What Is A Rebuy Tournament?
Wednesday, 12. May 2010

A rebuy tournament is a tournament that offers participants the opportunity to buy more chips over the course of the tournament as opposed to a standard freezeout tournament in which players running out of chips are eliminated.

Rebuy tournaments will offer a set rebuy period in the beginning of the tournament; after which, rebuys are no longer allowed. The rebuy period is typically the first hour of the tournament. In addition to a rebuy period, rebuy tournaments will usually allow players a fixed number of rebuys. Most online poker rooms will automatically offer players a chance to rebuy in the event that they lose all of their chips before the end of the rebuy period.

While the rebuy could, technically, cost any amount; the rebuy will generally be the same cost as the buy in and will give the player the same number of chips as the starting chip stack of the tournament.

Most rebuy tournaments will also offer players the opportunity to make an add-on at the end of the rebuy period. An add-on is really just an additional rebuy. As with a rebuy, add-ons will generally be the same cost as the buy in and will give the player the same number of chips as the starting chip stack of the tournament.

Tournament rules will vary from tournament to tournament so we at the Online Poker Index suggest that you take a look at the terms and conditions of any tournament prior to registration in order to verify all of the rules and various technicalities.
