About Tournaments

Tournament Types

Superpoker is pleased to offer a wide variety of tournament formats and games available to you 24 hours a day! In addition to being a fun and exciting way to gain a greater all-round poker experience, tournaments are also a powerful way to build your bankroll and get a great return on a minimal investment. In a tournament, as opposed to a live ring-game, the most money one can risk is the Buy-in for that tournament. All players start with the same amount of chips and play continues until one player has won all the chips. Tournament chips have no cash value. Tournaments are available in all the poker games we offer; Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo.

We offer Multi-table, Sit & Go, & Heads-up tournaments in various Freeze-out, Re-buy and Shoot-out formats. We also offer satellite tournaments to gain entry into much bigger events and freerolls that cost nothing to enter. Please see the tournament lobby for the exact details and rules for each tournament.


If more than one table is needed to accommodate the number of registered players in a tournament, it is known as a multi-table tournament. During a Multi-table tournament, as players are eliminated, players will be moved randomly from one table to another in order to keep the number of players at each table as balanced as possible. Although we try to be fair and move players in relation to their position with the dealer button, a player may end up moving from their blinds and move to a blind position again.

Sit & Go

Sit & Go tournaments are events that do not have a scheduled start time. They start when the needed number of registered players is reached. When the prearranged number of competitors is reached each participant is notified that the tournament is about to start. Example: A No Limit Hold’em one table Sit & Go will start as soon as ten players are registered.


When a contest is between 2 players only, it is referred to as Heads-up. Heads-up Shoot-out tournaments are a good way to improve your winning game, as you will end up facing one opponent most of the time to win any tournament. The rules are the same with Heads-up play with the exception that the player with the “dealer button” posts the small blind and will act first pre-flop then last for the remainder of the hand. The player who posts the big blind is dealt first.

Re-buy & Add-on Tournament

Some tournaments allow for players to conditionally Re-buy & Add-on during a predetermined time period in the tournament. They allow for players to continue in the tournament and still have the opportunity to win the tournament for a Re-buy or with one available Add-on. Re-buy & Add-on tournaments are a great way to increase the prize pool and the number of players who will qualify for prizes. All Re-buys & Add-on monies are included in the prize pool.


In a Freeze-out tournament players make a single Buy-in and upon losing all their chips, will be eliminated from the tournament. As players become eliminated the tables are combined with other tables until there is a final table and ultimately there is one player left with all the chips.


A Shoot-out tournament consists of a limited number of players competing on different tables. In round 1, players compete until there is one player left at each table with all the chips. In round 2 the winners from round 1 are then combined at other tables and they again play until there is one player left with all the chips. A Shoot-out tournament can have between two (Heads-up) to ten players on each table competing over 1 or more rounds. The number of rounds and players per table varies and can be found in the tournament lobby.


Following the multi table tournament format, Bounty events offer players the chance to recoup their buy-in and win cash, even if they don’t place in the money. When buying in to a Bounty tournament, a pre designated percentage of the tournament buy-in in placed on each player’s head as a bounty – players will receive an instant cash win for every player they bust out of the tournament.


Satellite tournaments are events in which the prize is an entry to a larger tournament (with a greater buy-in amount). Many players earn a seat via satellites to our larger buy-in events. For example, players can buy-in directly to our monthly $250,000 main event, or win there way the big show via satellite for as low as $2!

Listed under the Satellite tab within Tournaments, you’ll find that satellites can play out in a variety of formats, including multi table, shoot out or as a sit & go. Registration is identical however the difference comes in the manner by which the prize pool is paid out. For example, if you are joining a $10 satellite to our weekly $100,000 guaranteed event ($109 buy-in), one seat will be awarded for every $109 in the prize pool (or the buy-in of the event the satellite feeds). As registration and the prize pool grows, so are the number of seats to be awarded likely to grow. Any leftover prize pool money that cannot quite make it to the value of a whole seat, is paid out as cash prizes. The number of cash prizes awarded after seats are allotted will depend on the particular tournament – so players are asked to check the Tournament Lobby for full details!

Satellites to Live Events

Throughout the year, Superpoker offers players the opportunity to take their game offline and in to the realm of brick & mortar casinos. Satellites to live events run in the same manner as regular satellites, only the ’seats’ awarded are prize packages to live events including the World Poker Tour and Aussie Millions. Check under the Superpoker Events tab within Tournaments for a current listing.


Superpoker regularly offers tournaments that require no Buy-in or registration fees, no risks or conditions. These true freerolls are our way of giving back to our players.
