PartyPoker will host the New Year KO Series
PartyPoker has announced the New Year KO Series that will run from December 25 to January 19. This series is clearly not one of those series that aim to set record guarantees, but nevertheless, it is popular among poker players due to the PKO format.
In the fall, PartyPoker hosted the Monster Series with a similar format, which was quite successful. The festival brought together a large number of participants. Now, PartyPoker players will have the opportunity to try their hand in the KO Series.
