    Default KO MTT Deep $3.30 - GII?

    Interested in thoughts here, specifically about your approach to a bounty tournament and these specific bounties on the short stacks. For reference, half of the bounty is paid out, half goes on to your own head. We're around 1% of the field remaining, approx. 100 players.

    A5s is normally too loose for me to open with this stack, but the key is that the bb has a $40 bounty and I figure it's worth a gamble, assuming he gets in almost ATC. MP1 is loose passive with a $20 bounty and MP2 also has a $40 bounty. How do we like an overjam? We're going to have 30% equity against MP2 and MP1 should probably fold.

    FWIW, I have a $30 bounty on my head and the other short stack on the sb has $40.

    Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with 5 A
    Hero raises to 34,200, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls 34,200, MP2 raises to 112,430 and is all-in, 5 folds, Hero????

    I do not really play knock out tournaments, but I think trying to steal the BB / knock him out with Ace suited from UTG is probably flawed to begin with.
    Field mice are fast, but owls can see in the dark.

    You should think about the KO tournaments. Recreational players love them.
