MULTI TABLE POKER TOURNAMENT
By George Steinbach

You may register for a multi table tournament during the predetermined registration period prior to the start of the tournament. Registration continues through the registration end date or until the maximum number of players allowed register. Most tournaments require an entrance fee upon registration, however some tournaments are free to enter (free rolls).


Breaking Tables
A tournament always includes only the minimum number of tables required to seat the players. As the number of players is reduced, the number of tables is also reduced. A table is removed as soon as the remaining players can all fit around fewer tables.

The table closed is the one with the least number of players seated. If more than one table has the smallest number of players, the table closed is randomly chosen from the two. Players from the closed table are randomly seated in the available seats at the remaining tables.


Hand for Hand Play Mode

In hand for hand play mode, all hands are dealt at the same time at all tables. This occurs whenever there is more than one table, and there is a significant change in prize money between two places. For example, in a 350 player tournament, the tournament changes to hand for hand play when there are 41 players, 31 players, 21 players and 11 players remaining. It stays hand for hand until one player has been knocked out in each situation.
