Compete in Three $2,000 Added PKO Tournaments

PKO tournaments, or Progressive Knockout Tournaments to give them their full name, are a great way to play tournament poker while reducing your variance because you win money for each opponent you eliminate from the event.

We have three PokerNews-only PKO tournaments for you to play, each costing $2.20 to enter and all three seeing PokerStars add $2,000 to the prize pool in addition to any prize money accumulated through buy-ins.

The bounty element adds an exciting dynamic to PKO tournaments and the bounty payments can grow large towards the latter stages. This is because your own bounty increases with every opponent you eliminate, making you a more attractive target for your opponents and vice versa.

For example, if you eliminate a player with a $1 bounty on their head, you automatically win $0.50 of that bounty and the other $0.50 is added to your own personal bounty! Should you be the last player standing, you win the first-place prize, your opponent’s bounty, and the bounty that is on your own head, which could be huge by this stage!

The three $2,000 added PKO tournaments take place at 3:05 p.m. ET on Mar. 24, Apr. 21 and May. 19 so make sure you keep these dates free if you want to go bounty hunting!
