thats the most important thing to realize, when playing these KO-tourneys..
Of course its nice to knockout some ppl to get a "free buyin" or whatever.. BUT you should always remember that theres still a prizepool, and you should concentrate on winning the tournament, not knocking out as many ppl as you can.
Because like you said, others tend to be much looser in these games, because THEY want to knockout ppl..
You simply need to adjust your strategy towards those "bountyhunters" and win 75% of their buyins, not just a 25% bounty..
