How would you like to get paid to knockout a four-time world champion boxer? We don't mean in the boxing ring, but on the poker felts.
We bet it would feel good, and on Jan. 31 at 19:00 CET at partypoker, you will have your chance to knockout none other than former four-time super-middleweight world champion Carl Froch from a special knockout tournament dubbed The Cobra.
The Cobra, Froch’s boxing nickname, features a $102+7 buy-in with a huge $100,000-guaranteed prize pool. Additionally, every single player you knockout of the tournament will award you $20. However,if you knockout Froch, you will be handsomely rewarded 100-times the normal amount with a robust $2,000 bounty.
Froch isn't the only celebrity you can potentially collect a supersized bounty on. As things stand right now, there are $2,000 bounties on Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong, Simon Trumper, Sky’s Formula 1 presenter Simon Lazenby, and Made In Chelsea TV star Jamie Laing. According to the partypoker website, more $2,000 bounty players might still be added to the field.

If you are excited by The Cobra but $109 is a bit too much to enter into one tournament, rest assured that there are plenty of ways to get in much cheaper. Every day until Jan. 30, partypoker is hosting Mega Satellites with just a $22 buy-in with anywhere from 10 to 50 seats being awarded to The Cobra.
While $22 should be affordable for most of you, you can get in even cheaper via partypoker's improved ticket system where tournaments start at just $0.01. You can work your way up the ticket ladder until you win a $22 ticket to play in a Mega Satellite or even work your way up until you win a $109 ticket. In other words, you can win a ticket to The Cobra for just one penny! You are also welcome to start at the $5.50 level or higher to make your path to winning a ticket a bit faster.
The last path might prove to be the easiest, if you happen to have been saving your partypoker points as you can buy a ticket straight from the partypoker store and play for free!
