Bounty Poker tournaments have been around for a while now and are one of the most exciting no limit Texas holdem games to play. The bounties originate from each player’s buy-in and in many cases as much as half of it will be placed on your head as a bounty if someone takes you out in the game.

In bounty poker gamee it is even more important to build your chip lead early in the game as playing bounty games differ some what from standard no limit poker in that it is usually played in an even more aggressive, looser fashion due to the bounties placed on everyone’s head.
You can play this Bounty Poker Games in a couple of different ways.
The first way is to play your usual game, keeping your eyes on the final prize with any bounties you might earn being a bonus.
There are more risks than usual in doing this because of the bounty hunters calling with very average hands anytime a low stacked player is in the hand and possibly hitting an unexpected hand. But if you have built that early chip lead you should still be in a good position even if you do lose with your premium cards.
The second way to play this game is to be an aggressive bounty hunter, taking out as many bounties as you can and in doing so building your chip lead. While dangerous, this is an effective tool and will still get you to the final prize at the end.
I use a combination of them both, building my chip stack early in the game while most of the players left still have a decent stack, then, if during this process I have taken enough bounties to cover my buy-in I become much more aggressive, keeping in mind that i want to make it to my final destination which is to win or at least place in the prize pool.
If you have not tried bounty poker, do so, it is one of the most entertaining poker games online now and most poker sites offer at least some version of it.
Try one of the free poker sites first if you’re not sure and play with no or very little risk before you go for it.
