BetMGM Poker USA Closes Out 2021 with New Year Knockout Mini-Series – Pokerfuse

December 30, 2021 by No Comments

BetMGM Poker USA is ringing in the New Year with a slate of progressive knockout tournaments in its New Year Knockout Weekend. The mini-series is running on all of the network’s jurisdictions, namely, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey.

The tournaments are running across all of partypoker US network sites: BetMGM, Borgata Poker, and partypoker US.

The weekend starts early, with events kicking off on Wednesday December 29, and running through until Sunday, January 2. A PKO tournament runs every day throughout that period with two being spread on the final day.

Luke Staudenmaier, BetMGM’s Director of Poker said, “New Year Knockout Weekend helps end this year and ring in the new one with a celebration of one of the most entertaining formats in poker.”

Each event follows the same format, with half the buy-in going to the prize pool and half to the bounty (after tournament fees). Promotional material states that players can win additional prizes for knocking out rivals, although the details of these are not specified.

Buy-Ins to Suit All Pockets

There is a wide spectrum of buy-ins — ranging from the date-appropriate $20.22 on New Year’s Day to the $1060 high roller on January 2. In between these two extremes, the operator is offering two tournaments under $100 — a $55 8-Max event and a $109 Turbo tournament.

The two remaining contests on the schedule are a $320 8-Max and $215 8-max which rounds off the series. All tournaments are No Limit Hold’em events.

The tournament formats and buy-ins are the same in all three states, although guarantees vary slightly between each one, with New Jersey, surprisingly perhaps, having the largest prize pools. Full details are listed in the table below.
