Bust the Staff!

Bust the Staff! is a special monthly NL Texas Hold'em knockout tournament that runs every third Thursday of the month and gives you the chance to face off against members of the Replay Poker Staff and even more!

The tournament has an added prize pool of 1 million chips and a special bounty prize of 50,000 chips for every member of staff you eliminate from the tournament. Staff members are not the only players with bounties on their heads! To make the tournament even more exciting, every Replay Volunteer has a 10,000-chip bounty, too. And, if that isn't enough, players' 1,000-chip buy-in is paid out as a 1,000-chip bounty on every player who is knocked out during the tournament!

You can easily spot a staff member -- they have a red star next to their name on the game table!

Last but not the least, a yearly leaderboard featuring a prize pool of 5 million free chips is available. At the end of the calendar year, the Top 50 players who accumulate the most knockouts in the 12 Bust the Staff tournaments of each year will claim their share!

With a buy-in of just 1,000 chips, everyone can play! Will you be the last player standing?
