Build Up Your Bankroll in Bounty Builder Week at PokerStars
While it’s true that modern society can see all sorts of bizarre and sometimes unpleasant trends crop up under the guise of fashionable thought, the world of real money online poker can be relied upon to be pretty accurate when it comes to what poker variants or game formats are the most popular.
As far as online poker tournaments are concerned, every poker fan and his/her dog seems to have at least tried Bounty tournaments at some point in their journey. Indeed, for many, this particular type of game is a firm favourite, with converts migrating from Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash tables and Sit & Go games to go bounty-hunting...
When Knockout tournaments first appeared in online poker, some operators acted quicker than others in their efforts to both accurately anticipate and subsequently satisfy potential (and now very real) demand, with PokerStars in particular having its finger on the poker pulse. That a tournament format which allows players to win money in the form of rewards for eliminating their rivals, without even having to make the actual prizes, might seem rather obvious. But the battle to attract players means putting together an overall KO tournament player experience that is both entertaining and practical, which is easier said than done.
PokerStars has managed to find an excellent balance, and if you’re yet to have had the pleasure, then you might wish to get involved in their latest Knockout venture, namely their Bounty Builder Week which, for those in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, will be an extra special treat.
Exclusively devoted to fast-paced Progressive KO (PKO) action, this week-long (7-14 May) series boasts €1,750,000 in total guaranteed prize money.
Players in France, Spain and Portugal can make the most of an enhanced schedule of PKO events, with over €1,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools up for grabs. Sunday’s opening headliner is the €100,000 GTD 8-Max Sunday Major, while there are four events every night, including the €50,000 GTD Primetime Battle. The week culminates with the €200,000 GTD Main Event on 14 May...
Meanwhile, those in Italy can look forward to PKO tournaments being added to the weekly schedule during Bounty Builder Week, the festival paying out over €750,000 in total guaranteed prize money and some tasty bounties to be had. Note that the Bounty Builder Week Main Event comes with a €150,000 guarantee!
