BetOnline Runs PKO Turbo Takedown to May 28
The summer poker season is heating up everywhere, especially at the poker tables and on social media. Poker players are rounding out the first half of the year with mid-majors tours and World Poker Tour stops before gearing up for the World Series of Poker action. Some players will head to Las Vegas to play the WSOP or any of the numerous series scheduled for the LV area during June and July. Online players are gearing up for their own type of grind online.
Meanwhile, BetOnline is giving all of those poker players a way to prepare for their summers. And it has $575K worth of prize pools guaranteed to be in it.
Turbo Takedown Poker Series
The latest online poker tournament series will lead up to the start of the WSOP in Las Vegas. It will be a fast series with turbo structures for 46 tournaments plus a Main Event. And important to mention is the progressive knockout format for all of the events.

The PKO structures will use the 50/50 setup, with half of each buy-in going to the prize pool and the other half to the player’s bounty. It’s easier to explain with an example.
-Players A and B buy in to a $50 tournament.
-Each player contributed $25 to the prize pool, and each player has a $25 bounty on their head.
-Player A eliminates Player B.
-Player A receives half of the bounty on Player B’s head, which is $12.50.
-The other half of the bounty ($12.50) is added to Player A’s bounty.
-Player A now has a bounty of $37.50 on their head.
And on it goes.
The Turbo Takedown series offers 46 tournaments, mostly of the No Limit Hold’em variety but with one Omaha variation per day. Buy-ins range from just $1.10 and $5.50 to $215, but most of the events remain at the $55 price point and lower.
