Blinds/antes are raised consistently throughout the tournament.What is a Sit & Go Tournament?Sit & Go Tournaments usually take place on a single table and have a maximum of 10 players. Play begins as soon as all players are seated (seats are assigned randomly) and continues until the player that has all the chips remains, and the runner ups usually receive prizes. What is a Multi-Table Tournament?Multi-Table Tournaments have many players spread across many tables. They have set starting times and players must register in advance in order to play. The closing time of registration for each tournament will be announced in the Lobby. All seat assignments are randomly drawn prior to the beginning of the tournament.As play progresses and players are knocked out, the remaining players are moved to different tables in order to keep them full. Tables will break down from the highest numbered table to the lowest numbered tables. The transferring of players from one table to another (as a result of tables breaking down) is done in a completely random process. This process continues until only one player remains.Who plays first?Texas Hold'em and Omaha tournaments begin by dealing every player one card. The Player who receives the highest card will be the dealer at his/her table for the first round of the tournament. If two players are dealt the same high card, the suit of spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs respectively will determine who starts as the dealer.How is the winner determined?Tournaments will run until one player wins all the chips.How are players eliminated?Players are eliminated from Play when they lose all their chips.How much does each player win?The Prize structure is published in the Tournament Lobby and depends on the number of entrants.How many times can I raise in each betting round?Pacific Poker's betting structure will be one bet and three raises for each betting round.Do I have to play the Blinds?Yes, Players are required to put their blinds.What are the Blinds?The Small Blind is the player immediately to the left of the dealer button and the Big Blind is the player to the immediate left of the Small Blind. It is possible for a player to take two Big Blinds in a row.For example, if one player had just played the Big Blind at a table which then broke down, that player could then be seated at the Big Blind position in the new table.When only two players remain, the player due to play the Big Blind will do so and the Small Blind will inherit the button. The Small Blind or button will act first prior to the flop and second after the flop.Are there any breaks in the tournament play?There are no breaks during Sit & Go Tournaments. In Multi-Table tournaments, there is a 5 minute break every hour.How many chips do I start with?In Single Table tournaments, players start with either $800 in chips for tournaments with buy-ins less than $30 or with $1,000 in chips for tournaments with higher buy-ins. The Levels for these tournaments go up after every ten hands. In Multi-table tournaments, levels are on a time basis and the time may vary depending on the tournament.Can I exchange my prize?The prize payoffs will be according to the Payout Schedule (the "Payoff Structure") and there are no prize exchanges.What happens if two (or more) players go out on the same hand?If two (or more) players are eliminated on the same hand, the player who started the hand with the most chips will be awarded the higher finishing position.What will happen if I attempt to cheat? All Players are required to abide by the House Rules. Those who do not abide by the House Rules may be asked by PacificPoker.com Personnel to leave the Tournament and/or to stop playing at PacificPoker.com. There should be no soft playing or chip dumping during Tournaments.

If you are registered for two tournaments with overlapping scheduling, PacificPoker.com will refund your buy-in for the tournament with the later commencement time.Can I ever play 'on the button' twice in a row?PacificPoker.com uses a "forward moving button" rule in its tournaments. According to this rule, no player ever receives the button twice in consecutive hands; at the completion of every hand, the button is moved clockwise to the Small Blind. The implication of this rule is that when players are eliminated, there may be players who get a reprieve from one or both blinds. The forward moving button is common practice in online poker due to the technicalities involved in adjusting the blinds after players are eliminated. Since these are basically random occurrences, no player will receive any long-term advantage, and the rule is necessarily fair for all players.What happens if a tournament is cancelled?If a Tournament is cancelled due to technical issues, players who were eliminated prior to the cancellation will lose their buy-in and entry fee. The remaining Players will be refunded their buy-ins and entry fees and will equally divide up the buy-in fees from the players already eliminated, regardless of the chip standing when the tournament was halted.Rules and Regulations PacificPoker.com reserves the right to change the rules and render final decisions on all matters herein at its sole discretion.
