re: Poker & Bounty Tourneys
If you watch poker on Television, one of the tourneys, (I think it was in the WPT Shooting Stars of Poker) was a bounty tourney. In this case, all the big name professionals had a bounty on their head. I think it was a way to get more 'dead money' by giving non ITM hopefuls a way to recoup some of their entry fee. If the someone knocked out a poker professional who had a bounty, they got I think $1000 and a T-Shirt. During the episode, they show poker stars signing the T-Shirts. I think it was Phil Ivey who was the only one left at the final table to be knocked out, and an amateur did it, so they show him asking for a signature after beating the guy...
The one at the Orleans had a bounty on every player. So if you knocked anyone out you received $5. At the Orleans, basicly they give you a card and then the manager comes and gives you a $5 chip. I still have thje grimy one they gave me for the first guy I knocked out.
Does anyone know any other B&M Casinos
that offer bounty Tourneys?
The one at the Orleans is every day and they get quite a few entrants. The late ones on the weekend are not bounty tourney's though. They are really fun and I would encourage you to play if you can find one.
