Tournament Format:

Multi Table Tournament – A ‘Multi Table Tournament’ or a MTT is where multiple players play down to an eventual winner. Each players starts with the same amount of chips and the blinds will gradually increase with the winner ending up with all the other players chips.  Prizes are calculated based on the number of runners with 1st place finishing with the most and decreasing on a sliding scale.

Progressive Bounty Tournament – A ‘Progressive Bounty Tournament’ or PKO is fairly new type of poker tournament which has become very popular online in recent years. The format is the same as a MTT with the difference being instead of 100% of the buy-in going to the prizepool, half  of your buy-in will go into the prizepool, while the other half with be added as a bounty on each players head. For example if a tournament costs £10 to enter, £5 will go to the general prize pool, while £5 will go to each player’s initial bounty. If you knock a player out of a tournament, you would keep £2.50 of the bounty, while the other £2.50 would go towards your own bounty that is on your head. The more people you knock out the more money you will earn, as the game progresses the remaining players bounties will keep increasing, so you will not only be competing for the general prizepool but also players increasing bounties.
