Most poker players set themselves monetary goals at the start of each year. It seems like the natural thing to do. If “upeshka” has done this, they have already made some major inroads into achieving their goal because they padded their bankroll with more than $51,500 this weekend.
“upeshka” came out on top of the $320 buy-in New Year Kick Off event, a $300,000 guaranteed affair that saw $428,100 paid out. The champion secured $27,105 from the main prize pool plus an additional bounty payment weighing in at $24,429 for a superb score.
One of our own narrowly missed out on a final table appearance. Team Online’s Matthew “MatthewStaples” Staples ran out of steam in ninth-place. This saw Staples walk away with almost $3,800.
All seven finalists saw at least $7,600 hit their partypoker accounts, with the top five finishers reeling in five-figure prizes.
“hostile” banked the first of these before “M0ng0lit0” fell in fourth for $17,725. Third place went to “summasummarum” which was worth $22,253 before “ThomasMorstead” crashed out in second place, a finish good for $33,234.
KO Series #07 – New Year Kick Off Final Table Results
KO Series #07 – Mini New Year Kick Off Final Table Results
The $33 buy-in Mini New Year Kick Off event had a $75,000 guaranteed prize pool but it completely blew that out of the water. An impressive $172,110 was distributed in this KO Series event and “RogerioCeni” got their hands on the lion’s share, namely $14,909, a chunky score for a $33 investment.
RogerioCeni swept aside “MKp0kk3r” in the heads-up clash at the end of the event. The runner-up, while disappointed not to become a KO Series champion, walked away with $11,067 reasons to be happy with their performance.
Nobody at the final table padded their bankrolls with less than $2,100 which is pretty cool for a $33 buy-in PKO tournament and shows how profitable PKO events can be if you go deep in them.
KO Series #07 – Micro New Year Kick Off Final Table Results
“youngrich99” lived up to their alias after taking down the $3.30 Micro New Year Kick Off event. First-place in this tournament saw $844 hit the champion’s account plus an additional $575 bounty payment for a combined score of $1,419. That prize is the equivalent of 430 buy-ins!
The champion defeated “wim2011” heads-up for the title and resigned the runner-up to a combined consolation prize worth $914, which is still a very healthy return on a $3.30 initial investment. These two stars are living proff you don’t have to spend a lot to win big at partypoker.
