Do you have what it takes to be the last man standing? Find out by playing in our Shootout Tournaments.
Unlike standard Multi-Table Tournaments, where players are moved to keep the tables balanced as others are knocked out, each table in a Shootout Tournament plays down to a single winner − just like a Sit & Go. Win your table and you’ll move on to face the winners of the other tables in the tournament.
In a Double Shootout, players have to win their starting table before advancing to the final table. For example, a standard Double Shootout will have a field of 81 players, with the nine table winners moving on to the final table. In a Triple Shootout, players have to win two tables before advancing to the final table.

Typically, a scheduled Shootout Tournament will be allowed to start without a full field, meaning that not every starting table will have an equal number of players.
In some situations, however, we may force a balance to the tables before starting a scheduled Shootout Tournament. For example, in a standard Heads-Up Shootout Tournament where there are 37 entrants registered at the time the tournament is scheduled to start, we will unregister the last five players who registered in order to balance the tournament with 32 players.
In instances where a scheduled Heads-Up Shootout is allowed to run without being a perfect number of players, first round byes will be randomly allocated. In these cases, players who receive a bye will not have to face a first-round opponent and will automatically advance to the second round of the shootout.
In most shootout tournaments, players will carry their chip stacks from table to table the same they would in any other tournament. In these cases, blind levels will automatically be adjusted at the start of the next round based on the average chip stack of the remaining players. Players will then, on average, start each round with the same starting chips to big blind ratio as they had in Round 1.
If the chips do not carry over, every player will start each new table with an equal chip stack and the blind structure will be the same as in the first round.
Your overall finishing position in a Shootout Tournament is determined by what position you finish in at your own table. For example, in an 81 player Double Shootout Tournament players who finish second at their opening table will finish in the 10th through 18th spots for the entire tournament. Players who finish third at their opening table will finish in the 19th through 27th spots, and so on.
Of the nine players who finish in the same spot at their respective tables, finishing positions will be determined by the order in which they are eliminated, with the highest spots going to the player who lasted the longest. However, payouts are awarded so that all players who finish in the same spot at their table will receive the same payout. In the above example, the player who finishes in 10th place will receive the same payout as the player who finishes in 18th place.
