It's only the start of this week and newly introduced first member of partypoker's Team Online Matt Staples is already taking down his opponents in "The Gladiator", the poker company's latest tourney in their PKO Power series.
The Gladiator PKO
The Gladiator is an all-new progressive knockout (PKO) Power Series online tournament launched on January 27, 2019 (Sunday) at 20:00 CET, featuring big bounties and even bigger guarantees for players. It runs daily at 20:00 CET, and players can participate in different buy-ins of $2.20, $5.50, $22, $55 with a high stakes $320 buy-in entering the fray on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
GTD prize pools range from $3,000 for just a $2.20 buy-in up to a massive $200,000 for a $320 investment for the Sunday tournament of The Gladiator tournament.
Players can re-enter once in The Gladiator tournaments, so if you get knocked out, pick up your cards and step back into the arena. The possibility of the bounties in The Gladiator can become big because the generous partypoker will take absolutely No Rake on the bounty element of any of their PKO tournaments!
Matt Staples turns his $320 investment into $2,253
On the Sunday edition of The Gladiator, a total of 260 players entered the battle arena.
The 22-year-old Canadian made a deep run on the tournament, placing 12th out of 260 players, turning his buy-in of $320 into $2253 - a very nice achievement considering it's only his first day as a partypoker online pro.
