Event 9 for both play money and cash will be a special bounty event.
There will be a 50 leaderboard point bounty on EVERY Team PSO member in the team bounty game, Event 9, on June1st.

Members can also earn one additional 100 point for blogging about knocking out the team member and including the knockout hand in the replayer in their blog post.
Each member is only eligible for one blog bonus for each cash and play money, regardless of how many team members they knockout.

The title of the blog post must be 'I knocked out a PSO Team Member' and must be done before 0:00 ET the 5th will not be eligible for the additional 100 points. Members can also designate in their blog, which leaderboard they would like this 100 points to be applied to (US members must have their points go toward the play money leaderboard).
