Online poker giant PokerStars has revamped structures of its slate of progressive knockout tournaments under the ultra-popular Bounty Builder brand.
Starting June 7, all the daily Bounty Builder tournaments in the weekly schedule have shorter late registration periods and bigger guarantees.
Furthermore, the structure of the Bounty Builder tournaments has been altered, with blind levels slightly lengthened, going up every eight minutes instead of seven.
The starting stack size remains the same, but the games now start with 25/50 blinds, meaning players kick off the tournament with 100 big blinds instead of 167 big blinds previously. Antes have also been slightly tweaked.
Despite the increase in time length per level, the tournament’s duration more or less remains the same, as per PRO’s observations.
