The biggest Festival Online event of this weekend was the Progressive Knockout tournament with a buy-in of $109. It attracted 1,072 entries and played out more than $107,000 in prize money. On Sunday the tournament was stopped after the final nine players were found and they returned Monday night to play out the next big title of The Festival Online. The final table was streamed live on 888poker's Twitch Channel with David Tuchman and Nick Wealthall commenting the action and offering several giveaways for all viewers.

After two hours of play, the last two players were found as Canada's skelly929 was eliminated in third place when he jammed K-Q into A-Q and couldn't find any help on the board.

The heads-up between dududantas95 from Brazil and Germany's DorianZimmer lasted more than 40 minutes – a small eternity in the online poker world. In the end, the German prevailed and in the final hand (screenshot above) he was all-in with Q-Q against A-4. The board ran out T-8-4-K-7 – no help for the ace and DorianZimmer earned $7,177 in prize money plus all the bounties he collected during his run which added up to another $6,748.
