Partypoker launched its popular Grand Prix KO Series on Sep 19 and the series will run till Oct 4. The Grand Prix KO Series usually takes place as a live poker tournament and is very popular with live poker players. Partypoker decided to shift it online due to the on-going concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grand Prix KO Series
Partypoker put together a 16 event PKO series that features a wide range of buy-ins. The lowest buy-in starts at $5.50 and the highest buy-in in the series is $530. The PKO format is very popular with partypoker players as you don’t have to finish in the money to enjoy a decent payout.
The highlight of the Grand Prix KO Series will be the $109 Main Event which has a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000. The 16 events at the Grand Prix KO Series have different start timings in order to cater to poker players who live in different time zones around the world.
The Grand Prix KO Series is ideal for players who like playing low stakes to mid stakes poker games. There are a number of starting flights for most of the events and a number of them allow reentries. The low buy-ins gives players who are new to the game of poker and those with a limited bankroll, the chance to play at partypoker and win big prizes.
High Roller Events
There are four events at the Grand Prix KO Series that come with a 6 figure guaranteed prize pool. Players who are looking for big payouts should look to take part in the 6-Max event which has a $55 buy-in and a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool, the High Roller which has a $530 buy-in and a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, the 6-Max High Roller event which also has a $530 buy-in and a $500,000 guaranteed.
The fourth 6 figure event is the Mini Main Event which has a $11 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000. Given the low buy-ins for these high roller events, partypoker is expecting a strong response which should result in a big surplus over the guaranteed prize money.
Grand Prix KO Series Main Event
Partypoker is running multiple satellite events that will allow players to get a seat into the $109 Main Event for a fraction of the price. Satellite events starting out at $2.20 are currently taking place at partypoker. These $2.20 satellites feed into another satellite which cost $16.50 to enter. The winner gets a seat at the $109 Grand Prix KO Series Main Event.
Players who enter the Main Event will receive 100,000 in chips and play to an 8 minute time clock. The blinds start at 400/800/100a and players will be able to register during the first 12 levels. The format will also allow one re-entry per play per flight.
Day 1 will come to an end when only 15 percent of the playing field is left and these players will proceed to Day 2. All players who make it to Day 2 will receive a mini cash prize along with any bounties they picked up.
The 2020 Grand Prix KO Series Main Event saw a total of 5,406 registrations and in the end, it was Sasa Lukovic who finished on top. Lukovic took home a total of $50,159.
Partypoker just finished staging the WPT World Online Championships which had a good response. The $5,300 Main Event was the highlight of the series and was won by Rok Gostisa who took home a prize of $959,493 for his first place finish.
