Dive in to the partypoker Grand Prix KO Summer Series

The latest offering by partypoker is the Grand Prix KO Summer Series – and it’s simply too good to miss, whether you’re a tournament veteran or looking to broaden your poker horizons. Running from August 11 to August 29, this sizzling summer series is guaranteed to provide a white-hot atmosphere to rival what has thus far been record-breaking weather for many.

And it’s not just edge-of-the-seat action that’s a sure thing from partypoker – the nosebleed level of the money up for grabs is a given, too, with guaranteed prize pools on offer as high as a very tasty $500,000.

Furthermore, partypoker’s everyman ethos shines through in the shape of bankroll-friendly buy-ins that range from $5.50 to $320, as well as ludicrously cheap satellites (see below). Each of the featured events has several Day 1 slots that enable the top 15% to battle through to Day 2 which, in turn, is enough to earn a prize for your efforts.

The accessibility of the partypoker Grand Prix KO Summer Series is highlighted by the curtain-raiser, a $3.30 Mini Opener to accompany the $33 Opener. The prize pools in these tantalising festival tasters are guaranteed at $15,000 and $75,000 respectively.

$500,000 Gtd Main Event

A nice touch of this Grand Prix KO Summer Edition is that it boasts two Main Events so that everyone has a chance of glory. Entrants in Event #05, the $109 buy-in $500,000 GTD Main Event, for example, will be looking to emulate Augusto Hagen of Argentina, who won a total of $51,356 when taking down the Winter edition. Running in tandem with this tournament, the $11 Mini Main Event (which, like the $109 buy-in version, has a single re-entry, 12-level late registration format) is hardly aptly named if the guaranteed prize pool is anything to go by – the great value $11 buy-in gives you a shot at a $100,000 prize pool!

And there’s more…

If your poker appetite isn’t already suitably whetted, there’s plenty more juicy action (and prize money) to stick your proverbial teeth into. This includes a $215 buy-in $200,000 Gtd 6-Max Championship and a $320 buy-in $250,000 Gtd 7-Max High Roller. The Super 50 and Super 5 events, meanwhile, with respective buy-ins of $55 and $5, are expected to once again prove very popular, not least because value-seekers can aim for a share of the $150,000 and $30,000 guaranteed payouts.
