With these you log in and take a seat at a table and wait for the table to fill up with nine players, then you start play.

These are multi-table tournaments that feature no registration fees!

Whatever the prizes, these are super popular tournaments and they fill up fast, so register early.

Players buy in for a fixed number of chips – all players start with the same number of chips. As players are eliminated from each table, the tables are recombined and reduced until the final round when the last nine players face-off against one another. This is pure poker magic, and once you try it, you will be addicted.
