The invention of the mystery bounty tournaments has been one of the most exciting developments in poker in years. But what if instead of all the prizes being positive money spins, there were a few negative – possibly even gut-wrenching! – consequences?

First, let’s recap how mystery bounty tournaments work in their current state:

  • Day one, or the ‘pre-money phase’, plays like a standard poker tournament. (No prize is awarded for eliminating a player.)
  • Once the bubble bursts and players reach the payouts, there is an added incentive to eliminate opponents.
  • Every time a person is eliminated you receive their chips and a chance to pull a ‘mystery bounty’ for an unknown denomination.

Online this looks like a slot machine pull. Live it’s usually the opportunity to randomly draw an envelope with a monetary amount printed.

So, what is it that makes this new tournament format so popular and is there an evil twist to it? If you'd like to know more, be sure to visit the 888poker Magazine to read the full article.
