Do these events offer you the best chance of a bounty bonanza?

February 03, 2020inPoker

Gather round aspiring bounty hunters. It’s time for two full weeks of PKO madness.

There are 180 tournaments on the Bounty Builder Series schedule. We’ve handpicked a selection of events that offer huge guarantees, intense structures and, most importantly, the biggest potential for knockouts.

The Bounty Builder Series takes no prisoners, and neither should you.


Total knockouts for maximum bounties

Every tournament in the Bounty Builder Series is progressive knockout format. Usually, half of the buy-in goes towards your bounty and the other half towards the regular prize pool.

For those who want to take it one step further, you can also find a handful of progressive total knockouts.

In total knockout tournaments, your entire buy-in goes towards the bounty. There’s no regular prize pool for cashing, just huge bounties for busting players. With double the reward, these are the perfect game for getting those big knockout scores.

You can find a total of eight progressive total knockout events in the series, including three with a heads-up Zoom format. Look out for them on the Bounty Builder tab. Highlights include:


Bounty Builder Series 129 (Progressive Total KO) – $109 – $175k guaranteed
February 12. 19:00 WET

Bounty Builder Series 152 (Progressive Total KO, Heads-up Zoom) – $109 – $100k guaranteed
February 14. 19:30 WET


One of a kind PKO Shootout

Another poker variation that lends itself well to knockouts is the shootout.

In a shootout tournament, players battle to beat the table and advance to the next round. This continues until there is only the final table left, and then one eventual winner. Naturally, this involves a lot of potential for big knockouts along the way.

With only one shootout style tournament in the series, you really don’t want to miss this:


Bounty Builder 044 (Shootout, 6-Max) – $109 – $75k guaranteed
February 5. 19:30 WET


Crazy fast KOs

Quick question for tournament players? What format of game is notorious for all-ins and fast knockouts?

That’s right champ, it’s turbos and hyper turbos. The blinds force the action and short stacked players have no choice but to make their move. It’s a bounty hunter’s dream!

The Bounty Builder Series has dozens of turbo events, so let’s ramp it straight up and take a look at the hyper turbos. Gather a big stack in one of these, and you could be on for the bounty bonanza of your life:
