This weekend's Sunday Million will be a PKO

For one time only the Sunday Million and Sunday Storm will be Progressive Knockout tournaments.

One of the most consistent poker tournaments in online poker has been experimenting a lot recently, first the Sunday Million reduced its buy-in and now this weekend for the first time ever will be a Progressive Knockout tournament. 

In what is being called Knockout Sunday, ten Sunday Majors at PokerStars will be PKOs, most notably the Sunday Million, Sunday Warm-up and Sunday Storm. 

The Million will once again be at the $109 buy-in with $50 added to the bounty pool and an initial scalp of $25 for busting an opponent. One re-entry will be available.

This Sunday's PKO edition of the Million

PKO tournaments have been quickly increasing in popularity over the last few years at all poker rooms, with PokerStars and partypoker both offering special series dedicated to PKOs. Both 888poker and partypoker have hosted Sunday Major Main Events in this format before, but this is the first time PokerStars have done so. 

PokerStars are also poised to host the 13th Anniversary edition of the Sunday Million, with $1 million guaranteed to the winner and back at the old price point of $215.

    Well, the really problem with KO tournaments is: Variance raise a lot, cause people call wide to get bounty, and with 10-15BB you should have a lot of FE yet, you dont have anymore.
