Some highlights from the partypoker Irish Poker Masters KO Online

The KO series action begins Thursday with the first of four starting flights in the €320 Opener, which guarantees €250,000. The €55 IPM50 also begins on the opening day and comes with a €200,000 guarantee.

Even more action kicks off the festivities. The €44 Big 4 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Eight or Better (PLO8) also begins on Nov. 4 with a €50,000 guarantee. Players will find numerous starting flights throughout the series for these events.

That also goes for the Main Event, which begins on Sunday with the first of four starting flights. Days 1B and 1C will be held on the next two Sundays, followed by a turbo flight on Nov. 22.

The turbo takes place right before Day 2 gets underway on the same day. The final table will then play out on the last day of the series.

As in many partypoker series, the site is working to get more players of all bankrolls in the Main Event. Party is offering players opportunities to qualify for just €0.01.

The full satellite tree has these “centrolls” leading to a mega satellite final just before Day 1A this Sunday. As many as 50 seats to the Main Event are guaranteed in this qualifier.

What is a progressive knockout?

Those new to the PKO format will find a unique twist on a bounty tournament. Players all start with a bounty on their head as in a traditional knockout tournament.

However, in a PKO event a player knocking out another player doesn’t win the entire bounty. The winning player only banks a portion of that bounty.

The other portion is added to that player’s own bounty amount. The deeper a player progresses in the tournament, the more his bounty is worth.

The winner not only wins first-place money from the prize pool but also a nice number of bounties. That includes the money on the winner’s own head.

PKOs have become extremely popular and more online poker operators continue to feature this style of tournament.

Partypoker adds special event to series

Another highlight on the Irish Poker schedule is the €530 JP Masters. The tournament is named after Irish Open tournament director and host JP McCann.

The two-day event offers players eight starting flights. The tournament runs from Nov. 8-15 and comes with a €300,000 guarantee.

The new series comes after the Irish Poker Open moved online at partypoker during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are delighted to continue our association with partypoker and the new Irish Poker Masters KO Online is sure to be a lot of fun,” McCann said in a news release.

“Following on from last year’s successful Irish Poker Masters Online, this series will offer a superb range of games to suit all players. We would like to thank partypoker for continuing to offer events with great value online.”

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
