Can you explain the algorithm you used to determine the random bounty players. Does the software re-evaluate each time a player busts out resulting in increasing the odds the deeper you are in a tournament. Or is the player determined from the start of the game.

For example in a 26 player tournament, the first one out has a 1 in 26 chance, the 2nd out has 1 in 25 chance.

This is not a bad thing since it keeps the 'suspense' of the random player later in the tourney and giving better odds to players who finish later in the tourney.
