Eliminations in TonyBet Poker Tournaments

Eliminations

When one player accumulates all remaining chips, or prize money must be split equally between remaining players (e.g. identical prizes), the tournament will end.

The player’s starting stack immediately prior to fantasyland attainment determines player elimination. Fantasyland and its continuance are based upon the hand that got them there, not subsequent hands.

One table elimination: The player’s starting stack immediately prior to fantasyland attainment determines player elimination. Players with equal chips at the hand’s start will be eliminated starting with the player at the button’s left and proceeding clockwise. 

Multi-table eliminations without hand for hand: Hand completion time determines order of elimination

Hand for hand eliminations: This method is used with significant prize increase and dwindling players. Multi-table play is synchronized. No hands will be dealt until players at all tables have finished their hands. Stack sizes at the hand’s start determine finishing order. Players with equal starting stacks are eliminated first if they lose their points first. Fantasyland hands are not counted as separate hands for eliminations, but as integral part of the original hand.

Button Moving Rule: The Button Moves Clockwise

When fantasyland is still active, hands are not yet complete. Fantasyland ends when the fantasyland player(s) or all his (their) table opponents are all-in.
