TOURNAMENT PAYOUT STRUCTURE

These payout tables provide the percentage of the prize pool awarded to the player who finishes in the indicated position. Select the column with the number of registrants to find the percentage payout applied. NOTE: Fractions of cents are rounded down to the next whole cent. Where rounding down occurs, the total prize pool paid will be less than the posted prize pool by up to 6 cents.

TOURNAMENT BLINDS STRUCTURE

A blind is part of a player's bet, unless the structure of a game or the situation requires part or all of a particular blind to be "dead." It is a mandatory bet posted before the cards are dealt used to stimulate the action on the first betting round. There are usually two blinds: the small blind and the big blind - both are posted before the start of the hand. Each player takes a turn posting blinds. The table below shows small/big blinds at each level of any of our tournaments.
