Classic VS Progressive
Show your skills and grab that bounty!
A Bounty tournament is a format in which a player gets rewarded for eliminating another player ( “claiming their bounty”). In most standard format Bounty events, your buyin is typically split 50/50. In the 50/50 example, half the buyin goes to the prize pool, the other half becomes a bounty on each players head. If you reach the money positions, then you will be paid an additional cash prize from the prize pool depending on where you finished. If you go on to win the tournament, you not only claim your 1st place prize plus the bounties for the players you eliminated, you also get your own $1 bounty back!
Progressive Bounty Tournament
A Progressive Bounty tournament is similar to the standard bounty format, however it has a twist! In a progressive, your bounty is split even further with a percentage paid immediately when you eliminate another player and the remaining amount is then added to your own head making you a bigger target for your opponents. As you progress through the tournament, you’ll start seeing opponents with big bounties on their heads. Knock them out to claim half their fat bounty right away with the other half going on your head. If you reach the money positions, then you will be paid an additional cash prize from the prize pool depending on where you finished. If you go on to win the tournament, you not only claim your 1st place prize plus the bounties for the players you eliminated, you also get your own bounty back (this could be a big amount depending on how many players you eliminated)!
