Changes in Progressive KOs

We're in the process of making changes to the display of Progressive Knockout tournaments. These changes will be gradually rolled out over the month of May as the latest software is released. The point of the changes is to make it clearer how much stands to be won, and how much has already been won.

Progressive Knockout display changes:

• In a Progressive Knockout tournament, all players have a 'bounty plate' below their avatar. In this example, the bounty plate shows $20.

Old: the bounty plate shows the total KO value associated with each player. If the progressive percentage was 50%, then eliminating this player would result in winning $10, while the other $10 would be added to the bounty of the surviving player.

New: the bounty plate shows the amount that will be immediately won for eliminating this player. In this example, it would show $10 rather than $20, because $10 is the amount that can be immediately won. The same $20 is still in play, with the other $10 being added to the bounty of the surviving player. It is only the display that has changed.

In a Progressive Knockout tournament, the tournament lobby ranking list shows bounty information.

Old: the ranking list shows bounty amounts in two different ways:

• For players who still have chips, the list shows the total bounty currently carried by each player, including the progressive amount which will end up being carried by another player.

• For eliminated players, the list shows the total amount won from knocking out other players.
New: the 'Bounty' column in the ranking list will always show the total amount already won as a result of eliminating other players.
