Freeroll Tournaments

A freeroll tournament is usually a multi-table tournament with more than 10 players. Freeroll means that there are no buy-in or entry fees to play in the tournament. Some of the Texas Holdem poker freeroll tournaments do have an entry requirement that must be met before free entry is granted. Most Texas Holdem Poker rooms have daily and weekly freeroll tournaments.

Sit 'n' Go Tournaments

Sit and Go tournaments are usually single table tournaments, but can also be multi-table. These are extremely popular online.

Sit and Go tournaments have a specific buy-in and entry fee amount, which then forms the prize pool. This is split up by the winners with the top three finishers usually sharing the prize money.

Some Texas Holdem Poker rooms let you create your own Sit and Go tournaments. This is a great feature that allows you to play with friends all in the comfort of your own homes. This is great if you have friends that are in different cities, countries and continents.

There are poker tournaments available for all different levels with buy-ins as low as $4 to $5 where as many as 4 or 5 of the participants finish "in the money". These are perfect for beginners. Of course there are buy-ins for those wanting to wager more and win more.

Guaranteed Tournaments

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 tables competing.

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.
