€13,000 PKO Poker Tournament

The Chip Race podcast has always been a knockout, and now the award-winning podcast will have its own Progressive Bounty tournament as a warm-up to the UOS XIII.

This game is a chance to play against the Unibet Ambassadors and hosts of The Chip Race; it has a €50 buyin, with €13k guaranteed, using the 50% Progressive Bounty format.
