You have to double the amount of chips you have by winning a single pot. For example at the start of a tournament you have 20k, you need at least one person to go all so that the pot is 20k+, then you must win the pot.

EDIT: also some bounties require you to "steal the hand at the turn/river" which means you need to bluff your opponents and make them fold and steal the pot.

Figured instead of making a new thread, I would just ask here. What is a "showdown?"

A showdown is when its comes down to just you and one other player. This can be because everyone else busted out or folded.

Doesn't it also have to get to the final card and cards are shown rather than someone folding?

To win with a kicker you and your opponent have to have the same winning hand. Easy way if you both have two pair, the same two pair. Then your fifth card, which is the kicker, has to be bigger then your opponent. So say you both have two pair 7's and 8's his fifth card is a 10 and yours is a King. Then you win with a king kicker.

I believe they were only stating their worry at such a horrible feat they have to pull off.

I had to win a showdown with a kicker. It was rough, as I kept just barely losing while trying it last night.

Then today, i got it on my first hand against Claptrap. We both had nothing in our pocket, and got a pair of 8s on the flop. We both got nothing on the turn and river, and I beat him (and busted him) with my lowly 10 kicker (he had a 9).

I'm definitely going to dashboard every time I get overly difficult bounties in the future.
