Following a successful Grand Prix KO Summer Edition earlier this year, PartyPoker invites lovers of progressive knockout tournaments to jump into the action in the Grand Prix KO Autumn Edition. Keep your schedules free between October 6-24 if you want to enjoy your fill of excellently structured PKO events.
The Grand Prix KO Autumn Edition runs from October 6-24 and features 11 PKO tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $11 through $320 that have combined guarantees in excess of $1.9 million. What makes these 11 events stand out from the crowd is the fact they continue PartyPoker’s long-running quest of leveling the playing field for all entrants regardless of the sizes of their bankrolls.
This means all of the Grand Prix KO Autumn Edition events permit only a single re-entry and have limited late registration available. In addition, all Day 1s conclude when only 15% of the field remains. The curtain comes down on proceedings once this figure is reached, with the surviving players progressing to Day 2 with at least a min-cash in tow on top of any bounties they have collected along the way.
Players are permitted to enter the same tournament more than once, even if they navigate their way through to Day 2. However, only a player’s largest stack goes through to the business end of the tournament if they make Day 2 more than once; the other stacks are forfeited.
