In general, I like them if you are lucky enough to eliminate some players, you already recover the value of the ticket, although sometimes because you want to get the reward of someone who goes all in I make you pay a hand that you shouldn't, that's my opinion, greetings

There are pros and cons to them. The payouts aren't as good in KO tourneys, but you can make your money back and more if you KO a few people. KO tourneys also tend to go a bit faster, though, which is good.

Very interesting and popular tournament format. It is necessary to play them in a special way, taking into account the knockout for the player

It's a pretty decent tournaments format, but I mostly prefer regular tournaments. The fact is that in such tournaments, players very often play stupidly with garbage, taking risks only for the sake of the bounty, and this is frankly annoying.

They have more interesting spots than the regular ones for sure.

My favorite kind of tournaments, but i think players tend to be more loose in more situations because of the bounties

For example, I don't really like playing K.O. tournaments, I prefer playing in a standard tournament with a late registration of no more than two hours.

It depends on the person, for example, I don't like these tournaments, when I started, I never won in K.O tournaments.
But it's a popular type of game, and it's no coincidence that there are so many such tournaments.
For me, it's more the negative experience, which is why I don't participate in this type of tourneys.

They are OK. I only play tournaments and these are a little different. On the up side (as people above have said) you can make back the entry fee without making the final table. On the down side its more difficult / risky to get people out of a pot with a shove as they might call for the bounty rather than being sure they will win.

I like them when I feel tilty. I can usually run through and make my buy-in back and freeroll for a little while, lol. I've played in an "on Demand" KO once, but they take so long to fill up.
Sometimes I plan these trny's in my weekly schedule as well, usually the $1K GTD at ACR. I think it's 3 or 4 bux, but it really depends on how much time I have and all that razz... That's a silly, stupid, little joke.

Hi,

I like KO tournaments very much. Especially PKO and mystery bounty tournaments.

Now the regular tournaments are becoming kind of rare and with low guarantees.

I love these kind of tournaments. A hero gets a knockout for himself only if he ends the tournament in first place, and given that the hero's stack is equal to the stacks of other players, and his chance to take first place is ⅙. The strategy in tournaments with progressive knockouts can vary quite a lot depending on from the stage of the tournament and has an interesting and complex dynamics - both for beginners and more experienced players.

I love also knockouts for the same reason you win the ticket and while you playing you can win some extra money by eliminate players before you get to the prizes.Like all the tournaments needs patience .The target of course is the big prize but any good place worth your time .That's my thoughts ;)

They are very exciting, unfortunately the game structure is very different from normal tournaments, and luck is needed more to play K.O.

I love to play KO and I'm lucky in the moves I watch the opponent who has less chip and attack him with precision

At the late stage, the bounty for opponents is inflated and it is very important not to blindly chase them. Many people forget about the fundamental rules of playing tournaments and take excessive risks for the sake of a knockout, although they can win much more money from the main prize pool.

Even though I don't have much of a track record in PKOs, they are fun and a good break from the norm.

For me, this is the best format of the tournament, you can win back the buy-in without getting into the ITM zone and that's cool
