Bounty Hunter

  1. Noun

    A player who attempts to knock out an opponent that has been assigned a bounty or who makes adjustments to tournament play based on the presence of bounties.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Not every player in a bounty tournament would be considered a bounty hunter, as some players may believe the prizes awarded for a bounty are not large enough to warrant a change in strategy that might hurt one's chances of finishing in a better position.

    EXAMPLE: "With a bounty on me, I play much more conservatively. Even though my opponents should know I have a strong hand when I am in the pot, the bounty hunters will play weak hands against me in the hopes of getting lucky."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    RELATED TERMS: Aggressive, Bounty, Bounty Tournament, Bounty-Only Tournament, Conservative, Loose, Tight, Weak

  2. Noun

    In a tournament without any bounties, a player who aggressively attempts to knock out opponents.

    EXAMPLE: "I'm a fairly conversative player in single-table sit and go tournaments. Especially in the first portion of the tournament, I am very selective about what hands I play, mostly staying out of the action and letting the bounty hunters take out the maniacs."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    RELATED TERMS: Aggressive, Bounty, Bounty Tournament, Bounty-Only Tournament, Loose, Maniac, Rock, Tight, Weak
