About Tournaments

The aim of the game

The aim in a poker tournament is to finish the game with all of your opponent’s chips.

How a tournament is played

Tournaments are played by a group of participants who have all paid a fixed buy-in, part pool and part fee. The pool is used to pay the winner and the fee goes to the house. For example, 5€+1€ means that you buy-in for 6€, 5€ goes to the pool and 1€ is the entry fee paid to the house. The tournament is finished when a player has won all the chips.

Limited risk

Unlike traditional ring games, the risk in tournament play is limited to the initial sign-up fee. With only a limited risk, tournament gaming makes an ideal starting point for anyone wishing to experience real money poker!
Rebuys and Addons
Some tournaments also offer the chance of rebuys (Entering the tournament again if eliminated) and addons (Adding additional chips to your stack).

On the poker lobby

You can choose to play either Sit and Go tournaments or Scheduled tournaments, from our lobby. Simply apply the filters to see your games of choice, and double click on the tournament that you would like to play in from the menu. Once the buy-in has been settled, you’ll be ready to join the action.
There are several tournament variants, from the Sit and Go Tournaments that start when enough players sit at the table, to the Scheduled Tournaments that start at the planned time. Browse through our poker client to get a full view of what we offer.
