Time to slash heads! U Series of Poker kicks off its new season today at Asia Poker Arena, Taipei City


Good morning Taiwan! The tables are set, the trophies are on display, today marks the start of the U Series of Poker 2024 season taking center stage at the renowned Asia Poker Arena in Taipei City.

Nothing could be more fitting than opening up with crowd favorite Mystery Bounty.  In partnership with Chinese Texas Hold’em Poker Association (CTP), anticipation is high for a large turnout with last year attracting 534 entries. This is the first of six Head Hunter events lined up. Expect some early aggression as players attempt to reach the money round of 12.5% of the field.

Let the games begin!

Mystery Bounty rewards chest

For those new to this bounty format, each entry flight plays down to ITM of 12.5% of the field. Unlike traditional bounty events, bounty rewards only come in play starting Day 2 once everyone is in the money. All bounty prizes remain a secret until drawn.

As the festival progresses, Head Hunters will have their hands full with a total of six bounty events scheduled. Make sure to mark down the dates below. As a tip, non-mystery events are the best way to make one’s buy in back and more right from the onset. For every player scalped, the executioner instantly receives a bounty reward.
