The 888poker Knockout Games series is in full swing and nine 888poker players have already become champions. There are a total of 44 events on the busting PKO schedule, but one event, in particular, stands out from the crowd and it is not the Main Event, for once.
Event #22 is the $150,000 guaranteed Tune Up PKO, which shuffles up and deals at , this coming Sunday! It commands a $160 buy-in, of which $75 goes into the main prize pool and $75 goes into the bounty prize pool. Eliminate an opponent from the Tune Up PKO event and you instantly win half their bounty and the remaining 50% goes onto your head, making you a more attractive target for your opponents.
However, there is one player who everyone is gunning for and 888poker Cultural Ambassador, Chris Eubank Jr is that man. Not only will knocking out Eubank Jr give you a story to tell your friends, the boxing star's scalp also comes with a Las Vegas pacakge worth a cool $13,000!
Nobody has managed to knock Eubank Jr out in his 34 professional fight career, will you be the person he sends him to the canvas in this event and then jets off to fabulous Las Vegas on 888poker's dime? Here's hoping.
