From 2nd to 16th February the KO Series returns to partypoker.
The prize money guarantee for the 230 tournaments will be $10,000,000. Buy-ins for the individual Knockout Bounty MTTs will range from $2.20 to $2,100.
Not all PKOs are the same
All tournaments in the series are played in the popular Progressive Knockout (PKO) format. But if you thought these were just Full Ring Hold ’em tournaments, you’re wrong. With 8-Max, 6-Max, Mix-Max 8-6, Mix-Max 6-4, as well as the “Battle” variant, there’s daily variety. Furthermore, not only NLH-MTTs take place, but also PLO-MTTs, these in the variants 6-Max and Big Ante.
8 Main Events with a total of $1.4 GTD on 16th February
On 16th February, the grand finale of the series, there will be four Main Events at two starting times (8 pm & 9:30 pm CET) with different buy-ins and huge guarantees. Satellites can be used to qualify for these final tournaments starting at $5.50.
These NLH 8-Max tournaments start at 8:30pm:
These PLO 6-Max tournaments start at 9:30:
No fee on bounties for more value!
In this edition of the KO Series, partypoker is once again waiving its fee on the bounties and ensuring that the bounties have even more value. So the bounty hunt should be exciting.
KO Series tickets in special KO Series SPINS
As with other highlights at partypoker, there are also special KO Series SPINS where you can win a $2,100 ticket to the KO Series for $5.50 with a little multiplier luck. Starting at a multiplier of 4.4, KO Series tickets ($22 in this case) are paid out, up to the $2,100 KO Series buy-in at the highest multiplier of 420.
The Team partypoker Pros are also there and already excited
Partypoker’s figurehead and recent GPI Female Player of the Year, Kristen Bicknell, knows that the KO Series offers the opportunity to make a profitable start to 2020. She is also very excited about the series, saying, “The knockout format means you make more money with each elimination, and that favours an aggressive playing style!”
Joao Simao is also a fan of the series, which in his opinion offers a wide range of buy-ins and different variations.
