The KO Series kicked off on December 25 and the first events have seen two of their three starting flights completed. Day 1C of the Christmas Openers shuffles up and deals at 16:05 GMT on December 27 with Day 2 taking place at 20:05, where we will see the first KO Series champions crowned.
KO Series #1 – Christmas Opener Top 10 Chips Counts
“sunrunn3r” is the player to catch after two of the three flights in the $215 buy-in Christmas Opener. Some 863 players have bought in so far and $172,600 of the $250,000 guaranteed prize pool has been collected.
Only 129 of those entrants are through to Day 2 and nobody has more chips than “sunrunn3r”. They return to the action armed with 2,510,279 chips and has already collected $443.75 in bounty payments.
Three more players finished their flights with more than two million chips. “Fabrice Soulier” has 2,253,278 chips and $150 in bounties, “SalvadorShkryab” has 2,129,366 chips and $450 worth of scalps, while “SirShake” has 2,086,539 chips and an impressive $637.50 from the bounty prize pool.
KO Series #1 – Mini Christmas Opener Top 10 Chips Counts
The Mini Christmas Opener is shaping up to be massive as the guarantee has already been smashed with one flight remaining. A field of 3,321 players have created a prize pool of $66,420 with Day 1C waiting in the wings.
“Palsgaard1” is in the envious position of chip leader right now and their chip tally is going to take some catching. They finished their Day 1 with a mountain of chips worth 3,227,305 and $73.75 from the bounty prize pool. Unsurprisingly, that is the most anyone has scooped from this event so far.
KO Series #1 – Micro Christmas Opener Top 10 Chips Counts
The Micro Christmas Opener looks set to obliterate its guarantee as $6,776 of the advertised $7,500 has already been collected with 3,388 players buying in across Day 1A and 1B.
“Lewiston18” forged a huge lead for themselves, ending their flight with a handful of chips under four million! Their 3,999,572 stack has 1.3 million more chips than any of the surviving players in this $2.20 buy-in tournament. The chip leader is freerolling into the money places having amassed $10.54 worth of bounties on their way to claiming that lead.
