Even professional poker players try to maximise their return on investment (ROI) by playing satellites to higher buy-in tournaments. That includes Team partypoker’s Louise “lou045” Butler who won a $530 KO Series ticket from a $44 buy-in satellite before going on to finish fifth in the target event.
We paid out another $2,010,158 across 14 events on Day 12 of the KO Series, here are the biggest wins and stories.

$30M Gtd KO Series Day 12 Recap
KO Series #44-HR: $100K Gtd 8-Max
Prize pool: $100,000

Team partypoker’s Louise “lou045” Butler turned her $44 satellite ticket into more than $4,500 by navigating her way to the final table of the $530 buy-in KO Series #44-HR: $100K Gtd 8-Max event.
Butler’s impressive run came to an end with a fifth place finish that saw her secure a $3,084 prize from the main prize pool plus an additional $1,427 from the bounty prize pool.
The eventual winner was the Austrian star known as “SchelampigaUhu”. The Austrian turned their $530 into more than $18,500 made up of the $8,459 first place prize and $10,110 worth of bounties, including that on the head of runner-up “Curvez” of Sweden who walked way with more than $12,500 for their second place finish.
KO Series #42-HR: $500K Gtd 8-Max
Prize pool: $500,000
Places paid: 32
The biggest prize of the day went to Uruguay’s “mbtremendo” who took down the $2,100 buy-in KO Series #42-HR: $500K Gtd 8-Max event for more than $100,000. The Uruguayan banked the $41,337 top prize after defeating “savageplenty” of Bulgaria heads-up. Our champion boosted their top prize with $58,882 worth of bounty payments for a total score worth $100,219.
Nobody at the eight-handed final table won less than $10,500 thanks to the huge bounties involved. Our bounties are larger than most, as a rule, as we do not charge any rake on the bounty element of the buy-in; this also makes our overall rake lower and our PKO events better value.
Shout out to Brazil’s “n1ceFTW” who finished fourth for $21,772 plus $7,021 having already won a KO Series event.
KO Series #42-H: $250K Gtd 8-Max

The $250,000 advertised guarantee of the KO Series #42-H: $250K Gtd 8-Max event was smashed as 955 players bought in for $320 and created a $294,140 prize pool.
Argentina’s “Nemesis_25” was top dog in this event, coming out on top for a $19,715 first place prize and a $15,957 bounty payment. The Argentinian defeated “Fedex18” heads-up fr the title, resigning the runner-up to $19,686 plus $3,408 from the bounty prize pool.
It was a tough final table with two of Sweden’s top players making their way to it. “Algorhytm” fell in eighth place for a combined prize worth more than $5,200 and KO Series champion “HellmuthTheGr8” busted in fourth place for $8,839 plus $896 worth of bounties.
