Five of the seven tournaments will conclude within one day of play. Only Event #1 and the Main Event will run for multiple days. Speaking of the Main Event, the tournament runs from April 28-May 1, with a Day 1 flight the first three days. PokerNews’ live reporting team will cover the entire event.
The Main Event features a Mystery Bounty element, with bounties ranging from $500 to $50,000. Upon busting a player starting on Day 2, the player with the winning hand will go select a mystery envelope that has a hidden cash value inside.
Over the past year, Mystery Bounty tournaments have become the new craze in poker thanks to the Wynn Las Vegas. Players rave about the excitement of opening a mystery bounty, and now rooms such as bestbet Jacksonville are joining in on the fun.
