In the increasingly popular “bounty” tournaments at internet poker rooms, part of the reward for success is the money one wins just for knocking someone out.But now, in addition to the bounty money and (hopefully) the regular prize money in the tournament, UltimateBet is tacking on more prizes for bounty hunters.
In their newly renamed “Sniper” tournaments, the folks at UB are looking to reward the top pelt winners with more chances to play.Those who win the most bounties in each of the six daily Sniper tournaments will compete in a free weekly seven player tournament against their counterparts from their tournament category (the top bounty winners from the $10 + 1 tourneys will face off, the top winners from the $100 + $9 will play each other, etc.).The winner of each of the six freerolls will win entries into more bounty tourneys.On top of that, the player who scores the most bounties across the entire week at each of the Sniper buy-ins will win more entries.
Here are the rewards:
2:00pm – $30 + $3 – Two $30 + $3 Sniper tournament entries for both the freeroll winner and the Sniper of the week.
3:00pm – $6 + $.60 – Two $6 + $.60 Sniper tournament entries for both the freeroll winner and the Sniper of the week.
8:00pm – $10 + $1 and $20 + $2 – One Wednesday $20 + $2 Sniper tournament entry or Two Wednesday $10 + $1 entries for both the freeroll winner and the Sniper of the week.
9:00pm – $100 + $9 and $200 + $15 – One Wednesday $200 + $15 Sniper tournament entry or Two Wednesday $100 + $9 entries for both the freeroll winner and the Sniper of the week.
