Tournament House Rules
- Cards Speak
- Check-raising is allowed
Cards that are accidently dealt face up shall be shown to all players, and placed at
the bottom of the deck. Dealing continues as if the mistake did not happen, and the
spoiled card is replaced after the normal deal is completed.
- There are 2 blinds - the small blind and the big blind.
- The small blind is made by the player to left of the dealer.
- The big blind is made by the player to the left of small blind.
- The blinds will start at 1 and 2 units.
- Blinds will double every 30 minutes.
- Blinds do not plateau.
- When blinds reach 30/60, single-denomination chips will be raked off and replaced
with the appropriate amount of higher denomination chips. Odd chips are rounded up to 5.
The number of tables depends on the number of players
- Up to 9 - One Table
- 10 to 18 - Two Tables
- 19 to 27 - Three Tables
The table and seat for each player is determined by drawing cards
When starting with 2 tables, play continues at each table until 4 (or fewer)
players remain at each table. Players at the first table to reach 4 players
will stop playing until second table reaches 4 players.
When starting with 3 tables, play continues at all tables until 16 players
(or fewer) remain. The remaining players are assigned randomly and evenly
to two tables. Play resumes as if there had been two tables to start.
- Seats at the merged tables are assigned by drawing cards.
The entry money will be divided among the 4 top finishers, according to the
- 1st place = 50%
- 2nd place = 25%
- 3rd place = 15%
- 4th place = 10%
Negotiation of how the prize money is distributed is allowed when the number
of players is 4 or fewer. For instance, say a tournment started with 16
players, and 2 remain at the final table. If the two players each have
approximately half the chips, they could decide to split the first and
second place money equally rather than battle out to the end. 16 players
means a total purse of $320, $160 for first place, $80 for second. By agreeing to split the prize money, they would each get $120. All remaining players must agree on a new division of prize money. If not all agree, play continues.
