  • Bounty builder special math

    I have some issues about bounty mtts lets get it in: All MTTS STARTING STACK 5000 CHIPS

    *In a regulat super knockout $22 buy in ($10 + $10 + $2) we give $10 to prize pool and get 5000 chips... so $10 worth 5000 chips, right ? which means a single bounty worth 5000 chips.

    *Small regular knockout $13.50 buy in ($10 + $2.50 +$1) we give $10 to prize pool and get 5000 chips.. so $10 worth 5000 chips, right? which means a single bounty worth 1250 chips.

    *Progressive Knockouts $22 buy in ($10 + $10 + $2) we give $10 to prize pool and get 5000 chips... so $10 worth 5000 chips, right ?

    *My question is when progressive knckouts are more than 50% of buy ins... example is Saturday specials on Stars 75% knockouts progressive.... example: $44 buy in ($10 + $30 + $4) ... we give $10 to the prize pool and get 5000 chips... so, if $10 worth 5000 chips, the initial bounty of $15 worth 7500 chips ???? If it is, it leads us to crazy situations on early games.. am I right ?

    But I dont think it works like this... this is what I found in several websites explaining about knockouts..

    but lets take a look on 100% knockouts.. u buy in for $0,01 and get 5000 chips.. if it is a $30 knockout.. $30 worth infinite hahahahahha

    with that being said, I think works like this:

    *In a regulat super knockout $22 buy in ($10 + $10 + $2) we give $20 and get 5000 chips... so $10 worth 2500 chips. which means a single bounty worth 2500 chips.

    *Small regular knockout $13.50 buy in ($10 + $2.50 +$1) we give $12.50 and get 5000 chips.. so $12.50 worth 5000 chips. which means a single bounty worth 1000 chips.

    *Progressive Knockouts $22 buy in ($10 + $10 + $2) we give $20 and get 5000 chips... so $10 worth 2500 chips.. which means the initial bounty of $5 worth 1250 chips... and every $5 more we add 1250 chips into the math to calculate our pot odds of calling all ins from people we cover.

    toughts ?

      I forgot the 75% knockouts...$44 buy in ( 10 + 30 + 4 ) $40 worth 5000 chips and 30$ 3750 chips.. which means the initial bounty of $15 worth 3750/2 = 1875 chips

        OP, yes you are right. Ricky, your math is wrong when you combine the entry and bounty as a single fee then compare the bounty price. The entry fee buys you the chips. The bounty is completely separate. And yes, it makes the math ridiculous in the beginning. That is the point. To drive alot of action in the beginning of the MTT. You separate out the entry fee and bounty as separate costs. The entry gets your chips. then the comparison of the bounty to entry fee is the % of starting chips the bounty is worth.

        In progressive bounties, the value is the amount of bounty available to win. For instance, if a progressive starts with 50% for the knockout and 50% going into your own bounty. The bounty available to win compared to the entry fee is the amount of entry chips value available to win.

        In your progressive example, $10 + $30 + $4, the initial full bounty is worth 15,000 in chips, but you can only win half of that and the other half increases your bounty. So that would make t7,500 chips in value available to win on a player with only his initial bounty available.
