Learn and play the game for fun and win some cool prizes - all the casino action without the risk or the drive!
We've been hosting games since 2005; but we changed the format in July, 2009 and formally became Ho's KnockOut Poker with the mission of making the game fun and accessible to as many people as possible.
The game originally started as a freeze-out tournament, but has evolved into an "add-on/re-buy" format. Many different types of people play the game, with many different reasons for why they play. The game is set up with that in mind, and is meant to accommodate the different type of play as the game progresses.
It is an "add-on/re-buy" format until the final table, where it becomes a freeze-out tournament. This enables the casual player, that just wants to play and have fun, the opportunity to stay in longer.
It is a "knock out" tournament with the incentive to not be taken completely out of the game. The game is set up to "train" you to play longer in tournaments and make final tables more often. The blind periods are longer then most other games, with MORE hands played per blind.
