What is Bounty in Poker Terms?

In poker, a “bounty” refers to a prize awarded to a player for eliminating another player from a tournament.

Bounties are commonly used in bounty tournaments, where a portion of each player’s buy-in is allocated to create a bounty on their head.

When a player eliminates another player by knocking them out of the tournament, they receive that player’s bounty as a reward.
