Full Tilt Poker offers a variety of tournaments with a range of buy-ins to suit all players. Get in on the action of the world's best online poker tournaments.

How to Find a Tournament

If you're just getting started in online poker, we recommend using Basic View of the Full Tilt Poker lobby to find a tournament. Basic View is an interactive guide designed to help you find the game you want to play – follow the step-by-step instructions to help make your selection. Learn more about using Basic View.

For players looking to take control of their game selection and management, we recommend using Standard View, the full-feature view of the main lobby. Start your search by making a selection in each column of the browse area at the top of the lobby:

Tournament Types

With a wide variety of tournament types available, Full Tilt Poker offers the best tournament action in the world. The tournament type icons and color-coding allow you to easily identify each tournament or Sit & Go you see in the game list:

Each tournament type is explained below:

Deep Stack and Super Stack Tournaments – Deep Stack Tournaments feature starting stacks of at least 3,000 chips, while Super Stack Tournaments have starting stacks of 5,000 or more chips.

Turbo and Super Turbo Tournaments – Turbo Tournaments feature quicker blind levels than standard tournaments, while Super Turbo Tournaments offer the unique challenge of starting a tournament with a short stack.

Rush Poker Tournaments – Experience the world's fastest poker game in a tournament format and rush your way to the final table. Learn more about Rush Poker Tournaments.

Escalator Tournaments – Escalator Tournaments are different to tournaments with Normal, Turbo or Super Turbo structures, as the duration of the blind levels gradually increase as the game progresses. Learn more about Escalator Tournaments.

Rebuy Tournaments – Rebuy/Add-On Tournaments feature a period at the start of the tournament where players can buy more chips if their stack is below a certain size, plus a period to rebuy for a final time (known as an add-on). Learn more about Rebuy Tournaments.

Double and Triple Chance Tournaments* – In a Double Chance Tournament you'll be given one token along with your chips. The token can be exchanged for an additional chip stack equal to the number of starting chips. If you lose your entire stack, or reach the end of the final level during which you are allowed to use your token, your token will automatically be exchanged for chips. Triple Chance Tournaments operate in the same manner, but you are given two tokens at the start of the tournament. Learn more about Double and Triple Chance Tournaments.

Knockout Bounty Tournaments – Featuring a bounty on each player, knock a player out of the tournament to collect their bounty. Learn more about Knockout Bounty Tournaments.

On Demand Tournaments – On Demand Tournaments are Sit & Go tournaments that offer Late Registration. Learn more about On Demand Tournaments.

Flipout Tournaments – These tournaments begin with a Shootout round, which features a Flip Tournament format. In the second round, the surviving players are reseated and the tournament resumes with a standard betting structure. Learn more about Flipout Tournaments.

Shootout Tournaments – Unlike standard tournaments where players are moved to keep the tables balanced, each table in a Shootout Tournament plays down to a single winner who then moves on to face the winners of the other tables. Learn more about Shootout Tournaments.

Steps Tournaments – A special tiered Sit & Go format that allows you to turn a small investment into a big score, work your way up the Steps Tournament levels starting for as little as $3.30. Learn more about Steps Tournaments.

Re-Entry Tournaments – As long as late registration is available and you haven't already reached your re-entry limit, you'll be able to take another seat in our Re-Entry Tournaments if you lose all of your chips. You may get knocked out, but that doesn't mean you can't take another shot at grabbing a share of the prize pool! Learn more about Re-Entry Tournaments.

Multi-Entry Tournaments – Multi-Entry Tournaments are unique and exclusive to Full Tilt Poker. They allow you to register for the same tournament numerous times, meaning you can "multi-table" a single tournament! Learn more about Multi-Entry Tournaments.

New to the Game Tournaments - New to the Game tables provide players with an easier way to experience different game types and enhance their poker skills.

Flip Tournaments – Flip Tournaments are fast and exciting Scheduled or Sit & Go Tournaments where players move all-in automatically on every hand. Players begin with 10 chips and most tournaments conclude within a few hands. Learn more about Flip Tournaments.

Multi-Day Tournaments – Multi-Day Tournaments are tournaments that are played out over more than one day. Some Multi-Day Tournaments feature multiple Day 1s, enabling players to choose the starting time that suits them. Each Day 1 ends after a specified number of levels, with every player remaining in the tournament moving on to Day 2. Learn more about Multi-Day Tournaments.

There can also be a combination of different tournament types, such as a Turbo Knockout Deep Stack Tournament.

The Tournament Types Icon Legend can be displayed as a Lobby Widget in Standard View and Mini View of the main lobby. Learn more about Lobby Widgets.

Tournament Features

Tournament Tickets – Tournament Tickets give you another option for buying in to your favorite tournaments. They can be won by playing in special satellite tournaments, or purchased through the Full Tilt Poker Store. Learn more about Tournament Tickets.

Late Registration – Even if you don't quite make it for the start of a tournament, you can still buy in with our Late Registration feature. Information on how many levels of Late Registration are available can be found in the tournament lobby, directly under the tournament start time. Learn more about Late Registration.

Synchronized Breaks – If you like to play more than one tournament at the same time, Synchronized Tournament Breaks allow you to "take five" out of every hour of tournament play without missing a hand. All of our scheduled tournaments (and many multi-table Sit & Go tournaments) go on break at 55 minutes past every hour. Learn more about Synchronized Breaks.

Automatic Tournament Deals – Once the final table of a tournament is reached, Automatic Tournament Deals allow players the option of making a deal for all or part of the remaining prize pool. Learn more about Automatic Tournament Deals.

Sit & Go Tournaments

Sit & Go tournaments begin once the required number of players has registered, rather than at a scheduled start time. We offer single-table and multi-table Sit & Go tournaments in a variety of types, including most of the tournament types described above.

In addition to those varieties, we also offer three tournament types that are only available as Sit & Go tournaments:

Steps Tournaments – A special tiered Sit & Go format that allows you to turn a small investment into a big score, work your way up the Steps Tournament levels starting for as little as $3.30. Learn more about Steps Tournaments.

Matrix Tournaments – Enter a Matrix Sit & Go Tournament for the ultimate Sit & Go challenge. You'll play four single-table Sit & Go tournaments at the same time, against the same players on each table. Earn points for each player you knock out and each player you outlast on all four tables to earn your cut of the special Matrix prize pool. Learn more about Matrix Tournaments.

On Demand Tournaments – On Demand Tournaments are Sit & Go tournaments that offer Late Registration. Learn more about On Demand Tournaments.

Jackpot Sit & Go Tournaments – Play Jackpot Sit & Go Tournaments to win your share of a prize pool of up to 2,000 times the buy-in. Choose your preferred stake level and you'll be matched with two opponents. The prize pool multiplier of between 2x and 2000x the buy-in will be randomly determined, then the tournament will play out with a Super Turbo structure.
