PartyPoker and the KO Series

People around the world wanted to send 2020 out with a bang, so PartyPoker offered its users the Knockout Series. While winning cash games isn’t exactly the same as giving the year 2020 the old one-two, it was a good way to start 2021.

The Partypoker KO Series rung in the new year with not only a few knockouts on the felt, but also a good time was had by all.

The KO Series ran from December 25 through January 19, with 23 primary tournaments. However, each one featured a few different buy-in levels, so that the series was affordable for all PartyPoker players. Buy-ins started as low as $1.10 all the way up to $2,100 for the high rollers. To sweeten the pot, the KO Series had millions of dollars in prize pool guarantees.

 

Progressive Knockout Format

Like most PartyPoker tournaments, the KO Series was played in the Progressive Knockout format. Progressive Knockout places half of the buy-in into the prize pool and the other half becomes each player’s starting bounty. Other players can knock each other out to collect their bounty. As players continue to knock out other players, their bounty continues to grow.

Poker players all over the world adore PKO tournaments not only because of the fast-paced action, but also because of the potential for cash, without even winning the tournament.

 

More KO Series in the Works at Partypoker

This last KO series ran from December 25 through January 19, but Partypoker has more in the works. As with all of Partypoker’s PKOs, the KO Series charge ZERO RAKE on the bounty for the buy-in.

Top-place players are paid like any other tournament, but for every opponent that a player eliminates, they’ll get a cash prize and their bounty will increase.

Stay tuned for another KO Series.
