  • Sit & Go - With no set start time beginning when all seats are taken, these are ideal for those players who like fast action. You can find these at Black Chip under the Sit & Go tab.

As well as the re-buy there is normally an add on period too that gives your chip stack an even bigger boost
  • Final Table Experience - These awesome tourneys give you the feeling that you've made the grade and are at the final table of a big event. With chip stacks starting at 1,000,000, 9 seats available and buy ins as low as 99 cents they are a whole lot of fun and you can find them in the sit and go section.
  • Bounty Tournaments - Bounty tournaments can take many formats however the main feature of the tourney is that there is a bounty on one or maybe more players heads. Should you be the player that knocks the bounty out (often a pro player) then you get rewarded with a special cash prize.
  • Sit & Go Satellites - These are just like Sit and Go tourneys except that they offer seats to a much larger event. Black Chip offer a number of sit and go satellites to the weekly big events and they are always worth checking out to get a cheap seat to the big tourneys.
  • Time Based Tournaments - Time based tourneys are scheduled tourneys with both a start time and a finish time. The winner is the player with the most chips at the end of a given time period. These are ideal for players with a limited amount of time and also for those who love a little all in action, as it's all about the size of your stack in those closing minutes.
  • Hand Based Tournaments - A little bit like time based tourneys, but using the amount of hands that are dealt rather than a clock to determine when the tourney ends. The player with the most chips at the end of the designated amount of hands, wins the tournament.
