This course will help you answer questions like how much is a bounty worth, how do bounties impact ICM, and how to adjust tour strategies both preflop and postflop in every scenario you will face – we start from the fundamentals all the way to the most advanced bounty concepts, including mystery bounties. On top of that, there are tools given out like spreadsheets, powerpoints and a PKO quiz. Also included are 4 hand history/FT reviews, both by me and guests Graftekkel and Oneh1twonder.

We introduce the structure of the course, what you can expect to get out of it, and the best way to move through the videos to get the most out of them.

Basics: What’s a Bounty Worth, Theory, and Solvers

The math behind the value of a bounty is discussed and we introduce the theory along with how to use solvers for analyzing bounty tournaments.

Opening and Jamming as the Big Stack

When you hold the big stack your ranges need to reflect your ability to scoop bounties and we look into how to constuct them effectively.

Opening and Jamming as the Short Stack

When playing the short stack your opponents are going to be more apt to play against you with your bounty at stake and we need to adjust accordingly.

3-Betting and Calling as the Big Stack

3 betting ranges can change dramatically based on your stack size and here we look at doing so as the big stack.

3-Betting and Calling as the Short Stack

Just as having the big stack alters our range, 3 betting as the short stack looks dramatically different and we explore that here.

Blind v Blind: SB is Short

Blind battles can be tough to navigate but occur frequently and we discuss how to approach when the SB is short.

Blind v Blind: SB is the Big Stack

On the flip side, we look at a blind battle where the SB covers the BB.

Limping: When and Why

Limping marks a key difference in this format with quite a few opportunites to do so and we look at when and why to limp.

Multiway All-ins

Occasionally you’ll find situations with multiple players all-in and we have to narrow down our approach that takes a number of factors into consideration.

Postflop Adjustments: Covering and Covered

Whether you’re covered or covering your opponent, your postflop play will change dramatically and we discuss how and why that is.

Postflop Adjustments: Covering and Covered (part 2)

We dive further into the details of how to approach postflop situations both when you’re covering your opponent and covered by your opponent.

ICM Bubble: Covering and Covered

Even though bounties play a huge role in your decisions, you still need to contend with ICM and we look specifically at bubble play in this installment.

ICM Final Table: Covering and Covered

At the final table we’ll have many factors to contend with. Here, we dive into ICM when covering and covered.

Field Size Differences

The size of the field will have a definitive impact on your decisions, the importance of bounties, and the structure of the prize pool and we examine each.

Adjustments to Very Short or All-In Stacks

Inevitably you’ll have hands where players are either forced or nearly forced to put their stacks in and with a juicy bounty things can get weird.
