Praise for Bounties Made Easy

“Dr. K has diligently tracked down the most accurate, cutting edge research on bounty tournaments of all kinds and, when necessary, conducted their own. It’s all presented here in a tidy package, thoroughly explained and rigorously justified.”

Bounty Tournament Theory and Practice

In the course, Dr. K provides an overview of bounty tournament theory (SKO, Mystery Bounty, and Progressive Knockout Tournaments formats) in order to help you understand the fundamental similarities and differences between each type of bounty tournament, as well as how bounty tournaments differ from non bounty tournaments.

Topics covered include bounty tournament structures, how to accurately estimate the added value of a bounty in game throughout the tournament, how to study and review bounty hands you play using solvers in all formats, range construction, as well as the math behind how HRC and ICMizer solvers work and how and when to use them (see below for info about the pre-recorded core course structure).

In addition to the core course videos that cover the fundamental math and theory of bounty tournaments, Dr. K will lead seminar sessions every two weeks discussing and expanding upon course materials.

COURSE START DATE: August 5, 2023 at 1pm ET / 10am PT / 7pm CET. Seminars will continue every two weeks thereafter.

All subscribers will have lifetime access to all course content, live seminar recordings, and updates.

Bounty Seminar Info

Section 1: Intro to Bounty Tournaments

What are Progressive Knockouts (PKOs), Standard Knockout (SKos) and Mystery Bounty tournaments? What do they look like and how are they structured? Dr. K takes you through the basics of bounty tournaments, discussing the similarities and differences between these formats.

Section 2: Intro to SKOs

Dr. K discusses SKO structures and how to calculate the value of an SKO bounty in game.

Section 3: Intro to Mystery Bounties

Dr. K provides an overview of mystery bounty structures and how to calculate the value of a bounty in game.

Section 4: Intro to PKOs

Dr. K provides an overview of how PKO tournaments are structured.

Section 5: The BAR Formula

Dr. K explains their major advancement in bounty theory and math: the BAR formula. In their original and proprietary research, Dr. K has solved the major known problem with what are known as “bounty power” or “bounty factor” formulas: they don’t work past the early stages of the tournament. The BAR formula offers an alternative that provides reasonably accurate (usually within 1-2%) equity drop calculations at any stage of a bounty MTT.

Section 6: Bonus Videos

In the bonus videos, Dr. K analyzes how HRC and ICMizer work (as well as the differences between the two), demonstrates how to use the solvers for all three bounty formats, offers a comparison of the BAR formula to the bounty power formula for those who have been using that concept, and provides an overview of ICM fundamentals.

Bonus Tools: Equity Drop Calculators

In addition to offering simple formulas for calculating bounty equity drops in game, Dr. K has built equity drop calculators for PKOs and SKOs that you can use in your study and post-game review away from the tables.
