Two partypoker Pokerfest Events Cancelled Due to Connection Issues

Share this

Sunday found partypoker forced to cancel two tournaments that were part of the ongoing Pokerfest series along with other top events on the schedule due to connectivity problems.

"We have taken the decision to cancel all tournaments which are due to start in the next two hours due to the Gibraltar ISP network issues we are currently experiencing," from a statement published on the Two Plus Two poker forum. "This cancellation will affect two Pokerfest events: Event 38 - $75,000 Gtd, and Event 39 - $150,000 Gtd, along with all other guaranteed and non-guaranteed tournaments in our schedule. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused this evening and would like to highlight that we are doing our utmost to ensure a stable network is resumed as soon as possible."

Players began complaining Sunday afternoon when they were continuously disconnected from the partypoker tables. partypoker believed the issues had been resolved and sent out word that everything had been taken care of and Sunday's scheduled games would proceed, it wasn't long before the disconnects restarted. partypoker reported that it wasn't possible to continue as planned and access to the poker client was not stable.

Three events that had combined prize pools of $40,000 were scheduled to run on Monday, October 27th, in the Pokerfest Series since the technical issues had been resolved.
