The brilliant Bounty Builder Series gets under way on PokerStars this Sunday, promising guaranteed prize pools of more than $30 million through its 213 events.

What might not be immediately apparent is that though the guarantees have gone up compared with the previous two Bounty Builder Series, the overall buy-ins have gone down. It means more bang for your buck; a series appealing to players of all levels and bankrolls, but with the chance to win some life-changing sums.

Mix it up with some mixed games

Expect Mason “pyefacepoker” Pye to play — and stream — the mixed games

The vast majority of Bounty Builder Series events are no limit hold’em (90 of 113, to be precise). It makes sense. It’s the world’s most popular variant, and it’s especially good for the bounty knockout format. But if you fancy something a little more exotic, there are also 23 tournaments played in different variants during this Bounty Builder Series: PLO, NLO8, 5-Card PLO, 6+ (short-deck), 8-Game and HORSE. There are also seven Total KO tournaments (meaning all the prize pool goes on bounties), two of which are heads-up Zoom events. Try these for size:

October 11: Event #8: $109 NLO8 6-Max, $60K Gtd
October 13: Event #36: $55 6+ Hold’em 6-Max, Turbo, $25K Gtd
October 16: Event #78: 8-Game, 8-Max, $20K Gtd
October 19: Event #118: $55 NLHE Heads-Up, Turbo, Zoom Total KO, $80K Gtd
October 20: Event #135: $109 HORSE, $40K Gtd
October 23: Event #177: $109 5-Card PLO 8-Max, $35K Gtd
October 25: Event #206: $215 PLO 6-Max, $100K Gtd
