KO Series #03:-SHR: $300K Gtd 8-Max is one of the biggest events so far. A field of 147 players exchanged $2,100 for 50,000 chips and the chance to become a 2020 KO Series champion.
“Edoiler99” burst the bubble when the fell in 21st place, paving the way for a $2,908 min-cash plus bounties.
It looked like we were getting a 2020 KO Series champion with the famous orange diamond next to their alias. This is because Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard reached the final table. Unfortunately for Leonard, his impressive run ended in a fifth-place finish. A cool $9,432 was Leonard reward, a princely sum boosted by $8,596 worth of bounties.
A special mention goes to “PayAndPlay” who finished in third for a total of $25,656. PayAndPlay is a phenomenal player who hits final tables seemingly at will. “BuddyRW” and “Tree91” were the only players who outlasted PayAndPlay. The latter emerged victorious and banked $25,953 plus $35,650 from the bounty prize pool.

- Prize pool: $374,528
We had another Team partypoker member at the final table of the KO Series #03-H: $300K Gtd 8-Max. Team Online’s Hristivoje “All_In_PAV” Pavlovic was going great guns and reached his first 2020 KO Series final table. His appearance there was cut short when he busted in seventh-place. Pavlovic padded his bankroll with a prize weighing in at $6,006.
The final table was another star-studded affair, showing the lure of the 2020 KO Series. “Z-ENERGIES_” ran out of steam in sixth-place with “eGGplant” falling in third.
“Who I am” and “funkyfive” battled it out heads-up for the title and now massive final bounty payment. It was the latter who secured that, $33,453 to be exact, plus $24,548 for their victory.

Our Irish Team Online member Louise “lou045” Butler is another player reaching a 2020 KO Series final table. Butler navigated her way through the majority of the 1,969-strong crowd in the KO Series #08-M: $75K Gtd 6-Max event.
Butler put her $55 to good use as it returned $2,675 when she finally busted in fifth-place. It was a profitable night for Butler who also finished fifth in the $15K Gtd Daily Grind for $1,028.
Shoutout to the eventual champion “papainoel” who almost banked a five-figure prize. $5,446 was awarded for their first-place finish plus an additional $4,458 bounty payment for a total prize worth $9,904. A superb return on such a small buy-in showing everyone can win big at partypoker.
