upeshka was the last player standing in the $320 buy-in New Year Kick Off event, a $300,000 guaranteed tournament that saw $428,100 paid out. The overall champion collected $27,105 from the main prize pool plus an additional bounty payment worth $24,429 - a superb score indeed!

All seven finalists earned at least $7,600 which ended up in their partypoker accounts, with the top 5 finishers winning five-figure prizes.

A load of KO Series satellites runs through the entire series, but you may also want to check out the KO Series SPINS. They only cost $10 to join yet award either $20 cash or KO Series tickets worth between $33 and $2,100!

There are also many other KO Series satellites running each day, giving you the chance to turn a small investment into a major poker title and a bankroll-boosting prize.

I only want to congratulate the winners. For sure, this win is a good money and for sure he must be happy with this win. Maybe this was a win from a small cheap satellite, or from a free ticket that he get through one of the promotion. Looks like this is really a good to start New Year with such a win. I think he must be anyway a good poker player, because i think you need to have some poker skills to be able to play well and especially to win it. PartyPoker as usual makes a really good knockout Series!

with this kind of buy in I would expect more play and bigger money in this kind of tournament,especially because you win money on both sides,from prize pool and from KO from players!when you see you didnt have even 1500 players on this kind of tournament,which I would expect!I know that I played some of poker stars tournaments last days and there you can find lot more players with lower buy in and with bigger prize pool,also KO series!
but ofcourse this is very nice first prize!

It is truly a remarkable performance for this player and can only happen once in a lifetime for many players. Professional gamblers can more easily achieve these 1st positions, but the others is very hard to succeed 2-3 times. Anyway, is very good for him.

These great tournaments are the ones that literally change your life, congratulations to this player in winning 51 thousand dollars, it is not easy, the ko series came to offer us these great prizes, the tournaments are accessible to many players, I think always partypoker I care about their clients rather than themselves, I say this because of the great tournaments they offer each year.

Nice win for Upeshka , first place prie and a nice bounty , $50K now his own money , congratulations to him ., These KO series running these days on PartyPoker is an excellent opportunity to make much money playing your favourite poker games . I see many satellites , I will play some in the micros , I hope I will be lucky , good luck everyone Smile

I think everyone like this Knockout series tournaments just because you can have some easy money just for knocking out some players. Even if you don,t finish in the money you can have some cash just for knock-out someone from the tournament. Especially this can be good for players, who won the place in the tournament from a couple cheap satellites. For sure this can be good for them to get some easy money for the bankroll, even if they can,t play well at some kind of tournaments.
 CALICUL08/01/2021 22:11:25 GMT
I like these knockout tournaments and i will see on Saturday and Sunday what options i have to play. When in a game are more players it is the best, because you can hope for a better gain. It's beautiful anyway. A win like Upeshka is unreal to me.
 geseco1209/01/2021 04:32:49 GMT
Congratulations to this player, there are still great tournaments for KO series that still do not end, you always have to be persistent in poker, because one does not know when that big prize can arrive for a player who is just starting, which is enough to keep your poker game professional.
 CALICUL09/01/2021 22:20:14 GMT
I think it's about this player and if I'm right, then we shouldn't be surprised that he won 1st place in a party game tournament.
Upeshka De Silva is a Sri Lankan-American professional poker player from Katy, Texas. A three-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner, in 2020 made final table of WSOP Main Event.

This year has been very good for many, winning that amount of money makes it easier for you to professionalize poker, I hope you have a head to grow in the world of playing cards, and do not lose it so fast, you should study hard so that your game is a winner , the ko series are pretty good this year there is a lot of money in jackpots that blows away.
 CALICUL10/01/2021 23:15:59 GMT
What annoys me a lot in poker tournaments is that some players receive a lot of good cards. This thing leads them to final table and sometimes 1st place. I don't know what happens with that software because they are so favored many times. At my level I could do more but luck does not come. For professional it's different.
 geseco1211/01/2021 04:47:28 GMT
What a good start for this player, winning that amount of money is important, he will already have a bank to play at high levels and climb to the top, sometimes poker gives you these things that sometimes are not explained instantly but later you realize that every effort, every tear, every sacrifice was worth it, I think this player and all those who win big prizes know it, always keep going and congratulations.
 CALICUL12/01/2021 00:44:02 GMT
It's not a start for him because he's a professional player with bracelets earned in his career and other money placements. This tournament helped him to accumulate more money for his games in this poker room Party. The performance is remarkable.

Talented and ambitious players like Upeshka earn money and their dedication is very interesting. They waste a lot of time following and learning strategies, then play and earn serious money. Online poker can be greatly invigorated if certain methods are taken and players can qualify for tournaments much more easily via satellite. Then they can play cash for good money, but of course it's hard if we don't learn like this good player.
 CALICUL15/10/2021 12:44:02 GMT
I don't know why poker it is no longer so promoted as in previous years, but there are probably many players and it is no longer so necessary. Great gamblers have great results and they can be made more often available to the public, for attraction of customers. Upeshka proved that it is possible and each of us must take lessons from such professionals.
 CALICUL22/11/2021 23:50:27 GMT
who knows how has results, and here proves a talent of the player who manages a good star. There are always notable winners or results, and in this case this player started well. Now I don't know if it's ok, but I think he's doing well.
