partypoker: over $500,000 in tournament overlays and $91,000 rake race

fastforward leaderboards: prize pool rise to $91,000

There have been several increases in the prize pool of the new fast poker rake races at partypoker; right now the added money exceeds the $90k. In the beginning, the races were divided by stakes (both for NLH and PLO), but this formula didn't work as the highest stakes barely had action.

So the last four leaderboards were combined into two, and at the same time, the prize was doubled. Another change in the rake structure were the positions rewarded: for PLO25 was reduced from 12 to 10 players (with an increase in the prizes for the TOP5).

For the low stakes race (PLO2 to PLO10), on the contrary, three new paid places were added for a total of 11.

KO Series: total overlay exceeds $500,000

At the beginning of the latest KO Series, we shared that overlays over $200,00 were spotted at the tables. Now the event has ended, and we can analyze the final results and confirm if the measures to improve the players' attendance worked out

Usually, the largest events cover the guaranteed prize pool (thanks to more advertising); in the KO Series all the main events covered the GTD prize pool, usually by a substantial margin, mainly because of several satellites played during the series:

But throughout the week, we counted about 50 events with small overlays of 1%-2% of the total guaranteed prize pool.

In terms of the overlay size, the most profitable KO Series events for players were:

  • KO Series №35-H: $750K GTD, $320 – overlay $38,212;
  • KO Series №35-HR: $750K GTD, $2,100 – $28,400;
  • KO Series №43-R: $200K GTD, $110 – $25,696;
  • KO Series №40-HR: $750K GTD, $1,050 – $22,560;
  • KO Series №12-HR: $500K GTD, $2,100 – $22,350;
  • KO Series №25-HR: $1500K GTD, $530 – $18,800;
  • KO Series №11-H: $200K GTD, $110 – $15,296;

In short, the total size of overlays in the KO Series exceeded $500,000, which is, of course, a significant amount of money but only accounts for 1,7% of the global guaranteed prize pool, and only half as much as in the same series in spring. We can conclude that the measures implemented by partypoker gave the desired result.

Another good news for partypoker players came from Rob Yong, who confirmed that shortly players will have an option to download the hand histories in a CSV format with anonymized villains (player 1, player 2, etc.).
