What is Bounty in Poker?

In Knockout/Bounty tournaments, a bounty is a set amount of prize money you win for each player you knock out. For example, in a $100+20 buy-in Knockout tournament with $20 bounties, you win $20 for each player you eliminate from the tournament, in addition to the normal payout structure.
