Sit and Go Tournaments | Multiple Table Tournaments
  Sit and Go Tournaments
  1. These are single table tournaments
  2. The tournament begins shortly after all seats are filled
  3. Once a player chooses a seat and the tournament begins, they cannot change seats
  4. Refunds are automatically given to players only if they leave the table prior to the tournament starting
  5. Breaks are not given during sit and go tournaments
  6. All players begin with equal chip amounts in our standard sit and go tournaments. See standard sit and go tournament structures
  7. PinupPoker.com does not sanction, facillate, or enforce deals. If you make a deal you are doing so at your own risk and deal making is not allowed in the chat box at the table. Prize pools are distributed according to the detail found here. Deals are not enforced by the cardroom.
  8. The button is assigned to the player who first takes a seat at the table.
  9. Tournaments are played until one player has all the chips
  10. In tournaments when two players get eliminated in the same hand, the person who started the hand with the most chips gets the higher finish and awarded the corresponding prize pool for that placement. If the players began the hand with the same amount of chips, they will tie and the prize pools will be combined and equally distributed. (For example, if 2 people who started a hand with the same number of chips are eliminated at the same time and would be 9th (which pays $60) and 10th (which pays $40), their standings would show tied for 9th and each player would be paid $50)
  11. Players who have an active internet connection and do not act during their turn will be folded.
  12. PinupPoker.com uses the dead button feature to ensure that all players take the big blind in their turn. As such, it is possible that a player will receive the button for more than one hand. It is also possible that a big blind is posted in a hand but no small blind, if the person who was to receive the small blind was eliminated from the tournament in the previous hand
  13. If there is a split pot, not equally divisible by the number of players in the hand, the 'extra' chips will be awarded to the player closest to the left of the button.
  14. In limit tournaments bets are limited to 4 during each betting round, the initial bet plus 3 raises. This is true regardless of the number of players remaining in the tournament.
  15. In no-limit and pot-limit tournaments there is no restriction on the number of raises allowed during a betting round.
  16. When two players remain in the tournament, the player due to receive the big blind will do so and the player in the small blind position will inherit the button.
  17. Players who lose connection during an event will be blinded off until such a time they can rejoin their tournament.
  18. In the event a tournament is cancelled due to technical difficulties at PinupPoker.com, players who were already eliminated from the event will lose their buy-in and fees. The remaining players in the event will be paid the prize money based on their chip stacks and standings in the tournament at the time the tournament stops running.
  19. Our standard all-in policy applies to our tournaments.
  20. Soft playing or chip dumping is not allowed. Players involved in these or other unethical activities may be eliminated from a tournament and/or have their accounts terminated.
  21. Tournament players must adhere to the rules outlined in our User Agreement
  22. PinupPoker.com reserves the right to alter the rules and make final decisions on all tournament related issues as they arise, and at our sole discretion.
  23. During game play, players are prohibited from chatting about the play of their and/or their opponents' hands until all actions for that hand are complete. Such chat could result in disqualification or other penalties.
  24. In case of disputes decisions made by PinupPoker.com are final.

  Multi-Table Tournaments
  1. Registration for multi-table tournaments is open until the tournament's posted start time
  2. Once registered for an event, the buy-in is non-refundable.
  3. Unless noted for a specific promotion, all players will begin with the same chip amount.
  4. Players are seated at random. Seat changes are not allowed.
  5. In multi-table tournaments, the button is randomly assigned to a player at the table.
  6. PinupPoker.com does not sanction, facillate, or enforce deals. If you make a deal you are doing so at your own risk and deal making is not allowed in the chat box at the table. Prize pools are awarded according to the prize pool payout listed within the tournament information page for that event. Deals are not enforced by the cardroom.
  7. Tournaments are played until one player has all the chips
  8. Players who do not show up for their event will either be eliminated from the event, or will be blinded off until they arrive. This varies per tournament but generally in real-money buy-in tournaments players are blinded off and in promotional tournaments players are given 20 minutes to arrive before they are eliminated from the event.
  9. During the tournament, information about when the next break will occur will be displayed in the lower-left.
  10. As a tournament progresses the tournament software will combine tables and try to maintain an equal number of players at all the remaining tables. Players will see a note in the lower left of the table telling them that tables are being consolidated.
  11. If a player needs to be moved to maintain balance, the tournament software will choose the player due to pay the big blind at one of the tables with the most remaining players, and move that player to one of the tables with the least remaining number of players. The player who is moved will be seated at the new table as far away from the big blind as possible given the available seats. This advantage is meant to equalize the disadvantage of being moved to a table where the player is less familiar with their opponents.
  12. In limit tournaments bets are limited to 4 during each betting round, the initial bet plus 3 raises. This is true regardless of the number of players remaining in the tournament.
  13. In no-limit and pot-limit tournaments there is no restriction on the number of raises allowed during a betting round.
  14. If there is a split pot, not equally divisible by the number of players in the hand, the 'extra' chips will be awarded to the player closest to the left of the button.
  15. In tournaments when two players get eliminated in the same hand, the person who started the hand with the most chips gets the higher finish and awarded the corresponding prize pool for that placement
  16. Players moved to a new table will not be able to play until the button passes them. PinupPoker.com uses the dead button feature to ensure that all players take the big blind in their turn. As such, it is possible that a player will receive the button for more than one hand. It is also possible that a big blind is posted in a hand but no small blind, if the person who was to receive the small blind was eliminated from the tournament in the previous hand.
  17. When two players remain in the tournament, the player due to receive the big blind will do so and the player in the small blind position will inherit the button.
  18. Hand-by-hand dealing may be enacted during any tournament. This means that the tournament software will wait until a hand is played at all remaining tables, before dealing the next hand. This discourages the practice of slow playing.
  19. Players who have an active internet connection and fail to act during their turn will be folded
  20. Players who lose connection during an event will be blinded off until such a time they can rejoin their tournament
  21. Please note that the card room no longer provides protected all-ins (protection of your bet when you get disconnected) in tournaments. If your computer disconnects in the middle of a hand, your hand will be folded unless you return to the hand before your time to act expires.
  22. During game play, players are prohibited from chatting about the play of their and/or their opponents' hands until all actions for that hand are complete. Such chat could result in disqualification or other penalties.
  23. Tournament registration must meet the minimum requirement for that event or the tournament will not run. In this event, all buy-ins and fees will be returned to the players' accounts
  24. In the event a tournament is cancelled due to technical difficulties at PinupPoker.com, players who were already eliminated from the event will lose their buy-in and fees. The remaining players in the event will be paid the prize money based on their chip stacks and standings in the tournament at the time the tournament stops running.
  25. Soft playing or chip dumping is not allowed. Players involved in these or other unethical activities may be eliminated from a tournament and/or have their accounts terminated.
  26. Tournament players must adhere to the rules outlined in our User Agreement
  27. PinupPoker.com reserves the right to disqualify any player who does not follow tournament guidelines or acts inappropriately during a tournament.
  28. PinupPoker.com reserves the right to change any tournament time, guaranteed prize pool, or event without notice.
  29. Reserves the right to alter the rules and make final decisions on all tournament related issues as they arise, and at our sole discretion
  30. In case of disputes decisions made by PinupPoker.com are final.
