Over the last few days of this month, Pennsylvania online poker players have multiple chances to improve their fortunes. That’s due to the fact that the guarantees in the upcoming PA Partypoker Online Series add up to a small fortune.
The 10 events available via PA’s two newest online poker brands boast a combined $320,000 in guarantees. While that’s some serious cash, you don’t have to go all-in with your entire bankroll to take part.

Following up a similar event in New Jersey earlier this year, the 2021 PartyPoker Network Online Series starts in PA on May 23. The series continues with at least one event per day through May 30. Buy-ins vary throughout the schedule, as do guarantees. Here are those details by date:

For similar events in NJ in March, a rush of early sign-ups for the event helped post the series’ value for players to over $700,000. The main event, which was a $125K GTD 8-MAX NLH with a $1,060 buy-in, saw 464 entries. First place in that event took just under $83,000 home.

Tournament play available at Borgata and BetMGM Poker year-round
The best way to get better at poker is simply to play. Through BetMGM and Borgata, Pennsylvanians have regular access to tournament-style games no matter what time of year it is. Partypoker generally offers daily tournaments of several kinds, including Daily $10,000 GTD and Sit & Go tournaments.
Some of the more famous tournament events on Partypoker include Mega Tuesday with a $535 buy-in and a Thursday $320 PKO Bounty. Every Sunday, there’s a $215 buy-in $40K GTD event. On its second Sunday, that tournament had an overlay of $13,800, according to USPoker.
With multiple buy-in levels as low as just a few dollars, there are chances to hone your craft no matter your budget or schedule.
From May 23-30, you’ll probably want to clear some extra time and dedicate some of your bankroll to these events. If their predecessors are any indication, the winners here will be glad they bought in.
