What to expect from PokerStars PA

In Pennsylvania, the series features a $1.5 million guarantee. The progressive knockout (PKO) schedule offers players 75 events with buy-ins starting at $10

For those new to a PKO, the variant offers a unique version of a bounty tournament. Like a traditional bounty, a player knocking out another player earns some extra bucks for the elimination.

However in a PKO, a portion of that bounty is also added to the winner’s bounty. This makes players’ bounties increase throughout the tournament with larger bounty amounts on the line later.

The progressive bounty aspect adds some extra twists to a bounty tournament. The events have become popular with players for this extra fun thrown in the tournament mix.

The $200 Main Event is set for March 7 featuring a guaranteed prize pool of $150,000. Players can also look forward to two special editions of the Sunday Special each with $100,000 guaranteed. Those events are set for Feb. 21 and 28.

On Feb. 24, players with bigger bankrolls can check out the $1,000 Super High Roller with $75,000 guaranteed. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
