    Default New: Bubble Bonus

    We are trying out a new bonus in the next #18 tournament this Saturday Dec 8th at Full Tilt.

    It is called the Bubble Bonus, and is awarded to the player who is knocked out from the tournament on the bubble. This means the last player to be knocked out from the tournament before money places start.

    So for example if top 50 players get prize money, the $25 Bubble Bonus goes to the player who finishes at place 51.

    We hope that this bonus adds to the excitement, and encourages tournament participants to play better and last longer.

    Please leave your comments on how you like this bonus before/after the tournament.

    Default not a fan

    im really not a fan of this new bubble bonus. it doesnt really change the buuble. now if your paying out the top 50, and 51st gets the bubble bonus, this means that 52nd is not the new bubble, since he is now not getting paid. id rather see the 25$ go into the prizepool
    ill be seeing u on the felt, and remember I DONT BLUFF

    LOL, won't people just just go all-in when they are on the bubble so they can get 25 bucks?

    GREAT IDEA. More incentive not to play like a donk until the bubble.

    In a sense I like the idea, but it will mean that when the bubble is approaching, say 51 people left in the freeroll and there is 50 places paid, all of the short stacks will be inclined to keep shoving allin, because the 25 bubble bonus will be higher than what they would get for 50th place payoff. So IMHO it is encouraging people to risk going out because if they do, they still get a nice payday.. and it could mean some people get screwed over or getbad beats from hands the short stack wouldnt have normally shoved with, any opinions on this?


    gl at the tables

    Default Bubble bonus

    The bubble bonus is both good and bad thing. It promotes agressive play @ the buble thereby shortening the overall game time, but it also promotes bad play in teaching you to play agresively when you should hold back.
