How Long Can You Stay King of the Hill at Sky Poker?
Sky Poker has launched an innovative and exciting new tournament to its schedule called The King of the Hill, which could be extremely profitable for UK & Ireland PokerNews readers.
The King of the Hill tournament debuted in May and is based on the “winner stays on” concept. Every night at 21:00, the King of the Hill tournament kicks off and gives someone the chance of winning hundreds of pounds every night until they are knocked from their lofty perch.
The tournament only costs £7.50 to enter and the buy-in is split as follows:
- £ 5 goes into the King of the Hill Tournament prize pool (21:00 that night)
- £2 goes into the King of the Hill Heads-up Match (20:30 the following night)
- £0.50 paid as tournament fees.
The tournament plays out as any other multi table tournament does, but it has one major difference. The winner of the nightly King of the Hill tournament also wins a seat to the King of the Hill Heads-Up Match the following night where they play the winner of the previous heads-up match for the prize pool generated!
For example, on Monday night 250 players buy into the King of the Hill tournament, creating a prize pool of £1,250 for the tournament and an additional £500 for the Heads-up match. The winner of Monday night’s King of the Hill Tournament plays the winner of the Sunday night heads-up match. Whoever wins the heads-up match stays on and plays the next challenger until they are beaten!
It should be easy to see that this tournament format has the potential to be extremely profitable indeed. All you would need to do is win one or two of the heads-up tournaments in a row and you would be quids in!
