1. All tournaments will begin at the time designated
in the tournament details, which may be found in the Client lobby 2. Each player will be assigned a seat and he/she
may not change his/her assigned seat. 3. Players may un-register from a tournament
up to the time it starts or until the tournament has reached capacity. 4. There is a deal for the dealer button at the
start of the tournament; high card plays the button for the first
hand. The button moves in the conventional clockwise manner so
that no player receives the button twice in a row. Occasionally,
a player may get the dealer button without having played in the
blinds due to other players being eliminated (this commonly occurs
in online tournaments due to technical software issues). This
may happen to any player during the course of a tournament and
therefore creates no long-term advantage. 5. If a player registers for any tournament and
is not present at the table (in Post and Fold mode) for between
15-75 consecutive hands (depending on the tournament), the player
will be removed from the tournament and no buy-in will be refunded. 6. If two (2) players should be eliminated simultaneously,
the player with the largest number of chips at the beginning of
the hand will be designated as having finished higher. It is impossible
for two (2) people to be eliminated simultaneously when going
heads up at the final table. If two (2) or more players should
be eliminated simultaneously with the same amount of chips at
the beginning of the hand, these players will tie and split the
prize amount awarded to all places affected. 7. When a tournament is down to the last two
(2) players, the button will post the small blind and be first
to act in the initial round. The big blind will then be first
to act in the following rounds. The tournament finishes when one
(1) player has won all the tournament chips and is declared the
winner. 8. Any play deemed unethical by us in its sole
discretion (including, without limitation, team play, soft play
or chip dumping) will result in the applicable player(s) being
disqualified from the tournament. 9. As players are eliminated over the course
of a tournament, tables will be consolidated to keep a full complement
of players. Players may be forced to post the blinds when arriving
at a new table. Table reassignments are a natural part of tournaments
and apply equally to all players. 10. Players and observers are asked to use the
chat function in a friendly and considerate way. Collusion will
not be tolerated and discussion of live hands is strictly prohibited.
Players in violation of this rule will have chat privileges shut
off and may be disqualified from prize winnings. Please see our
Chat Code of Conduct for more information. 11. Internet issues may cause server interruptions
and we will endeavor to limit such interruptions during a tournament,
but we do not assume responsibility for any such problems. In
the event of a player disconnection, player will be put into post
and fold mode and we will allow extra time for the disconnected
player to reconnect in the later rounds of a tournament. If a
player chooses to sit out or is unable to reconnect, he/she will
still have cards dealt to him/her and will automatically post
blinds and antes. Players that are unable to reconnect during
the allotted time will have their hand automatically folded. 12. Parental Control. Parental control protections
(such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) are
commercially available and may assist you in limiting access to
material that is harmful to those under eighteen (18) years of
age, or the legal age to participate in the tournament sweepstakes
in the applicable Jurisdiction, whichever is higher.

DESCRIPTIONS AND SUMMARIES: The following is a list of
tournaments available at Knockoutpoker.net. Knockout reserves
the right to add and delete tournaments at its sole discretion.
SINGLE TABLE TOURNAMENTS: Single-Table tournaments
(a.k.a. Sit N Gos) begin as soon as all players are seated at
a table. These tournaments are always available when the poker
room is open and award points based on the prize matrix. We offer
a variety of Single Table Tournaments all located in the Poker
Lobby under the Play Now and Sit N Go tabs. In Single-Table tournaments,
all players begin with an equal number of chips. The stakes (antes,
blinds) increase over time. Players are knocked out of the tournament
as they lose all of their chips to other players. The winner is
the player who eventually ends up with all of the chips on the
table. The entry fee (a.k.a. Buy-In) for a tournament (i.e. 100
Poker Points per player) is multiplied by the number of players
(i.e. 10) to determine the total prizes awarded (in this case
1,000 poker points). In a ten player tournament, first place receives
50% of the points (i.e. 500) with second and third receiving 30%
and 20% respectively.
MULTI-TABLE TOURNAMENTS: In a Multi-Table tournament,
there can be multiple tables of players with a maximum of 10 players
per table. In a multi-table tournament, players start with a fixed
number of chips and compete for one another's chips as the blinds
and/or antes increase incrementally. Players are knocked out of
the tournament when they lose all of their chips to their opponents.
As players are eliminated, remaining players are re-assigned to
seats on other tables to keep tables full and even with one another.
Eventually, the last few surviving players with chips are assigned
to the final table, where the eventual winner is the individual
who wins all the chips from his or her opponents. The tournaments
on this site award points and/or prizes to the top finishers.
In tournaments awarding points, the total points awarded is equal
to the entry fee (in points) per player multiplied by the number
of players participating. These points are then awarded as indicated
in the tournament detail screen. Our Multi-Table Tournaments begin
at a scheduled time and begin after a 5-10 minute check-in period
(depending on the tournament). To play in our Multi-Table tournaments,
login to the poker application and click on the Tournaments Tab
to display our various Poker Rooms and a list of the available
Tournaments in each room. To register for a tournament simply
click on the red Register button for that tournament. Each tournament
has entry conditions. To register for a tournament, you must meet
that tournament's entry requirements. If you click on a tournament,
the Tournament Details section of the screen will give you more
specific entry information. Entry Requirements can be Point buy-ins,
