What you need to know about the PokerStars PA Bounty Builder for July 2020

July’s Bounty Builder is upping the ante of February’s Bankroll Builder, by increasing guaranteed prizes by three times, up from $500,000. Throughout the 70-event series, PokerStars will host a variety of tournament types including No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Omaha 8, 5-Card Omaha, and even some draw and mixed games.

The Bounty Builder series will conclude with a pair of Main Events, including a $150,000 guaranteed $200 buy-in tournament as well as a $50 Mini Main Event with a $40,000 guarantee. In addition to the attractive first-place prizes, players will also receive a Championship Belt to proudly wear. Nine championship belts are expected to be available for the winners of certain PokerStars PA Bounty Builder tournaments.

The buy-in range for the PokerStars Bounty Series will range from $10 up to $500, but if that’s too steep for you, you can also participate via satellites starting at $5.

What are Progressive Knockout tournaments?

Unlike a standard tournament, progressive knockout tournaments also incorporate bounties as a significant portion of payouts. In general, half of the buy-in will be applied to the standard tiered prize pool while the other half will be applied to a bounty on each player.

For the bounty portion of the series, when you knock out a player you will receive half of that player’s bounty as your winnings. The other half will be added to the bounty on your head.
