Try out Both Types of Knock out Tournament
A standard Knock-out tournament requires players to contribute a small amount of the required tournament buy in fee to the special bounty pot and when players are eliminated, a bounty is paid in the form of a cash prize to the person who succeeded in eliminating the player from the tournament.
A progressive Knock-out tournament is even more exciting as the person who has succeeded in ‘knocking out’ a player sees his or her personal bounty increased with every successful ‘hit’ making that player an even greater target. The tournament becomes a thrilling multi-table poker ‘hunt’ which really gets the adrenalin flowing as you attempt to stay ahead of your opponents who have their eyes on you and the ever growing bounty sitting on your head.
The bounty prize is in addition to the usual tournament wins giving some extra spice to a fabulous PokerStars tournament. Register your new account now with PokerStars by clicking on our link below.
