Poker tournaments involve a competition where all players start with the same amount of chips, and throughout the tournament, the mandatory bets (blinds) increase. The ultimate winner is determined at the tournament's conclusion by the player who accumulates all the chips. These games are played using special tournament tokens.
Tournament formats vary based on factors such as the cost of entry (buy-in), the possibility of multiple buy-ins (re-buy), and the blinds structure. Players should obtain information about the tournament format and rules before starting the game. By participating in the game, players agree to abide by the house rules.
