PokerStars to run PA series parallel to NJ, MI series

Those guarantees add up to almost how much was awarded during the 11-day, 45-event PokerStars PA Winter Series during which players won over $1.7 million. All 45 events in the Winter Series bested their guarantees.

PokerStars and FOX Bet just announced the Bounty Builder Series earlier this week. Meanwhile, a parallel series will run on PokerStars NJ during the same days with 58 events and just over $650,000 in total guarantees.

Interestingly, the brand new PokerStars Michigan site will also be running its first tournament series during the same Feb. 20-Mar. 8 window. The first Michigan Championship of Online Poker (MICOOP) features 60 events and just over $1 million in guarantees.

Buy-ins for the the Bounty Builder Series range from as low as $10 to as high as $1,000 for a Super High Roller event.

The $200 buy-in, two-day Main Event starts Sun., Mar. 7 and features the series’ highest guaranteed prize pool of $150,000.

KO format a hit among PA players last Bounty Builder Series

PokerStars PA most recently ran a Bounty Builder Series in July 2020, a 70-event series that awarded almost $2 million.

Like previous Bounty Builder Series, the one starting tomorrow exclusively features tournaments played using the progressive knockout format.

The format spits prize pools into two halves, with one half going to the deepest finishers and the other “bounty pool” awarded to players when they eliminate opponents.

Here’s a look at the entire 75-event schedule.
