This is a discussion on You prefer, Bounty builder or normal tournaments? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hello CC!:fight:
Personally, I like progressive KOs more, since in many tournaments I do not get to prizes but in these I can recover my entry
Both formats are equal to me ,I like playing on both, but if I had to pick one , I'd go with normal tournaments. Reason for me to go that is , it helps me do better when I'm playing at local home games I play in. "One buy-in, one shot, and one game." It motivates me to play when I say these to myself. So definately standard tourneys
Hi! I prefer the usual quiet games, where the blinds are slowly growing and there are not very many people. KO is usually played by more people. In KO, players play more risky because they want to beat out others .I like to play KO when I pass through a satellite to expensive tournament or KO from various series, where there are big prizes and a very long registration, so I don't want to sit for a long time in vain.
I prefer normal tournaments to bounty tournaments. In bounty tournaments, I feel I don't play enough aggressively, so my profit from bounty tournaments is not good like normal tournaments. Though I still like bounty tournaments and play them sometimes.

I like both types of tournaments, I have no problem playing it, but between both I prefer a normal tournament, and I say it because in those KO tournaments the players go crazy for the rewards, they do not care to bet with what they have to see if they win the bounty, I am not going to deny that they are good at recovering the entrance, but generally when I play them, I do not think about winning the bounty because that is when mistakes are made
I prefer bounty tournaments because we have more opportunity to make profitable our game thanks to the bonuses. it's also a format that favors my aggressive style of play and where other players like to take risks with marginal hands.
They are totally different tournaments, they are played with different strategies due to the value of the chips in the elimination, I like the elimination tournaments over the normal ones, they are more exciting because the players make many mistakes in search of eliminating others.
I have preferred playing bounty games, they seem interesting. If you make it far into the money, you can win big bounties as well. I have just started playing bounty games a lot. I like them much better.
I prefer bountys more, not because it is a better format inherently or that payouts are better, they are not. But because they are more fun to beginner players thus the pool plays softer. There is also way more action preflop, and usually people either over-adjust or under-adjust to the bounty prizes factor, so there is a lot of money to be made even if you are just semi-learned / competent in terms the bounty poker courses.
I usually play normal tournaments. On the BBs there are a lot of bounty hunters whose play only for bounty money. It creates more option to call an irresponsible allin-call situation and game may end prematurely. So it can root more stress and pressure on players. But no question: BB is a good format.
