re: Poker & Bounty games
I dislike them. There are essentially two payouts.
To win the tournament payout you want to get as many chips as possible with as little risk as possible
To win $ from bounties you need to bust as many people as possible.
Each of these requires a different strategy.
On FT 50% doesn't go to the bounty. I thought just $1 of a $5 buy in or something like that? I remember winning a tournament, knocking out like 6 people, and thinking that it was weird that I barely made a buy-in with knock out bounties.
The bounties just seem like a boobie prize for people who are going to get knocked out anyway. I'd prefer that these people leave the money for the higher finishing players.
Anyway, I don't like them and actually have them filtered out on Full Tilt, so I don't hit them anymore.
