Author: Vargoso Published: 15.04.22

After a long break, 888Poker announced a new PKO series. 44 Knockout Games tournaments guaranteeing $1,000,000 are planned from spring 2022. A unique prize, a WSOP ME 2022 package, will be awarded to the player who knocks out the room ambassador Chris Eubank in event #22.

Knockout Games Series at 888Poker

Features of the series

Over the past year, 888Poker experimented with different formats of its tournament series (Retro, WPT Deepstacks Online, seasonal XL-series, Millions Superstorm) but ultimately "forgot" about the most famous MTT nowadays: progressive knockouts. The last of such series took place in the spring of 2020. 

From April 24 to May 8, 2022, 888Poker will host 44 Knockout Games Series events guaranteeing $1,000,000.

The new PKO series features:

  • Tournaments with buy-ins from $11 to $215. Many events have buy-ins of $33 (10 tournaments) and $55 (8 events)
  • Three events will be played every day at the same time, except for May 8, when the "Mains" will be held
  • Tournaments held at the same time have the same format and name and differ only in the buy-in
  • Only the blind structure is different in the most expensive daily tournament (12 minutes instead of 10)
  • Three events ($125,000 Opening Event PKO, $150,000 Tune up PKO, and $300,000 Main Event PKO) will feature final tables on a separate day with live streaming via Twitch.

Chris Eubank, the new room ambassador, is linked to the series. The player who knocks him out in event #22 ($160 buy-in) will get a Road to las Vegas package worth $13,000. The organizers also promised to hold a raffle with a pair of autographed boxing gloves among the winners of the series tournaments.

Main Events

Knockout Games Series Main Event

This time there will be two main events. The biggest of them:

KO Games #43 — $300,000 Main Event PKO for $215 kicks off May 8. His $55 "little brother" guaranteeing $50,000 starts an hour later.

Both tournaments feature the following structure:

  • Starting stack: 300bb and 250bb
  • Blind structure: 12 minutes
  • Up to 3 re-entries are allowed during the late registration period (215 minutes)

Satellites are planned for both events, and freerolls with $215 tickets will start for the largest one from April 15. They should help the tournament collect the 1,500 entries needed to cover the guarantee. As usual, a hidden overlay is expected.
