The three KO Series Main Events shuffled up and dealt for the first time on January 16 and it is “PALbICH” who finished as the chip leader in the $1 million guaranteed tournament.
Plenty more went on during the day’s action, here are the KO Series highlights in case you missed them.
KO Series #21 – Main Event Day 1A Top 10 Chip Counts
Some 417 players turned out for the $1,050 KO Series Main Event and Day 1A ended with only 63 of those starters still in contention for the title of champion and the lion’s share of the $1 million guaranteed prize pool.
“PALbICH” was the only player to bag up more than two million chips, 2,217,211 to be exact. There’s still a long, long way to go in this tournament but the Day 1A chip leader has done their chances of glory no harm at all by getting off to a blistering start.
“PhatToad” and “ChocolateLover” finished second and third in chips when the curtain came down on proceedings. We have to give a special mention to fourth-placed “STDCALLRANGEXD” who finished their Day 1A with 1,476,331 before bagging up more than $1.5 million chips in the $109 Mini KO Series Main Event! What an incredible achievement that is.
KO Series #21 – Mini Main Event Day 1A Top 10 Chip Counts
“Oohan1” finished Day 1A of the $109 Mini Main Event with a tournament-leading 2,622,133 chips. The starting field of 1,502 was whittled down to a more manageable 225 over the course of six hours.
Two other Day 1A players finished their flight with more than two-million chips in front of them. The 2,250,437 stack of “OelaPaloema” was enough for second-place in the overnight standings while the 2,057,245 of “buck21” placed them third right now.
Congratulations to STDCALLRANGEXD who finished in the top 10 chip counts courtesy of their 1,576,066 stack in addition to being fourth in chips in the $1,050 Main Event.
KO Series #21 – Micro Main Event Day 1A Top 10 Chip Counts
The $11 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed Micro Main Event drew in a crowd of 2,679 players and only 402 of them punched their Day 2 tickets at the first attempt.
Each of the players who finished in the top 10 at the close of play return to the action armed with stacks containing more than two-million betting tokens!
Nobody accumulated more chips than “Stro” and their 2,755,739 stack, although two other partypoker grinders finished with more than 2.7 million chips. “bigmoneysundays” is currently in second place courtesy of a 2,724,767 stack while “selectedgolem” finds themselves in third place with 2,718,637 chips.
