Bounty Hunter Champion

  • If bounty tournaments are your thing, you need to head to Sky Poker in Jan. and become the Bounty Hunter Champion.

Bounty tournaments are a popular tournament format in online poker circles as they give players the opportunity to make some money from the event without the need for them to reach the payout places.

Playing bounty tournaments at Sky Poker during January, where they are known as Bounty Hunter tournaments, could see you walk away with a share of £5,000 every week.

Until Jan. 29, Sky Poker is running a trio of leaderboards revolving around the action in three Bounty Hunter Champion tournaments with buy-ins of £5.50, £33 and £110. Play in one, two or all three of these nightly tournaments and each time you send an opponent to the rail you’ll add a bounty to your leaderboard score. End the week as one of the players to claim the most bounties and you’ll win a cash prize of between £10 and £500.

Week one of the leaderboards is complete, but there are still three more weeks of this value-packed promotion to get involved in.

  • Monday 9th to Sunday 15th January
  • Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd January
  • Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th January

The Mini Leaderboard pays out £2,000 each week to the top 30 bounty players, as does the Main Leaderboard, with the High Roller Leaderboard paying out £1,000 to the top 10 bounty players. This promotion should make the Bounty Hunter tournaments at Sky Poker even better value as players in them could be more focussed on playing aggressive to claim bounties than they are concentrating on the actual tournament.

To compete in the Bounty Hunter Champion promotion you need to opt-in via the “My Account” by entering the code “CHAMPION”. Once you have done this, each bounty you claim from the three nightly tournaments mentioned early counts towards your weekly score.

If you don’t already have a Sky Poker account, download the software via PokerNews and you will receive £10 worth of tournament tickets and a 200% bonus up to £500 when you make your first deposit at the site. After that, eliminate as many opponents as you can to climb up the respective leaderboards.
