How the tournaments are conducted
All players must place mandatory bets (small blind, big blind, ante if need be). If a player leaves the table, the mandatory bet will be placed automatically (by dealer). Cards of a player, who is not present before dealing of the first card, will be automatically folded.
Breaks during a tournament are usually held every hour and a half or every two hours.
If there are less players at some of the tables, the floorman will re-seat the players in such a manner, so there is the same number of players at each table (i.e. at a table there cannot be 2 more players that at any other table). Always a player from a table with the highest number of participants will be moved, the player will be placing the big blind in the next game. A player who is being moved will assume his new place in such a manner (if possible) so he could pay a big blind as soon as possible.
As soon as the number of players drops into a multiple of nine (9, 18, 27..), the table with the highest serial number will be dismissed and the players from the table will be re-seated to empty seats at other tables based on ticket drawing. Therefore a situation can occur, that a player who were placing the big blind in the last game at a different table, will be placing it again.
While assuming places at the final table, all places are to be drawn together with the dealer’s position.
