Online communities battle it out this Thursday, with guarantee boosted to $20,000
Online communities will go head to head once again in the partypoker Community Poker Knockout, where for the second time, famous faces carry special bounties on their heads.
Following the success of the inaugural partypoker Community Poker Knockout in June, this month’s edition takes place at partypoker on July 29, 2021, at 19:00 BST.
The Community Poker Knockout is a monthly progressive knockout tournament that any registered partypoker player can enter, and includes players from a total of 11 online communities. Each participating community selects one special bounty player, who carries a $50 bounty on their head for any player who can knock them out.
On top of this, if a special bounty player is knocked out by a player from the same community, the winning player will also be able to claim an exclusive prize offered by their community. These special prizes include an Xbox Series S, a PS5, a gaming laptop, $500 cash, $500 to spend on tournaments, and a £500 tech bundle.
PDC World Darts Championship Winner Gerwyn Price Is Playing!
One such player carrying a special bounty will be this year’s PDC World Darts Championship winner and former rugby union and rugby league player Gerwyn Price, who will be representing community forum The Poker Page.
Gerwyn will be joined by actor Shaun Williamson, who viewers may know better as Barry Evans from soap opera EastEnders. Shaun is representing betting community FootyAccums.
Meanwhile, four-time super-middleweight world boxing champion and Team partypoker member Carl Froch will once again be participating on behalf of the partypoker community.
Froch Ready For a Knockout of a Different Kind
Carl said: “I’m looking forward to getting in the mix for the partypoker Community Knockout tournament again; this time with a $20,000 prize pool. There’s $500 in tournament dollars up for grabs for knocking me out and lots of other great prizes if you are part of the communities, so come and have a go!”
Any partypoker player can enter, but to be eligible to win the special prizes, players need to sign up with any of the 11 communities that will be participating via their Facebook and Twitter pages.
The bounty prizes and additional prizes can only be claimed on social media. All players need to do is take a screenshot of their winning hand, share it with their community on social media and make sure they tag partypoker.
In addition to the bounty prizes, the minimum guarantee has been given a significant boost from $5,000 to $20,000, for the same $5.50 buy-in, giving even better value to players.
The tournament will be streamed from start to finish on partypokerTV — partypoker’s Twitch channel.
Last month’s partypoker Community Knockout was won by Artem Kharitohov. The Russia-based player placed first out of 1,726 entrants to win $1,209.04.
If players do not currently have a partypoker account, they can set one up by following an exclusive link provided by their community, and they can enter the partypoker Community Poker Knockout for free.
