partypoker KO Series Starts On Sunday With $30m In Prize Money
The world’s second largest poker site partypoker will once again play host to the latest installment of the KO Series.
Taking place from May 12-26, the festival features a total of 226 events, all played in progressive knockout (PKO) format. Players will be excited to learn that partypoker has $30 million in guaranteed prize money to be won.
If you are looking for huge value, the KO Series is perfect for you as partypoker is not charging any rake on the bounty element of the buy-in. You can guarantee incredible bounties throughout the two-week festival.
PKO Format Explained
All players primarily begin with a bounty on their heads. For every player you send out of the game, you will receive a cash payment. Your bounty also increases with each elimination you are responsible for. If you win, you will get the bounty on your own head which often surpasses the value of the top prize being awarded in some higher buy-in events.
A similar prize is guaranteed for the top two players who will then battle it out for the massive bounty payment.

The KO Series has something in store for players of all skillsets, with buy-ins ranging from $2.20, all the way up to $5,200.
