Running concurrently with the GG Online Championship, partypoker’s MILLIONS Online Knockout Edition presents over $6M in prizes across its 71-tournament schedule. The 25-day series is set to run through the 30th with a $1M GTD Main Event to highlight the festival. While the combined prize pool is much smaller than that of the GGOC, players can expect smaller fields and a high probability for overlays. 

Buy-ins for the series range from $109 to as high as $1,050 for the MILLIONS Online KO #08 Main Event. Considering this price tag may be too heavy for lesser bankroll players, the MILLIONS Online KO #09 Mini Main Event, $500K GTD which runs on a similar structure may be the perfect alternative. Both events will run six starting flights each with two champions crowned on the series’ concluding day. Full schedule of events is up on partypoker’s official website and can be viewed here.
