PartyPoker to Knock Out 2020 with KO Series

PartyPoker to Knock Out 2020 with KO Series

Many people around the world would like to punch 2020 right in the face, so PartyPoker decided to offer a something close. A Knockout Series might not be as satisfying as a left hook to 2020, but it has the potential to ring in a new year with good vibes and a few knockouts at the tables.

The KO Series is ready to kick off this week, running from December 25 through January 19.

There are 23 primary tournaments, but each one offers several buy-in levels, making the series accessible to players of all bankrolls. Buy-ins will start as low as $1.10 and give the pros buy-ins up to $2,100. And, of course, there will be tens of millions of dollars in prize pool guarantees.

And of course, every tournament plays in the Progressive Knockout format. This means that half of the buy-in goes to the prize pool and the other half becomes that player’s initial bounty. An opponent can knock that player out to collect his or her bounty. As the player continues knocking out players, though, his or her bounty grows with each one.

Poker players have come to love PKO tournaments because of the action and the potential for sizeable wins without even winning the tournament. Who doesn’t want more ways to win?

KO Series Details

As mentioned, the series will run from December 25 through January 19.

Officially, there will be 23 events, all in the knockout format. But in reality, each of those events offers three buy-in levels. This goes for every event, from the Christmas Opener ($215, $22, and $2.20) to the Main Event ($1,050, $109, and $11).

Of course, there will be many ways to win, as satellites are running around the clock and start at just $1.10. There are also special KO Series SPINS, which start at just $10 and award tournament tickets worth up to $2,100.
