partypoker’s latest KO Series has been a resounding success so far and these next three tournaments are sure to prove popular. Kicking off at 7:05 p.m. GMT on January 14 are a trio of Warm Up tournaments, called such because they serve as the perfect way to warm up for the weekend’s Main Events.
They come with three different buy-ins, making it possible for players of all bankroll to get involved and potentially win big.
KO Series #20 – Warm Up Day 1A is a $320 buy-in event with a guaranteed prize pool worth $200,000. You can also play in the $33 buy-in Mini Warm Up with its $75,000 guarantee, and the $3.30 Micro Warm Up that has $10,000 guaranteed to be won.
Amazing Structures Regardless of the Buy-in Level
You are in for a treat regardless of which Warm Up you play because of the amazing structures partypoker has created. Everyone sits down with 100,000 chips and the plan is to play until only 15% of the field remains. You’ll lock horns to blinds starting at 500/1,000/100, which gives you plenty of room to manoeuvrer. Those blinds increase every 16-minutes in the $320 buy-in, 14-minutes in the $33 edition, and every 12-minutes in the $3.30 Micro.
Don’t leave it too long to turn up fashionably late because late registration slams shut after the 10th level concludes. Dust off your stack while late registration is open and you can re-enter once and only once, which levels the playing field somewhat.
The second of three flights in each of the three events shuffles up and deals at the same time, 7:05 p.m., on January 15. The structure and format is a carbon copy of Day 1A with 15% of the field progressing to Day 2.
Those of you planning to grind on Day 1C need to head to partypoker at 4:05 p.m. GMT. Playing Day 1C means the clock is a little shorter than the previous two flights. Blinds increase every 10-minutes in the $320 Warm Up and nine minutes in both the Mini and Micro.
Day 2 starts at 8:05 p.m. GMT prompt and continues until only one player remains in each tournament, that player becoming a KO Series champion and padding their bankroll with what should be a chunky top prize and a bucketful of bounty payments.
