The Knockout Games Series Schedule
As already mentioned, the Series starts on April 24, with three separate events taking place that day alone.
Event #1 will feature a $109 buyin with a $125,000 guarantee, setting the tone for the rest of the series, with what promises to be an amazing tournament with over 1,000 runners.
Each day, three tournaments will be played, with starting times at 5 pm, 6 pm, and 7:30 pm.
Each event on the schedule will be some form of a knockout tournament, which means your buyin will be split between the money going towards the prize pool and the money going towards the bounties.
888poker has made sure that every day of the Series hosts a tournament for those looking to play smaller stakes, one for the mid stakes, and one for the higher stakes players.
Apart from the $215 Main Event, some other standout events include:
- $160 Super Knockout on April 26,
- $160 Tune Up PKO on May 1
- $55 Mini Main PKO that concludes the Series
The $1 million in guarantees is just an early estimate. We expect more than that the to be handed out over the course of 44 exciting events we will see in the coming weeks.
Chris Eubank Jr. Sends You to Vegas
Perhaps the most exciting thing about the Knockout Games Series is the fact 888poker ambassador Chris Eubank Jr. will be playing the tournaments, and a very special bounty will be placed on his head in event #22, the $150,000 Tune-Up PKO.
The player who is able to knock out Chris will get a Road to Las Vegas package worth $13,000 just for the knockout.
On top of that, all players who bust on the bubble of any event in the Series will enter a raffle, with a chance to get a pair of boxing gloves signed by the champion himself.
These are only a few of the most exciting things about this tournament Series, with events #1, #22, and #43 all streamed live on 888pokerTV Twitch channel as they go down.
With just a few days left, remember to sign up with 888poker in time and jump into the freerolls and satellite tournaments to get your entries for the Knockout Games Series at the most affordable prices possible.
