Guaranteed Tournaments are generally multi-table tournaments
with more than 10 players. Guaranteed means that there
is a Guaranteed prize pool, no matter how many entrants
are in the tournament. Guaranteed tournaments have a buy-in
and an entry fee. Usually the prize pool is guaranteed
above the maximum number of players in the tournament,
this ensures bigger prizes even if there are only a few
Some Guaranteed tournaments have "re-buys"
and "add-ons". This means that if you lose all
of your chips you can "re-buy" into the tournament
and continue to play. Usually the re-buy is the same as
the original buy-in amount.
An add-on is usually offered at the first break, in which
the re-buy period ends. Add-ons give those who are short
stacked a chance to add to their chips. The add-on is
generally the same as the original buy-in amount. Some
tournaments have "double add-on" which will
give you twice as many chips as the starting chip count,
but for the same cost of an original buy-in.
A freezeout tournament means there are no re-buys, once
you lose all of your chips, you are out of the tournament.
