The second side event at the Baadshah Gaming Live Tournament Series i.e. ₹10K + ₹5K Bounty event registered 68 entries, a decent turnout given the fact that Day 1B of the Main Event was running at the same time as this event. After a three-way deal between Vidwath Shetty (cover image), Devesh Thapar and Manoj Pentakota, it was Shetty who eventually lifted the trophy, taking home the top prize of ₹1.60 Lakhs.

Without a doubt the most exciting event on the schedule, the bounty event has always been a crowd popular especially at domestic stops. 68 players ponied up the ₹15K buy-in generating a prize pool of ₹6,80,000 that was to be shared among the top seven finishers with players collecting a further ₹5K bounty for every elimination.

Once the final payouts were announced, the remaining players decided to take out ₹5k each from top three prizes to secure the bubble (8th place finisher).
