This weekend the partypoker US Network will be hosting the very first Progressive Knockout (PKO) Series. A total of nine events will take place with buy-ins starting at $20 and going as high as $320. Over $150,000 in guaranteed prize money will be on offer.
New Jersey Gaming
The series is open to players located in New Jersey with gaming offered via partypoker US, BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker. The PKO tournament is one that is highly popular among players, so it is not surprising to see party offer this new series.
In PKO events, when a player eliminates a competitor, they claim a bounty. A portion of the bounty goes in their bankroll while another portion goes towards their own bounty. The more players you knockout, the more you earn and the higher your bounty. There is potential to earn major prizes with this format and the series is expected to be quite popular among players.
The Main Event of the series is one that is sure to see a ton of traffic. The event is PKO and will be played in Phased format, an option known at partypoker. The event offers a $75,000 prize pool and will offer a $35 Phase 1 flight each night. The surviving players will move their chip stacks to Phase 2 on August 2nd and will hopefully finish in the money.
Players who do not want to start in Phase 1 can begin instantly in Phase 2 but will need to pay a much higher buy-in of $320 to take part.
Daily qualifiers will also be on offer with a $5 buy-in. One in eight players will win an entry into the $35 Phase 1 while one in 10 will win a $45 satellite entry from the Phase 2 satellite. There will also be a daily Phase 2 satellite offering one in eight a seat to the $320 event.
The full schedule of events for the Progressive Knockout Series can be viewed at the three sites operating on the partypoker US Network. Easily find a tournament to compete during this brand-new series.
2x iRewards Points
For New Jersey partypoker players, the site is also offering double the rewards this month. Players can earn 2x the iRewards Points during the month of July. This is available via cash games and tournaments. To take part, players must opt in one time. This ensures any points that are earned will be doubled. At the end of the day, the double points are added to the online poker account.
This offer applies across the partypoker US Network so players at the party site, BetMGM and Borgata Poker can earn extra points. The points do not count towards the loyalty tier level but still have value. The month still has a few days remaining, so players still have plenty of time to try and earn more points.
Be sure to take advantage of this deal if you are logging on to the partypoker US network any time this month.
