What is a Multi-Table Tournament?
Players start multi-table poker tournaments with a fixed number of chips and play until one player has all the chips. Blinds and antes increase as the tournament progresses, and as players are eliminated tables are consolidated together. The number of tables is eventually reduced to one final table which is composed of the top table winners of the field.
The total sum of all the entry fees is divided up and awarded to the top players in accordance to the total amount of entries for the poker tournament. The hosting charity will keep 20%-25% of the buy in or less. For example the $300+$30 GOLDSTRIKE Tournament has a $300 entry fee with a $30 fee which goes to the hosting charity. The $20 Early Bird Tournament is a normal 25% to the hosting charity, therefore $15 would go to the prize pool and $5 would go to the hosting charity.
This is typically indicated on the multi-table poker tournament detail page by ($15+$5), this would be a $20 tournament with $15 going to the prize pool and $5 going to the hosting charity.
