PokerStars Guarantees $25 Million For Bounty Builder Series
Fans of progressive knockout (PKO) tournaments around the world are rejoicing thanks to PokerStars guaranteeing an impressive $25 million for its Bounty Builder Series.

Several formats and disciplines adorn the Bounty Builder Series schedule, putting PokerStars players to the ultimate test. Standard, turbo and hyper-turbos are present and correct. As are nine-handed, eight-max, six-max, and four-max.
The majority of the schedule is made up of no-limit hold’em tournaments, but there are some pot-limit Omaha and the exciting NLO8.
