Joel Osteen Wins 2020 KO Series High Main Event for $66K |

KO Series 2022

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a KO Series High Main Event champion, and “Joel Osteen” is that person. Joel Osteen overcame a field of 1,915 entrants to turn their $320 investment into a bankroll-boosting $66,149.

Only 284 of the 1,915 starters made it through to Day 2, which took place on February 7. All Day 2 players secured a slice of the main prize pool, plus any bounties they collected along the way to the business end of the tournament.

Team partypoker’s Matthew Staples came unstuck in 136th place and walked away with $408 from the main prize pool plus $276 worth of bounties. He was the only Team partypoker to make it into Day 2.

Once the nine-handed final table was set nobody took home less than $6,310.

Ninth-place finisher “NotSoAtrong” netted more than that, however, because they collected a combined $8,863 thanks to $5,424 worth of scalps. “CaptainWook” won $6,310 for their exit in eighth before “FlopTurnFFS” and “nbRRR” fell by the wayside and padded their partypoker bankrolls with scores worth $8,711 and $10,824, respectively.

The pay jumps grew large at this point with fourth-place finisher “MaxLateReg_” collecting $14,875 but “Si1veiraa” reeling in an impressive $34,822 after falling in third. That massive haul was helped by Si1vieraa winning $12,213 from the bounty prize pool; only the champion won bounties.

Heads-up pitted “b_bernardinh0” and Joel Osteen in a one-on-one battle for the lion’s share of the $574,500 prize pool. The latter got the job done and their hands on a combined $66,149, leaving the runner-up to win $35,089.
