Upcoming Poker Tournaments 2022
By RTR Jamie
It can be hard to keep track of the best online poker tournaments, especially with the growing number of them. But don’t fear, if you’ve got your poker strategy perfected then keep reading for our list of the top unmissable tournaments happening this year.
888Poker PKO Series
This is the first on our list as at the time of writing it has already begun! If you are here before the 12th of April 2022, then you’re in luck and still have time to get involved in 888poker's knockout tournament.
The tournament is running from the 5th of April to the 12th, with a large range of events to participate in. Including a $15,000 Daily Kickoff, which occurs everyday of the event, as well as other tournaments with prize pools up to $100,000.
There are three main events, most notably the $200,000 Main Event with a $109 buy-in price. Two smaller events follow, the Mini Main Event with a prize pool of $50,000 and the Micro Main Event where you can win $15,000.
There are some great chances to win some money in this tournament, with buy-ins as low as $5.50!
So, how does the tournament work?
PKO tournaments work similarly to Multi-table Tournaments, however there is an additional cash bounty of every player that participates. When a player is eliminated, the opponent that knocked them out will win the bounty as a cash prize.
To eliminate an opponent you must win a hand where you have more chips than your opponents and you both must be all-in. If it is a multi-way pot and one player is eliminated, the player with the winning hand will win the bounty of this player only if they have the losing player covered. If this is not the case, the winner of the side pot will win the bounty.You can find out more information about how the tournament works here
