The other side event that launched this evening is the €220 No Limit Texas Hold’em Knockout Event. Half of the prize pool is reserved for knockout bounties and the other half is played out regularly.
After the first four levels 91 players have registered and with the main event in the same room having almost 80 players left there is quite some clacking and shuffling of chips to be heard. This feels like a proper poker event now, something that many players here have not experienced in the past 18 months. It was about time!
