Who is still a beginner poker could be displaced before special game modes in certain tournaments, live or online. That’s why we decided to open here on PIW an address book with the basic rules of poker in tournament mode. Today we want to tell you what tournaments are called ‘knockout’ or ‘bounty’, giving you some advice on strategies optimized game to be taken.
A tournament ‘knockout’ can also be called for short ‘ko’ (or in many other ways) and can be found in the provision of online MTT of the rooms but also live. It simply consists in a tournament where there are sizes (or ‘bounty’) of all participants. Anyone can take a player out, won the sum offered as a prize for each deletion. From where do these money? Simple, as a part of the registration fee for each participant.
The buy-in of these tournaments provides for a part that ends in the prize pool, the value of its size and finally the fee. That’s why you usually indicates the cost of these tournaments with three amounts. For example, the formula 50 +20 +10 indicates a tournament where the prize pool is made up of € 50 for each player. The size of each is 20 € and the fee is 10 € instead.
The token of the bounty
It is clear that in this way you can win some money, recovering part of the buy-in, or even all the money, simply by eliminating the opponents, without necessarily get ITM. The game will be much happier as a result, so to speak, because the players will call more easily all-in hoping to make the victims.
How should I play these tournaments technical point of view? Well, it’s just important to remember that our opponents are encouraged to play a much more loose. As a result we adapt instead usually playing more solid. When you enter a hand, make sure you have a good point because you’ll find many easy call away.
As for the knockout tournaments live, you have to know something more. Generally, players in fact receive tokens that represent their size. Who makes a player wins the coin out of the opponent, thus increasing his ‘collection’. When you delete a player who has already won several pans, he still gives only one coin, his. Trivia: if you put in the pot your bounty, it means that you are all-in.
Warning: do not confuse these knockout tournaments with those that provide only the sizes of some players. The rooms in fact sometimes propose the MTT where there is an extra reward only for a pro or eliminates certain participants. In this case, you always have an eye for these ‘target’ and remember that they are well aware of having to play with particularly strong hands because they will often call lightly.
