Multi-table tournaments (MTTs) offers the opportunity to win a larger prize with a smaller buy-in amount. A MTT consists of many tables, lots of players and a prize pool that usually varies based on the amount players.
Players register for a tournament by paying a fixed buy-in with all players receiving an equal number of tournament chips to start the game. When a player runs out of chips, they’re out of the tournament (with the exception of re-buy tournaments). As players are eliminated, the tables get broken up and balanced out so that the remaining tables are as evenly distributed as possible. The field will continue to shrink until we get down to the final table. The surviving players will battle it out, until a player wins the all the chips. The top finishers in the tournament will receive an escalating prize based on their finish position. Check the tournament lobby for the specific payout information.
Multi-tables tournaments generally take a good amount of time to complete, for tourneys that last less than an hour, see SIT & GO TOURNAMENTS, for games where you can come and go as please.
