That is going to be one busy period for all the poker players competing, in these kind of tournaments. With two sites running big tournaments, they will have more chances, to hit a good prize at the end. If both sites have low buy in satellites, some low level buy ins may hit good also
this poker room this year holds a lot of interesting tournaments with grand prizes ... but I usually play in sitngo and multi-table tournaments I do not really like ... of course if it's not freerolls ... in freerolls I always play with pleasure .. ..particularly when there is no money on the account

will play many professional players with money, players with money or other gamblers through satellites. They will be busy because many of them live with poker winnings and these series has more games where they can win big money. Nice games.

There are certainly a lot of tournaments to pick from at the moment. For me, it would be Party Poker all the way, I've been a loyal member of that site for a very very long time now so if I were to play any MTTs, I would do it over there for sure. Especially now that they have these massive prize pools available for the few lucky people who manage to bink one of them.
The only one I wish I could partake in is the 25k Omaha High Roller on JokerStars, which by all means looks like insane fun but it's kinda funny that the holdem tourney with the same buyin has twice the guaranteed amount in prize money.

well it is interesting to see party poker like really trying to take on the so called heavyweight of online poker world, but on the other hand now it is about the right time or at least it seems so with pokerstars in a state of pissing off its players base
I would not argue against throwing away those platinum passes which could send you to the Bahamas as well. Even without the initial 25k guaranteed seats in the tourney a vacation at the Bahamas could provide some lifelong memories. Except when is a hurricane of course.

In comparison for those of us with a low bench it is better to play at Party Poker, since one can play them and be able to play a large tournament, that is why for this competition PowerFest is better.

For Party Poker it will be nice with their new software. Probably will have more players and their tournaments will be successful. For Pokerstars i think they will lose some money in few tournaments because players may be fewer as in the past. Anyway, it remains to be seen what will happen.
