These multi table tournaments are scheduled and players will be able to view them on the official website of ClubWPT. Players will be given the chance to opt-in these tournaments up to the moment these tournaments start but once they start, players will not be able to join in the fun. On the other hand, players who want to withdraw from any tournament that they have registered to will be able to do that until 15 minutes from its start according to the schedule.
Players who are late for the tournament will still be a part of it but if they do not show up after 12 minutes from the start of the tournament, they will be eliminated. During these twelve minutes, they will be blinded off until they return.
During the tournaments, players will be moved from their tables to other tables in order to maintain an equal number of players at all of the tables in the tournament. Players who are going to be relocated will be notified before they are moved. When they are relocated, if they find themselves sitting between the button and the big blind, they will not be able to participate until the button passes them. There are also Sit N Go Tournaments and No Limit tournaments where there is no limit to the amount of raises that players can perform.
All of the players at the tables will start with the exact same amount of poker chips and they will keep playing until they are eliminated one by one until one player acquires all of the chips.
