Multi-Table Tournaments

Torsdag 19 November, Benjamin Pritchard

Poker Tourrnament4Multi-Table Tournaments, also known as MTTs, are tournaments that simultaneously run more than one table and accommodate many poker players. Players are eliminated until there are nine of them left, which then make up the final table. You can find an MTT running online at any time of the day, most of them lasting for several hours.

All players buy into these tournaments or win may also be able to win a satellite tournament which qualifies them to play in a larger MTT. Players seated at all tables start out in a multi-table tournament with the same number of chips. Also, all tables use identical timed blind structures, so the blinds go up on all tables at the same time (this typically occurs every 10-15 minutes). Small and big blinds are paid by one player per round, where the small blind is exactly half of the big blind. In longer tournaments, sometimes an ante is introduced in the later stages of a multi-table tournament in order to speed up the action.

Every multi-table tournament begins at a scheduled time, (as opposed to sit & gos, which start when the table is full). Any player wanting to participate in a particular multi-table tournament must buy-in prior to the scheduled start time. As they register, players are seated at tables with usually nine other players and condensed down to fewer and fewer tables as players are knocked out. You can also expect to get about five minutes for break per every hour you are involved in a multi-table tournament.

Payouts are dependent on the number of players who join the multi-table tournament. If there are more registrants, there will be more paying places that share the prize pool, unless however, you are in a multi-table tournament that offers a fixed prize (e.g. a ticket to a bigger buy-in tournament).
Most multi-table tournaments are Texas Hold ‘em tournaments. You will also find some Omaha and 7 Card Stud multi-table tournaments. Multi-table tournaments come in a variety of styles including freerolls, add ons, re-buys, turbos, satellites, and bounties. These styles are the general types you will find, but as online poker rooms seek to find exciting new promotions, they often come up with unique and novel ways to present the multi-table tournament.

If you select the right multi-table tournament, you will find that your money can go a long way and keep you busy for quite a while.
