If you love knocking people out and seeing the number of players go down each time someone goes, you will love Knockout Bounty Tournaments at FullTilt. These tournaments are set up and played just like regular tournaments, except the buy-ins are split between the prize pools and the bounties. This means that, for example, a $10 + $1 buy-in tournament will put $8 towards the prize pool and $2 on each player’s head. When you knock out a player, you will immediately win the bounty on his head.
To find these tourneys, go to the Tournament Lobby and look for tournaments listed with the “K” symbol. The Knockout Tournaments at FullTilt have a max of anywhere from 9 players to 7000 players and have buy-ins from $3 + $0.30 with a $0.50 bounty to $240 + $16 with a $40 bounty, which is the largest Hold ‘em knockout on FullTilt—the Sunday Brawl. This tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of $350K with a max of 6000 people. You can win a satellite for this tournament by clicking on the tournament in the lobby, which will open up a new window listing satellites. Satellites start at $10 = $1, and some of these are even knockout satellites.

Typically the bounty tournaments are Hold ‘em games, though you can occasionally find the Omaha Hi $200,000 Guaranteed for a $240 + $16 buy-in with a $40 bounty. There are even satellite tournaments for the Omaha Hi Knockout starting as low as $10 + $1 (the satellites are not knockout-style).
Furthermore, FullTilt offers Bustout Bounties in which you can get your buy-in back (minus the tournament fees), up to $200, for busting out a FullTilt red pro. The more pros you send home, the more money you will make. On top of the cash bounty, Full Tilt will also reward you with a free T-shirt every time you knock a pro out. To participate in this contest, register for any scheduled multi-table cash tourney that has 30+ players. Look for the ones with the red pros listed under the “players” box when you click on a tournament from the lobby. Red pros names will be in red listed at the very top. Full Tilt claims there is at least 100 hours of pro play every week, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one to take down.
These games are definitely worth a try if you are an avid player of online poker tournaments, especially if you have a knack for wiping out other players. If you’re going to ruin someone’s day, you might as well get paid for it.
