  1. All tournaments will begin at the time designated in the tournament details, which may be found in the lobby.

  2. Each player will be assigned a seat and he/she may not change his/her assigned seat.

  3. Players may have the option to unregister from a tournament up to the time it starts or until the tournament has reached capacity.

  4. There is a deal for the dealer button at the start of the tournament; high card plays the button for the first hand. The button moves in the conventional clockwise manner so that no player receives the button twice in a row. Occasionally, a player may get the dealer button without having played in the blinds due to other players being eliminated (this commonly occurs in online tournaments due to technical software issues). This may happen to any player during the course of a tournament and therefore creates no long-term advantage.

  5. If a player registers for any tournament and is not present at the table (in Post and Fold mode) for between 15-75 consecutive hands (depending on the tournament), the player will be removed from the tournament and no buy-in will be refunded.

  6. If two (2) players should be eliminated simultaneously, the player with the largest number of chips at the beginning of the hand will be designated as having finished higher. It is impossible for two (2) people to be eliminated simultaneously when going heads up at the final table. If two (2) or more players should be eliminated simultaneously with the same amount of chips at the beginning of the hand, these players will tie and split the prize amount awarded to all places affected.

  7. When a tournament is down to the last two (2) players, the button will post the small blind and be first to act in the initial round. The big blind will then be first to act in the following rounds. The tournament finishes when one (1) player has won all the tournament chips and is declared the winner.

  8. Any play deemed unethical by the Company in its sole discretion (including, without limitation, team play, soft play or chip dumping) will result in the applicable player(s) being disqualified from the tournament.

  9. As players are eliminated over the course of a tournament, tables will be consolidated to keep a full complement of players. Players may be forced to post the blinds when arriving at a new table. Table reassignments are a natural part of tournaments and apply equally to all players.

  10. Players and observers are asked to use the chat function in a friendly and considerate way. Collusion will not be tolerated and discussion of live hands is strictly prohibited. Players in violation of this rule will have chat privileges shut off and may be disqualified from prize winnings.

  11. Internet issues may cause server interruptions and we will endeavor to limit such interruptions during a tournament, but we do not assume responsibility for any such problems. In the event of a player disconnection, player will be put into post and fold mode and we will allow extra time for the disconnected player to reconnect in the later rounds of a tournament. If a player chooses to sit out or is unable to reconnect, he/she will still have cards dealt to him/her and will automatically post blinds and antes. Players that are unable to reconnect during the allotted time will have their hand automatically folded.

  12. Parental Control. Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) are commercially available and may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to those under twenty-one (21) years of age, or the legal age to participate in the tournament sweepstakes in the applicable Jurisdiction, whichever is higher.

Single Table Tournaments Single-Table tournaments (a.k.a. Sit N Go's) begin as soon as all players are seated at a table. These tournaments are always available when the poker room is open and award points based on the prize matrix. We offer a variety of Single Table Tournaments all located in the Lobby. In Single-Table tournaments, all players begin with an equal number of chips. The stakes (antes, blinds) increase over time. Players are knocked out of the tournament as they lose all of their chips to other players. The winner is the player who eventually ends up with all of the chips on the table. The entry fee (a.k.a. Buy-In) for a tournament (i.e. 100 Points per player) is multiplied by the number of players (i.e. 10) to determine the total prizes awarded (in this case 1,000 points) for the tournament. For example, In a ten player tournament, first place receives 50% of the points (i.e. 500) with second and third receiving 30% and 20% respectively.

Multi-Table Tournaments In a Multi-Table tournament, there can be multiple tables of players with a maximum of 10 players per table. In a multi-table tournament, players start with a fixed number of chips and compete for one another's chips as the blinds and/or antes increase incrementally. Players are knocked out of the tournament when they lose all of their chips to their opponents. As players are eliminated, remaining players are re-assigned to seats on other tables to keep tables full and even with one another. Eventually, the last few surviving players with chips are assigned to the final table, where the eventual winner is the individual who wins all the chips from his or her opponents. The tournaments on this site award points and/or prizes to the top finishers. In tournaments awarding points, the total points awarded is equal to the entry fee (in points) per player multiplied by the number of players participating. These points are then awarded as indicated in the tournament detail screen. Our Multi-Table Tournaments begin at a scheduled time and begin after a 5-10 minute check-in period (depending on the tournament). To play in our Multi-Table tournaments, login to the poker application and click on the Tournaments Tab to display our various Poker Rooms and a list of the available Tournaments in each room.
