This time of year, many poker rooms will be offering up seats to the WSOP Main Event but none will do it in the style that Absolute Poker will. In a series of Japanese feudal-style bounty tournaments, players will be attempting to assassinate each other via their poker playing ability on a journey towards a seat at the World Series of Poker Main Event.
The best thing about these bounty tournaments is that they happen every Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET with qualifiers held every day. You can buy into a qualifier for $24 + $3 while buy-ins for the main event bounty tournaments are $200 + $9. Out of the $200, $100 of it will go towards the prize pool while the other half goes into the bounties. The winner of a main event bounty tournament could find themselves with a free seat to the World Series of Poker.
What makes this tournament so great is that, besides just the WSOP Main Event seat being offered, there will be tons of cash to be claimed as well. That’s because every single player at your table will have a bounty on their head. If you are able to knock a player out of a tournament, the bounty will be collected. Take out enough players and you’ll no doubt be a much wealthier assassin.
Even if you are hesitant to join in on the bounty tournament slayings, Absolute Poker has some cool, free stuff such as a ninja-style poker table, unique ninja avatars, and a hot assassin’s calendar.
