2021 got off to a flying start at partypoker with six of our players taking down KO Series side events and three massive KO Series events completing the first of their two starting flights.
KO Series – 6-Max Final Table Results
“kelsey2706” was the last player standing from a field of 276 in the $215 KO Series 6-Max: $50K Gtd. Those 276 entrants created a $55,200 prize pool that saw half go on the heads of each player and the remaining 50% shared among the top 47 finishers.
The champion netted a combined prize worth an impressive $10,174 made up of a $4,114 main prize pool score and $6,060 worth of bounty payments. A decent chunk of the latter came from sending “Jamnix_90” to the sidelines in second place, thus securing the title of champion.
“RAFAEL NADOWN” was the final table’s first casualty, a finish worth in excess of $1,250. “Alister308” and “Markolade1099” were the next to fall before “Pahantut1993” busted in third to send the tournament into the heads-up stage, where kelsey2706 excelled.
