What is a tournament?
A tournament is a type of game in which each player starts with an equal amount of chips. All of the players in the tournament continue to play until one player has collected all of the chips. Each tournament has a buy-in as well as an entry fee. The buy-in is put into the prize pool while BetMGM Poker keeps the entry fee. The size of the prize pool depends on the number of people playing in the tournament and will be paid out in its entirety to the winners. Dealing each player a card starts a tournament. The player with the highest card starts the game as the dealer. Each player's goal is to collect as many chips as possible. Players who lose all of their chips are out of the tournament. As the tournament progresses, more and more players are eliminated until only one remains: the tournament winner.
