Progressive Knockout tournaments, or Progressive KOs, are action-packed tourneys where you can win hundreds or even thousands of dollars at any moment! For every player you eliminate, you'll win a cash prize and your own bounty will increase, leading to a frantic finish where every hand can mean mega bucks.
For example, assume the bounty is split 50/50 between a cash reward and being added to a progressive bounty. If two players each with a bounty of $10 butt heads and one is eliminated, the winning player will receive $5 cash and have $5 added to their own bounty to make $15.
How much do I win per knockout?
Every time you knock out a player, you'll receive a portion of their bounty in cash. Players begin with a fixed starting bounty then have a progressive bounty added for each player they successfully eliminate. The longer you stay in the game, the higher the bounties become. By the end of the tournament, knocking a player out can mean winning hundreds or even thousands of dollars instantly!
What happens if a player is eliminated in a multi-way pot?
If more than one player is involved in a multi-way pot when another player is eliminated, the winner of the pot will scoop the bounty as long as they have the losing player covered. If the winning player has less chips than the eliminated player at the start of the hand, the player who wins the side pot against the eliminated player will win the bounty.
For example, player 1 has 10,000 chips, player 2 has 5,000 chips and player 3 has 1,000 chips, and all three go all in pre-flop. Player 1 holds KK, player 2 has QQ and player 3 has AA, with the board changing nothing. In this example, player 3 will win the main pot but because they have less chips than player 2, and the bounty will go to player 1 along with the side pot.
If two players have an identical hand in a multi-way pot where a player is eliminated, the bounty will be split evenly between them.
When will I receive the bounties I've won?
Immediately. As soon as you knock a player out, their bounty will be credited to your account in cash.
Are the top places still paid?
Yes! In addition to any winnings you pocket from knocking people out, you'll also receive prize money just like any other tournament so you can expect to receive a tidy sum if you finish in the top few spots.
If you win the tournament outright, you'll not only win your opponent's bounty but your own as well, plus regular prize money and all the collective bounties you've accrued from knockouts so there's a huge payday for the winner of any Progressive KO tourney.
