After starting on Christmas Day, the partypoker KO Series has come to an end. The series finished up on January 19 with three Main Events taking place. The KO Series offered three buy-in levels, which made it easy for players of all bankrolls to compete. The series was successful, with all three of the Main Events surpassing their guarantees.
Details of the Main Events
The buy-in levels for the Main Events were $11, $109, and $1,050. The guaranteed prize pools for these online poker events were $50,000, $300,000, and $1 million respectively. The Micro event was the smallest, with 5,687 players taking part. Because of the high number of competitors, the event generated $6,870 more than its guaranteed prize pool. The first-place winner of this event was somuchfun, who earned $3,142 for the win.
The Mini Main Event saw 3,823 players competing, which led to a $382,300 prize pool. This was much higher than the guaranteed $300,000. In the end, it was Scelevco and SentaaPua going head to head for the title. Scelevco would take down the final hand to earn $21,892 in prize money plus $13,908 in bounties for an impressive overall prize of more than $35,000.
For the Main Event, 1,187 players competed. This pushed the $1 million prize pool to $1,187,000. Online player ‘Kabuzzz’ came to the final table as the chip leader and never looked back. The player earned a nice cushion to his bounty prize pot from ‘ThanksBro’ after taking him out in the final round.
In the end, ‘Kabuzzz’ earned just over $144,000 for the first place finish!
Partypoker has been quite busy over the past few months offering up quality online poker gaming. Along with the KO Series, the online poker platform has hosted several other events including the WPT Online Poker Open—Main Tour Event.
Players in New Jersey took part in the exclusive event late last year, with $1 million in prize money up for grabs. The entire partypoker US network offered qualifiers and satellites, making it much easier for players to compete for a seat to the event at a much lower rate!
