotion bearing the same name. In fact, the partypoker Under The Gun promotion is quite fantastic!

Partypoker first launched in 2001 and at one time was the leader in online poker. Partypoker is still one of the largest online poker sites in the world and their software has been downloaded more than 30 million times.

In March 2011, PartyGaming and sports betting giant bwin merged to create bwin.party Digital Entertainment, the world’s largest publically listed gaming company.

In September 2013, partypoker launched new social networking poker software that incorporates a number of features designed to attract new and casual players including player achievements and the ability to easily see what partypoker friends have recently been up to.

Limits and Rake

Partypoker has removed most of their high limit games. For no limit cash games, the limits range from $0.01/$0.02 up to $5/$10. Limit cash games are available from $0.02/$0.04 to $30/$60. Partypoker only offers the 2 most popular poker variants with Hold’em and Omaha varieties.

Partypoker features tournaments for both the professional and casual player with buy-ins ranging from $0.50 to $700. They also have a weekly $215 buyin $200K Guaranteed tournament every Sunday which is softer than most major tournaments on other poker sites. For players just starting their bankroll, they offer frequent freeroll tournaments and tournaments that can be entered with frequent player points.

Rake is only paid on partypoker if a flop is seen and is generally set at 5% with a max $3 cap. Partypoker charges a reasonable tournament fee ranging from 7.7% to 11.1% of the tournament buy-in.

Player Traffic

partypoker regularly has more than 10,000 players online at once at peak times, with just under 3,400 of them playing real money cash games. During peak hours, there will be games available at just about any stakes partypoker is offering.

Partypoker has taken steps to prevent professional players from taking advantage of their growing recreational player base including removing high stakes cash games, segregating players with a high win rate, offering anonymous tables which prevent the use of 3rd party HUDs, and removing the highest tier of their rewards program.


Partypoker is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Players can also download a mobile application on their Android and iOS devices or even play via a web browser.

The partypoker lobby contains a variety of filters making it simple & intuitive for players to find the game they are looking for. It is simple to multi-table on partypoker since the software makes it easy to quickly find games along with having the ability to resize their tables.

partypoker is also the home to FastForward poker, a variant of "fast-fold" poker where players no longer have to wait long periods for playable hands, and can play upwards of 120-200 hands per hour per table!

Software and Extra Features

The partypoker software is one of the best in the business and it's no wonder than tens of thousands of players use it each and every day. Some of the features include:

  • 1-Click Lobby: Allows quick access to favorite games.
  • Missions: Fun to achieve rewards including cash, tournament tickets, and bonuses for completing special partypoker missions.
  • Achievements: Ability to reach up to 120 achievements and brag to partypoker friends.
  • Friends and Profile page: Easy to search and add new friends. partypoker also automatically suggests potential friends based on achievements and missions completed as well as games and stakes played.
  • FastForward: A fast paced cash game where when players fold or end their hand they are quickly brought to a new table of different players playing at the same limits.
  • Security: Login security token available to keep player balances safe.

Customer Service

As one of the top poker outfits, partypoker delivers 24-hour online support through its large team. The Support Centre agents offer free phone support, email support, live chat, and an extensive Q&A database on the Partypoker site.
