It is a bounty game, basically part of your buyin adds a bounty on your head. The common 1.35 on stars I think .25 becomes a bounty on your head so if your know someone out you get this bounty (.25) into your account.
Perhaps the biggest leak in playing a bounty game is to play it any different than a regular game, with exception being to be aware that players will sometimes call an all-in just to try and collect a bounty (look at this good and bad). In general take into considering that sometimes you may get called a little lighter and just play a general tag approach with adjustments throughout no different than any other tournament. If you play well enough the bounties will build, but in general you still want to play to win the tournament because that is where your going to make the $$ generally.
