$30 Million Guaranteed KO Series Running Now at partypoker
The KO Series heads to partypoker from May 12-26 and sees combined guaranteed prize pools worth $30 million up for grabs.
This latest instalment of the KO Series features 226 tournament, each played as a progressive knockout (PKO) event. The PKOs at partypoker are superb value because the site does not charge rake on the bounty element of the buy-in, leading to more substantial bounties.
What is a PKO tournament?
PKO is an acronym for Progressive Knockout, a tournament where everyone starts with a bounty on their heads. When you eliminate an opponent, part of their bounty is awarded to you as a cash payment with the remainder going on your own head to make you a more attractive target for your opponents.
Should you win the tournament, you also secure the bounty on your own head, which is usually quite substantial by this stage and often larger that the first place prize in some of the higher buy-in events.
partypoker pays first and second place a similar prize and leaves the heads-up duo to lock horns for the now chunky bounty payment.
