The Featherweights and Middleweights have had their turn at Partypoker’s Powerfest series. This weekend is dedicated to players in the Heavyweight class, those who can tip the scales with buy-ins of $109-$215.

There are six Heavyweight events this Saturday and Sunday, five with $109 entry fees featuring prize pool guarantees ranging from $25,000-$100,000. Headlining the Powerfest Heavyweight weekend on Sunday, March 13 is the Main Event with a $215 buy-in and a $500,000 GTD prize pool.

Are you ready to step up in class and take on some Heavyweight players? If so, head on over to Partypoker and grab $20 free when you sign up and make that first deposit.

Live the Game

888poker’s Live the Game promo continues this weekend with special free tournaments on both Saturday and Sunday for depositors, both first-timers and existing players who take advantage of a deposit offer. The deposit can be as low as $10 and will put you in a seat at up to five tournaments.

Your deposit allows you to choose between 5 tickets to the $2,000 Smooth Call Free Tournaments, 2 tickets to the $5,000 Raise the Stakes Free Tournaments, or 1 ticket to the $10,000 Action Hero Free Tournament. You can’t go wrong with any of those choices, but you can go wrong by not depositing.


This looks to be the last FTOPS ever played at Full Tilt since a merger with PokerStars‘ player pool will commence on April 1. This weekend will close out FTOPS XXIX with two events on Saturday and two more on Sunday including the $500 buy-in $250,000 GTD Main Event.

Players who recall Full Tilt’s glory days may want to make a deposit and play in FTOPS for the last time. Any money won will be transferred to your PokerStars account next month. Wouldn’t it be awesome to cash or win in the final Full Tilt Online Poker Series? Last call.

Six Plus Festival

Select skins on the iPoker Network such as Titan Poker, William Hill, and Bet365 Poker are in the midst of a festival featuring Six Plus Hold’em, the newest poker variant to be offered online. In Six Plus Hold’em, the deck is shortened to 36 cards after removing 2-5 of all suits. The game is played like Texas Hold’em, except that three of a kind beats a straight and a flush beats a full house.

Daily events such as a €60 freeroll and €600 Added Tournament are running now that send the top 60 players to a €6,666 Grand Final to be held Sunday, March 13 at 19:30 GMT. If you’re ready to try a poker game recommended by poker superstars Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan, this weekend would be the time to do so in order to win your way to the €6,666 Grand Final.
