  7. The final level is played until the tournament winner is declared.
  8. At the start of the poker tournament, you are dealt one card face up. The player receiving the highest card by suit (high – low: spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs) will get the dealer button for the first hand.
  9. When only 2 players are remaining, the small blind has the button and will act first before the flop.
  10. If a player who is the small blind is eliminated, the button does not move. This ensures the next player in order does not miss the big blind. If the player who is in big blind position is eliminated, the button moves and one player receives the benefit of not posting the big blind for that round. All players have an equal opportunity to benefit from this scenario.
  11. Tournaments are played straight through until one player has all of the chips: No Breaks. So if inclined…make sure the beer and potato chips are handy.
  12. When you lose all of your poker chips, you are out of the tournament and placed in the order that you were eliminated. ie. In a 10 player tournaments, if you are the 8th player eliminated you finished in 3rd place and will receive your portion of the prize pool of free poker chips.
  13. If more than one player is eliminated in the same hand, the player that had the most chips at the start of the hand finishes in the higher placing. If the eliminated players had the same amount of chips at the start of the hand, the players will tie for the position. ie. If two players tie for 2nd place, the prize pool for second and third place are combined, each of the tied players receives 50% of the combined total.
  14. will not assist players who make deals during tournaments. The tournaments continue until the winner is declared and the payoffs are made according to the laid out structure.
  15. No soft playing allowed…All players should be played against with the same intensity; team play may result in being banned from future tournaments and the site.
  16. If you lose connection or your computer freezes, have All-ins remaining and also have chips at stake in a hand, you will be declared All-in based on the All-in rules.
  17. You must understand the accept risks of Internet disconnections. If you are not connected before a hand starts, you will be dealt cards and then folded automatically. If you are in position to post a blind and are not connected, the blind is posted automatically and your hand is folded. This continues until you re-establish a connection or have run out of chips.
  18. In the unlikely event of a server problem crash, all tournaments in play are deemed as cancelled. Once the server re-starts, we will refund the full Buy-in and entry fee. The total buy-in amount of those who had been eliminated previously will be split and distributed to remaining players according to chip stack at the time of the interruption.
