Partypoker hosts UK charity tournament this week

Partypoker will be hosting the UK NHS Charity Tournament on April 16. At least 50% of the prize pool will be matched by the site and donated to NHS Charities Together. The umbrella organization represents more than 140 NHS charities.

These charities contribute £1 million a day to support the work of the NHS. The tournament will be available to players based in the UK.

Partypoker won’t take a tournament fee for the £50 buy-in event. There will be unlimited re-entries allowed for the first 12 levels. The remaining prize pool will be paid out per the standard tournament payout structure.

“We are delighted to play our part in helping the poker community support the NHS and contribute to the national effort in combating COVID-19,” partypoker managing director Tom Waters said.

“Poker players have a long and proud history of coming together to support charitable causes. At this moment, that support has never been more needed.”

Grand Prix 4 Dealers benefit kicks off April 26

With no live poker currently, many dealers are out of work. Partypoker is offering a new tournament series to support at least some in the poker dealing community.

The Grand Prix 4 Dealers runs on partypoker from April 26 to May 3. As part of the event, 100% of registration fees go directly to dealers who were booked to work at partypoker LIVE events that have been postponed or moved online. This includes partner and sponsored events in the Triton, WPT, and WSOP circuits.

“These are exceptional times and many freelancers and self-employed, in all industries, have got some tough months ahead,” partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said.

“Freelance poker dealers are no exception and hopefully our Grand Prix 4 Dealers tournament along with other initiatives may help. Come and play and know that you’re doing your bit to help the poker community.”

Partypoker officials hope to raise $100,000 in the effort. If the target is met, Dusk Til Dawn Poker Club owner Rob Yong will match the total.

The tournament buy-in is $55 and starting flights will run everyday for the first eight days. Qualifying players will advance to the final day on May 3. Satellites are running from just $2.20. Partypoker has also begun a JustGiving page to help in the cause.

Massive POWERFEST events roll on

The POWERFEST has been extended by partypoker through April 20. The series features more than $60 million in tournament guarantees.

Events start for as little as $1 but also feature higher buy-in events as well. There are numerous events each day. Here’s a look at some of the action this week and an example of what daily events to expect.
