The Bounty Builder Series has begun on PokerStars in…
PokerStars Ontario maintains its forward pace in 2023 with the introduction of a new and thrilling event series with a total prize pool of $700.000 CDN.
Less than a week after wrapping up its 50/50 Series, PokerStars Ontario is offering another special surprise for tournament lovers. The operator is holding a Bounty Builder Series, so expect lots of activity at the tables.
This series runs from February 18th to March 6th and contains CAD $700,000 in guaranteed prize money across all events played in the standard PKO (progressive knockout) style. This ensures that participants may still profit from their efforts even if they do not make it to the latter rounds of a competition.
PokerStars Ontario has a variety of tournaments with buy-ins starting as little as $5. There are tournaments with buy-ins as little as $0.01 and as high as $1,000, and more than a hundred events give players lots of opportunities to play at varying stakes.
Featured Events from the PokerStars ON Bounty Builder Series
|Dates||Feb 18 – March 6|
|Total number of events||100|
|Total GTD||CAD $700,000|
|Main Event GTD||$75,000|
For the Main Event, There Is Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars at Stake
The Main Event, with a $75,000 prize pool and a $200 entry fee, is sure to be the highlight of the tournament series. The competition is set for March 5, at the finish of the series.
Every elimination in the Main Event will be worth at least $50 thanks to the PKO structure and the $100 added to the bounty prize pool from each buy-in. As the tournament goes, the value of the bounties will rise as the player who scores each elimination will get half of the reward added to their total.
The event has a slow format, with a beginning stack of 50,000 chips and 15-minute levels that increase to 20 minutes later on. During the roughly four-hour late registration period, each participant may reenter the game a maximum of five times.
Overlay is possible in the Main Event of the PokerStars Ontario Bounty Builder Series. A total of 100 events are planned for the complete program, so there will be plenty of additional activity.
Series Overview and Key Moments in the Bounty System
Beginning this coming Saturday, February 18th, there will be nine separate competitions in this brand new series. Following then, tournaments will be held more often on Saturdays and Sundays, with at least four taking place each day.
The Sunday $100 Series Kick-Off has a CAD$10,000 guarantee, while the Sunday $5 Bounty Builder #8 has a comparatively modest CAD$1400 guarantee, which is also expected to be smashed due to the large number of entrants.
The program contains a range of games and styles, so those who like games other than Hold ’em will be able to find something to their liking. There are many other types of poker tournaments, including the more common Pot Limit Omaha and No Limit Omaha, as well as 8-game and HORSE events, 2-7 Single Draw, 5 Card Draw, and even Courchevel.
The Bounty Builder Series welcomes players of all skill levels thanks to its wide range of buy-in amounts. Around half of the tournaments have a buy-in of $30 or less, while the other half have buy-ins of $50 or more.
On Sunday, February 19, Event #15 (next to the Main Event) has the highest guarantee. With a $100 entry fee, participants have a chance to win $40,000. The February 26th $1000 Event #52 is a high-stakes event with a $35,000 prize pool for the highest bidder.
As compared to higher buy-in tournaments, the guarantees for lower buy-in tournaments are often less. However, there are four $50 tournaments that promise five figures, and they appear to achieve the perfect balance between the entrance cost and prize pool.
Fans of PKO at PokerStars Ontario, particularly those interested in trying their hand at games other than Hold’em, are in for a nice treat over the next several weeks.
