The latest instalment of the ever-popular KO Series got underway this weekend, and do so in some style. More than a dozen partypoker players became KO Series champions during the opening weekend, with “JamminBenjamin” being one of the biggest winners courtesy of taking down the first $215 Weekender.
$150,000 was guaranteed in the KO Series #01-H Weekender but the 1,187 entrants meant we paid out $237,400! Only 176 of those starters made it through to Day 2, each winning a slice of the main prize pool in addition to any bounties they picked up along the way.
Each of the nine finalists secured payouts of more than $3,000 when bounties were included. “Dolitilei” was the first of the finalists to bow out. They were joined on the rail first by “giu1iano” then by “mc.gabbabong99”, “EducateYourself,” and “Gn4si.”
Fourth place and a combined prize worth more than $10,000 went to “RieBei” before “WrongAgain” crashed out in third for $11,810. That elimination left “Scelevco” heads-up against “JamminBenjamin.” Both players locked in more than $15,200 from the main prize pool, but the bounty payments were massive at this stage.
JamminBenjamin got the job done and bolstered their $15,234 top prize with $16,609 from the bounty prize pool. Our runner-up added $2,906 to their $15,209 consolation prize.
KO Series #01-H: Weekender Final Table Results
Schwerer Gustav Reels In $37,688 Score
“Schwerer Gustav” became a KO Series champion and $37,688 richer thanks to walking away with the KO Series #07-HR 8-Max title. The champion navigated their way through a 188-strong field to secure the lion’s share of the guarantee-busting $188,000 prize pool.
With bounties included, none of the eight finalists won less than $3,992 for their $1,050 investment. “Nonstoper,” “procop13,” “nofear444” and “dududantas” were the first casualties of the final table, the latter scooping $10,554 for their efforts.
Each exit saw a sizeable jump in payouts. “C4ctu5” banked $11,148 for their fourth-place finish, with “itsasecretuknow” padding their bankroll with $14,380 after bowing out in third.
Schwerer Gustav and “BolsoLIXO” locked horns heads-up having each banked more than $14,200. BolsoLIXO fell at the final hurdle and saw $6,414 worth of bounties hit their account. However, Schwerer Gustav received $23,382 from the bounty prize pool in addition to their $14,306 first-place prize.
