Our tournaments differ from the non-tournament games in several ways. The first section covers all tournaments.
Single Table Tournaments
- If you fail to respond, or suffer a disconnect, there is no All In protection.
- You may not Sit Out. You may, instead, mark yourself as Away From Table.
- If you time out due to disconnect, or failing to respond when your turn, you will be marked as Away From Table automatically.
- If you are in the Away From Table mode, your blind is paid, when appropriate, and you are folded. When you return, be certain to uncheck the Left Table box.
- As soon as the table is full, the game begins. These are fill and go games.
- There are no break periods.
- You may leave the table any time prior to the start of the tournament without penalty.
- Seating is at your choice. You may choose any open seat at a single table tournament. This will be your seat for the duration of the tournament.
- Multi-table tournaments are scheduled. You register for the tournament. These tournaments have posted start times. You must have registered prior to the start. Registration locks a few minutes before the start of the tournament. You will receive audio and visual reminders prior to the start. You will be seated prior to the start.
- Seating is random. A few minutes before the tournament begins, the table will open with your seat assigned.
- The software keeps tables balanced in terms of the number of players seated at each. As players go broke, causing an imbalance in the distribution of players, you may be reseated to another table. This is done randomly, therefore you may experience a reseating repeated times.
- The software closes tables as the number of open seats grows. You will be advised when the table at which you are seated is being closed. The break order is from highest numbered table for the tournament in descending order.
- You may open and watch other tables.
- The tournament lobby will show the number of players in the tournament, their current chip count, and the prize structure.
- Multi-Table tournaments have a 5 minute break once an hour, after 55 minutes of play.
- Only first place in the STT Satellite qualifiers gets a prize; a seat in the MTT final.
- If you play and win more than one STT Satellite qualifier, you win the cash value of the seat if you already have a seat in the Final.
- You may register directly in the MTT Final, paying the full seat price.
- If you have a seat in the MTT Final that you won, you may not unregister to take the cash value. If you directly purchased the seat in the Final, you may unregister and receive a refund for the buy-in and fee prior to the start of the MTT Final.
- STT Satellite qualifiers will not begin within 2 hours of the Final. Anyone seated at an STT Satellite qualifier that has not started before the 2 hour cutoff will receive a refund and the STT will be cancelled. In the unlikely event a Satellite Single Table qualifier has not completed by the start of the Grand Final MTT, the winner of the Satellite STT will be awarded the cash value of the seat. This may take up to 48 hours to process.
- You may purchase a seat in the MTT Final up until 5 minutes before the start of the MTT Final.
