Online poker has peaked in a major way in 2020. The year has been an odd one and the effect of the coronavirus pandemic has been that players are staying at home and need entertainment. They turn to online poker for gaming action and sites are providing even more great tournament options to meet the demand. Just last week, Americas Cardroom kicked off a brand new series, offering players plenty of progressive knockout action.
Details of the Series
Titled MOMOMO PKO, the new series began on September 9 and will continue through November 1. A total of $50 million in prizes are guaranteed throughout this series. This is the biggest PKO offering ever, with over 500 events set to take place. Players can easily find events each day of the week as the series takes place.
Events will vary but for the most part will be 8 Max or 6 Max format. There will be Turbos, High Roller options, Supers, Fast, Survival Hypers and much more. The prize pools can be small like the $4,000 GTD Roller Saver with a buy-in of $10 or they can be super high, like the $200,000 GTD Super with a $1000 buy-in.
With so many events on the schedule, players can easily play in low, medium or high buy-in tournaments. Each day, there is a nice mix of both, which makes it easy for every type of player to find something to play in.
Big events on the schedule include the Venom PKO Main Event. This event will be the biggest single PKO tournament in the history of online poker. It is a multi-day affair set to offer $5 million in total prize money. Bounties will grow as players are knocked out, so there is potential to earn some serious cash.
Every Sunday, the series will offer a $1 million guaranteed PKO event. Players will want to check out this event due to the cash up for grabs.
As with any tournament series, the online poker room will be offering up a leaderboard competition. The more you play, the more opportunity there is to win extra prizes. With this option at Americas Cardroom, the leaderboard option is limited.
Players can compete from now until the 19. Free tournament tickets are on offer. The leaderboard contest will be good from Event #66 to #139. Players will earn points based on the tournaments they play in during that time frame. Points are then calculated based on Bounty Cash won as well as buy-in amounts.
The top ten players on the leaderboard earn a ticket prize. First place has $600 + $30 ticket while 2nd through 4th place earns a $200 + $15 ticket. For finishers in the 6th to 10th place, a ticket is offered worth $100 + $9.
The top prize is the exact amount needed to play in one of the $1 million guaranteed PKO events. These events take place at the end of September into October.
