888poker To Run KO Games Festival From Nov 26 To Dec 12 With Over $1m GTD
- KO Games poker festival to commence on 888poker from Nov 26
- Low stakes players have loads of exciting events to participate in
- Key events that you must watch out for at the KO Games
888poker will be pretty busy towards the end of the month as the online poker operator is launching The Knock Out (KO) Games series which will run from Nov 26 to Dec 12 and offer over $1 million in guaranteed prize money across the series.
While top poker operators like PokerStars and GGPoker tend to focus heavily on mid and high stakes poker players, 888poker has put the KO series together especially for low stakes players.
Exciting Events For Low Stakes Players
The buy-ins for this poker festival start as low as $11 and go all the way up to $525. If you have a think bankroll and want to play as many events as possible at the KO series, then watch out for: PKO Mini which has a $11 buy-in and runs on Nov 27 with a $5,000 guarantee; the KO mini which has a $33 buy-in, runs on Nov 29 and has a $5,000 guarantee; and the PKO Turbo Deep 6-Max Mini which runs on Dec 01 with a $22 buy-in and a $10,000 guarantee.
Mid-stakes players should look out for the Super KO 6-Max which has a $320 buy-in and takes place on Nov 28 and has a $20,000 guarantee and the PKO Turbo Deep 6-Max which has a $109 buy-in and takes place on Dec 01 with a $12,000 guaranteed prize pool.
There are not a lot of events for high stakes players but if you want heavier action watch out for the High Roller Mystery Bounty on Dec 3 which has a $525 buy-in and a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The most anticipated event at the KO series will be the Mystery Bounty Main Event Overlay Edition. It’s interesting to see 888poker add the Overlay Edition to this event’s name and the reason for this is because the buy-in is just $25 and the guaranteed prize pool is $200,000.
888poker will need to get 8,700 registrations during Dec 5 to 11 to meet the guaranteed prize pool or it will result in an overlay.
Multiple Ways To Qualify
There are multiple ways to qualify for the KO series. Players can take part in the different satellites running on 888poker and also take part in the Snowmen Festival Knockout Challenge to win seats to the KO series.
