Most poker players have a favorite online tournament during the regular weekly schedule, one that they absolutely hate to miss.

Maybe they’ve had a lot of success in it in the past. Perhaps they just love the structure or the fields that play it.

Bounty builders are undoubtedly the most popular type of poker tournament right now, and it’s not hard to understand why. They allow you to win prizes quicker, there’s always tons of action, and they’re very understudied by your average poker grinder.

It wasn’t surprising to learn that the $530 Bounty Builder on PokerStars is Lex Veldhuis’ personal favorite.

“It has everything,” he told us. “The best players in the world play in that tournament and I love playing against good competition, which I get to do in that tournament. But at the same time, a lot of recreational players love the tournament and play it too. There are lots of good satellites to it, so you get the perfect mix for a tournament.

“On top of that, there’s the bounty aspect, which I think is really awesome because it adds another layer of dynamics to poker. I think the bounty builders are cool because they create a lot of winning moments where there’s more at stake than just chips.”

The last time we checked in with BBZ Poker student and Twitch star Arlie Shaban (prior to his switch to PokerStars Ontario), his favorite tournament on the regular schedule was the $109 Monday 6-Max.

“I grind late into the night and enjoy how this $109 has a great structure and large field size (for the evenings),” the PokerStars Team Pro told us. “I also enjoy that it is a 6-max as it makes for more hands played and fewer chances for recreationals to sit around and wait for better spots.”
