At the weekend, server issues were causing big problems with partypoker, so some KO Series majors had to be stopped.

Actually, it should come on Sunday to the big final of the partypoker KO Series. To celebrate this, a number of ‘Championship’ events were offered to welcome the new $ 10 million weekly weekly schedule.

This should not happen, because around 21:00 it came to a system crash, which led to the stop of cash games, SNGs and tournaments. Affected players will be compensated, but apparently only the accumulated buy-ins, not the total amount including the guarantee.

Partypoker Managing Director, Tom Waters, apologized for the inconvenience and said: 

It was equally a disaster for the players and us on the evening of our biggest PKO tournaments of all time and the new Power Series. I can understand if some of the players are not returning directly to partypoker because of the experiences during those hours, and so we expect some overlays in the new Power Series MTTs. However, the new Power Series will start as planned and the guaranteed prize pools will not be reduced.

There are also additional MTTs and higher guaranteed prize pools for these Sunday events within the Power Series tournament schedule. In total, the guaranteed prize pools will be increased by $ 2,000,000 next Sunday.

2 Million USD more next Sunday

The additional guarantees are staggered as follows:

  • An additional $ 1,000,000 is guaranteed by PKO at 8:00 pm with a buy-in of $ 5,200
  • The $ 20,000 Power Series Super Sunday Bounty Hunter, with a buy-in of $ 215, will receive a $ 1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool instead of $ 200,000. This will run alongside the $ 215 Super Sunday Main Event at 6 pm with a $ 500,000 guarantee
  • Doubled the $ 100,000 guarantee to $ 200,000 in the Power Series Super Sunday Bounty Hunter at 8pm with a buy-in of $ 55
  • $ 20,000 guaranteed prize pool of the $ 11 Bounty Hunter at $ 20,000 to $ 50,000
  • The three fancy Ladies KO events will be repeated once on Sunday at 8pm as Ladies Power Series MTTs
