Value Town

High stakes poker tournaments are usually the ones that grab the headlines. They pay out massive prizes that are potentially life-changing for the majority of poker players, but they’re also out of reach of those same players.

There are four Bounty Builder Series tournaments taking place at PokerStars over the next fee days that have chunky guaranteed prize pools for extremely affordable buy-ins. Let’s take a look at what these are events are as we take a trip to Value Town.

Bounty Builder Series 157: $1.10 NLHE [8-Max], $7.5K Gtd

$1.10 is all it costs to enter the 157th event of the $30 million guaranteed Bounty Builder Series. This 8-max event features a $7,500 guarantee for its $1.10 buy-in. Don’t go thinking that such a small buy-in tournament is going to be a crap-shoot because everyone starts with 25,000-chips and plays to blinds that start at 200/400/50a.

Blinds increase every 12-minutes for the first 10-levels before switching to eight-minutes thereafter.

Players receive a minimum of $0.25 for each opponent they bust, meaning you only need to eliminate four foes to be essentially freerolling in the tournament.

Get involved from 4:00 p.m. CET on October 22.
