TOURNAMENT LEADER BOARD TOURNAMENTS - ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR THE TOURNAMENT LEADER BOARD TOURNAMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
GENERAL RULES APPLICABLE TO ALL TOURNAMENTS:
All tournaments will begin at the time designated in the tournament details, which may be found in the Tournament lobby.
Each player will be assigned a seat and he/she may not change his/her assigned seat.
Members may un-register from a tournament up to the time it starts OR until the tournament has reached capacity.
There is a deal for the button at the start of the tournament; high card is designated the Dealer for the first hand.
The button moves in the conventional clockwise manner so that no player is the Dealer two hands in a row. Occasionally, a player may become the button without having played in the blinds due to other Members being eliminated (this commonly occurs in online tournaments due to technical software issues). This may happen to any player during the course of a tournament and therefore creates no long-term advantage.
If two (2) Members should be eliminated simultaneously, the player with the largest number of chips at the beginning of the hand will be designated as having finished higher. It is impossible for two (2) people to be eliminated simultaneously when going heads up at the final table.
If two (2) or more Members should be eliminated simultaneously with the same amount of chips at the beginning of the hand, these Members will tie and split the prize amount awarded to all places affected.
When a tournament is down to the last two (2) Members, the button will post the small blind and be first to act in the initial round. The big blind will then be first to act in the following rounds.
The tournament finishes when one (1) player has won all the tournament chips and is declared the winner.
Any play deemed unethical by SK in its sole discretion (including, without limitation, team play, soft play or chip dumping) will result in the applicable player(s) being disqualified from the tournament.
As Members are eliminated over the course of a tournament, tables will be consolidated to keep a full complement of Members. Members may be forced to post the blinds when arriving at a new table. Table reassignments are an inherent part of tournaments and apply equally to all Members.
Members and observers are required to use the chat function in a friendly and considerate way. At no time are Members or observers allowed to discuss or comment on live hands. SK reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove the chat privilege and/or permanently ban the account for any user in violation of this requirement.
We reserve the right to provide substitute prizes or cash value in the event that we or the vendor are unable to meet reasonable delivery requirements or in the event that a tournament winner is located outside the continental United States. See general list of tournament prizes.
