Shootout Tournaments

In a traditional poker tournament, tables will be balanced and remain full throughout the entire duration of the tournament. This means over time, players will be moved and tables split to ensure every table is as full as possible at all times. Play is continuous until the winner is determined!

Oddspoker features Shootout tournaments, which differ greatly in structure and play style. Shootouts consist of several rounds of single-table tournaments, with winners from each individual table progressing on to the second round.

A simple example is a Shootout tournament with 100 entrants. Ten tables with ten players each will begin the tournament for round one. A certain number of players from each table will progress to round two, and this will change depending on the tournament - simply check the tournament details in the Oddspoker software to see the winner and payout structure.

In our example, the top three players from each table will advance, meaning a total of 30 players remain. Round two will begin with three tables of ten, and again the top three players of each table will progress to the next round, with nine players battling it out at the final table!

Shootout tournaments are exciting events with a constant structure and several rounds. It takes skill to continue through each round successfully, and Oddspoker offers the best online poker software to ensure players will always have the best tournament structures for novices and professionals alike.
