Of all formats presented in Playground festivals, bounty tournaments are probably the most popular. Everybody loves a bounty! There is something extremely gratifying in taking a value chip off a player that we just busted, and something very humbling in handing it over. It is the ultimate congratulatory gesture, and throwing it in the pot with a nod and some eye contact is worth a lot more than a simple: “nice hand!”
But the chase is what really gets most players! The bounty hunting, the little voice in your head that becomes louder when you’re playing a pot with a player who has fewer chips than you do.
The World Cup of Cards has 4 such events on the schedule. Let’s take a look at the list:
- Event #4: $100 + $20 + $100 6-Max 50/50 Bounty
Monday January 21
The 6-Max format calls for extra-aggressive play. Bounties are sure to fly!
- Event #7: $100 + $20 + $100 PL Omaha 50/50 Bounty Re-entry
Tuesday January 22
These bounties will spice up an already wild game. 4-card poker with a kick!
- Event #15: $100 + $20 + $100 Crazy Pineapple 8-Max 50/50 Bounty Re-entry
Wednesday January 30
An out-of-this-world combo! The Crazy variation of this 3-card game lets you hold on to all 3 cards until the flop betting round is completed. Play it 8-handed with bounties, and your head will spin!
- Event #26: $200 + $30 + $100 Bounty
Wednesday February 6
The traditional closing event. Most of our festivals close with a simple bounty event, one that usually attracts a vast crowd of players.
The World Cup of Cards is 5½ weeks out. 26 events, 4 bounty tournaments. Which ones will you play?
