Tournament Types

Multi-Table Tournaments

In a Multi-Table Tournament (MTT), players start with an equal, fixed number of chips. Players at numerous tables compete for one another's chips as the blinds and/or antes increase incrementally. When you run out of chips, you are eliminated from the tournament. As players are eliminated, tables are ‘broken’, meaning players are moved to keep tables full, or evenly ‘balanced’. Eventually, the last few surviving players with chips are brought together at the final table, where the winner is the individual who wins all the chips from his or her opponents. Cash prizes are awarded to top finishers on the basis of number of tournament entries. All MTT’s can be found in the software under the ‘tournament’ tab.

Freezeout

Every player begins to play poker with the same amount of poker chips and the tournament continues until one poker player has won all of the online poker chips. As soon as a poker player loses their chips, they are eliminated from the tournament. Prizes relate to the finishing position of each player, and the number of places paid is in relation to the total number of poker players that have entered the online poker tournament.

Rebuy

This is similar to an online poker freezeout tournament but has an additional feature. Players who lose all of their poker chips, or whose stack drops below its opening amount within a specified time period, can purchase additional poker chips and continue to play in the tournament. This rebuy period is for a specified amount of time only, usually 30 or 60 minutes.

There is also an add-on option after the rebuy period. This is open to all of the players and allows additional poker chips to be purchased. If a player loses all his chips on the final hand before the add-on option begins, he can purchase a rebuy and an add-on at this stage.

After the rebuy stage is over, the poker tournament continues as a freezeout until one poker player wins all the chips, with the prize structure similar to that of a freezeout.

Sit’n’Go

A Sit’n’Go is a tournament which does not have a fixed start time. It begins whenever all the seats are filled. There are many types of Sit’n’Go, ranging in size from heads-up to 180 players. These tournaments can be found by clicking on the ‘Sit’n’Go’ tab in the main lobby of Mansion Poker software.

Double Up

“Double Up” is a specific type of Sit’n’Go in which the prize pool is divided equally between half of the registered players. Double Up Sit’n’Go’s tournaments are available as 4, 6 or 10-handed. For example, in a $10+$1 6-handed Double Up Sit’n’Go, as soon as 3 players have been eliminated, the 3 remaining players are credited with $20 each. All Double Up Sit’n’Go’s can be found in the software under the ‘Sit’n’Go’ -> ‘Double Up’ tab.

Jackpot Sit’n’Go’s

In this type of Sit’n’Go tournament, part of the entry price goes into a pool forming a jackpot prize. This jackpot prize is progressive and is won by any player who succeeds in winning the same tournament a certain amount of times in a row. Jackpot Sit’n’Go’s can be found in the software under the ‘Sit’n’Go’ -> ‘Jackpot Sit’n’Go’ tab. Check out the Fort Knox, Rio and Maui pages for more info

Steps Sit’n’Go’s

Step Tournaments are 10-player Sit'n'Go’s. Every time you win a tournament you receive a token to the next, higher Step. Buy in to Step 1 for only $0.16 and climb all the way to Step 7 to win a $215 token to the Sunday $200,000 Gtd. All Steps Sit’n’Go’s can be found in the software under the ‘Sit’n’Go’ -> ‘Steps Sit'n'Go’ tab.

Flip SNG

In the Flip Sit’n’Go’s, all players go all-in on the first hand and the winner of that hand takes the entire prize-pool. In the case of a tie, an extra hand will be played. These special Sit’n’Go tournaments are available as 2, 4, 6 or 10-handed and can be found in the software under the ‘Sit’n’Go’ -> ‘New Flip SNG’ tab.

Turbo

Turbo relates to the time of the blind levels. In turbo tournaments, the blind levels increase at a faster rate. Players have the same amount of time to act on their turn, but the blind speed affects strategy. Turbo poker tournaments come in both freezeout and rebuy format. Note: A turbo rebuy would have a shorter rebuy period.

Satellites

A Satellite is a tournament in which the prize is an entry into a larger tournament. It can be less expensive to enter a satellite than it would be to enter the main tournament directly. Satellites exist as Sit’n’Go’s and as MTT’s.

Knockout Bounty

In a Knockout Bounty tournament, standard tournament rules apply, however the buy-in is split between the usual contribution to the prize pool and a bounty that is placed on each player’s head. A bounty cash prize is awarded for each player’s elimination and it is immediately credited to the hunter’s account.

How You Can Enter

To join the online poker tournament, click on the 'Tournament' tab in the lobby and select any available online poker tournament that is open for registration. You will be automatically seated once your online poker tournament starts. Note: If you are already playing in the maximum number of online poker tables allowed you will receive a dialog box asking you if you'd like to quit one of the tables. This will enable the online poker tournament table to launch. You will be marked 'away from the table' until you join the online poker tournament table.

Disconnections

If someone playing poker online such as Omaha poker loses internet connection, play will continue and blinds/antes are posted automatically. Online poker players should log back in as soon as possible to continue their game or risk being blinded/anted out of the online poker tournament.

If an online poker player is disconnected during a hand, they will be given a period of around 30 seconds to re-connect before their poker hand is folded. An exception to this is when an online poker player is 'all-in' due to posting a blind.

If an online poker player chooses to sit out, they are considered 'away from the table'. This means the online poker player is dealt cards which are folded in turn, and will continue to pay blinds. If you time-out or disconnect, you will be automatically marked as 'away from the table'. You must uncheck this box once you re-join the online poker game.

Note: MANSIONPOKER.com does not accept responsibility for disconnected online poker players regardless of cause.

Game Play

Blind Levels

Blind levels when you play poker online increase at regular intervals during a poker tournament such as Omaha poker. The blind level stages and time period between each is shown in the 'Details' section in the information window for each online poker tournament.

When you play poker online, since blinds must be posted it is done automatically. Sometimes, a dead button may be used; this means there is only a big blind posted with no small blind. This only occurs when the online poker player on the big blind in the previous hand was eliminated from the poker tournament. This is simply because they would have been the small blind on the next hand. This is enforced to make sure that every online poker player posts an equal amount in blinds in one deal cycle.

Table Seating

The software makes sure that when you play poker online, the poker tables are kept balanced in terms of seated players. Therefore when poker players are eliminated the remaining poker players are moved. The seating is randomly assigned so poker players can end up being moved several times during any online poker tournament.

As the number of poker players is reduced, when playing poker online, the software will close tables until the final poker table is reached. Online poker players are automatically removed from the poker table once they have lost all their poker chips unless it is a 'Rebuy Tournament'.

Multi-Table Tournament (MTT) Payout Structure

When playing poker online, the number of poker prizes and their value is dependent on the total number of online poker players that register. The following online poker table shows the percentage of the poker prize pool received by a poker player, based on the number of online poker tournament entrants:
