partypoker Launches Progressive KO Tournaments and a New Cash Game

  • partypoker launches progressive knockout tournaments and Fast Five cash games.

Tournament and cash games players at Partypoker each have a new and exciting format to play after Progressive Knockout tournaments and Fast Five cash games were added to the client.

Progressive Knockout tournaments, also called progressive bounty tournaments, are a popular variant in the online poker world thanks in part to giving players the chance to win large sums of money without the need to cash in the actual tournament.

As the name suggests, each player starts the tournament with a bounty on their heads and this bounty increases every time they eliminate an opponent, which makes that player a more attractive target for the rest of the table. If a player wins the tournament, they not only scoop the first-place prize but also their own bounty, which by this stage will likely be quite large.

Initially, partypoker is running Progressive Knockout tournaments three times per day, although it is likely that more will be added to the schedule in the coming weeks.

Fast Five cash games

Fast Five cash games are six-handed no limit hold’em cash games where players sit down with only five big blinds, leading to fast and furious action. Some of partypoker’s rivals offer this cash game variant, including 888poker who call theirs “Push or Fold”.

Tom Waters, the Group Head of partypoker, said about the new poker games: “Today we launch two new products on partypoker that will suit both tournament and cash game players. Progressive Knockout tournaments are a popular format in the poker community so it was important to respond to feedback and offer these on partypoker. Fast Five is a fun, fast-paced cash game, suitable for players with only a short amount of time but wanting action quickly.”

Try out the new Progressive Knockout tournaments and Fast Five cash games by Partypoker via UK & Ireland PokerNews and making a deposit using the bonus code “UKPNEWS16” and partypoker will match your initial deposit 100% up to £250.
