Welcome back to the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne, Australia as we are set to bring you all the action from the Feature Event: $1,650 NLH Bounties.
Last year this event was played later in the schedule and featured the same unique structure, with the final four tables of 8 played in a shootout format. Of course, it is the bounties that get the players stuffing their chips in the middle as one player at each table will have a target on their head.
A field of 235 took to the felt in this event last year, while a huge 450-player field took part in the bounties event in 2009. This year is set to feature a field somewhere in the middle of that number, but be assured that there will be no shortage of recognizable faces as players from all around the world start to filter into Melbourne.
Our live coverage is set to begin in just a short while at 12:30 pm local time, so make sure to tune in as we bring you Day 1 of this 2-Day event. Don't forget to also check out our coverage of the $1,100 No Limit Hold'em Rebuy this afternoon as a stacked final table kicks of at 4:00 pm local time.
