Leonard and Urbanovich Run Deep in KO Series

Just as a dog is not a gift just for Christmas, so the biggest online series are not just for the Sunday grinders – and partypokers $30million KO Series was an excellent example of that yesterday, with Patrick Leonard and Dzmitry Urbanovich both in the Tuesday evening money!

Midweek tournaments in the KO Series may not have the $1million Championship tag flying above them, but the PKO format and overall excellent prizes ensure they have at least as much excitement and drama.

The $2100 buy-in High Roller, last night for example, saw $500,000 guaranteed and a sweet $45k overlay for the 222 players who entered, with zero rake on the $233k of bounty money up for grabs.

There were quite a few big online pros running deep, but not everyone has a real-life name attached to them – Denmark’s Beeeetelgeuse and Croatia’s SouhftfW good examples, ever-present as the money increases.

No final table for them last night though, but partypoker’s own Patrick Patrick_Leonard Leonard was there, and a 6th spot finish was good for $12,728.

The win went to another anonymous crusher, Austria’s Alien_Army, chopping the regular prizepool for $43k but adding some $45k in bounties for an excellent night’s work.

Another of partypoker’s Team pros was representing in the $1050 buy-in, $250k GTD High Roller – Dzmitry Dzmitry_Urbanov Urbanovich eventually coming 7th behind the winner savageplenty, the latter walking off with just under $50,000.

With partypoker’s MILLIONS LIVE North America kicking off in Montreal this week, some of the biggest names were otherwise occupied at the tables, but it didn’t stop more than 900 runners taking to the $320 buy-in, $250k GTD 8-max High Roller.

Brazil’s muhhamadALLIN scooped the title and almost $40,000, edging out Sweden’s zupsherlock who can be happy with a $22k+ Tuesday payday.

With five days of the partypoker KO Series still to run, including a massive Sunday finale with over $7million on the line this weekend, there’s still time to get yourself in the big money…Ireland’s favourite girl Louise Butler just did!
