Tournament Types Games

Guaranteed Tournaments

Guaranteed tournaments have a guaranteed prize pool (ex. $2000 guaranteed). The guaranteed amount will be distributed as promised even if the total collected buy-in amount falls short of the guaranteed amount. Please note that our regular tournaments contribute the collected buy-in amount to the prize pool. However, if there are more buy-ins than the guaranteed prize pool, the total money pool increases accordingly. The guaranteed prize amount for each tournament is indicated in the tournament lobby, if applicable.

Freezeout

At the start of tournament, the players will receive an equal amount of tournament chips. It is not possible to add-on more chips while the tournament is in play. If a player loses all of one’s chips, then the player will be eliminated from tournament. If the tournament is not a rebuy tournament, then it will be freezeout tournament.

Progressive Bounty

In our Progressive Bounty tournaments, each player has a bounty on his or her head. When a player is knocked out of a tournament, the corresponding player’s bounty is added on to the bounty of the player who knocks him or her out. The accumulated prize pool will be distributed to the players who make it in the money, at which point the winner will be decided like a normal freezeout tournament.

Rebuy Tournaments

At the start of tournament, the players will receive an equal amount of tournament chips. During the tournament, every player has the opportunity to rebuy, which is purchasing additional chips equivalent to the starting chip stack. Players have the option to rebuy at any time during the specified time period, when their current chip amount is equal to or below the starting chips. The time allotted for rebuys and the number of rebuys available are different depending on the tournament. Details regarding rebuy tournaments are indicated in the tournament lobby, if applicable.
