Texas Holdem poker is a very exciting game, played all over the world. If you love this game, you can both enjoy and win money by playing online. In almost all online poker rooms you can play Texas Holdem and you can take part in many tournaments. Multi-table, Single-table and Freerolls are some of the most popular kinds of poker events. But a lot of people prefer to participate in Rebuy tournaments. And to be a strong participant in such event, you should know its basic rules and strategy.
The Rebuy Texas Holdem tournaments are such events, in which the participants can buy some extra chips during the pre-defined period of the competition. Rebuys are allowed only to players, who are at or below their original chip amount. In these tournaments the first rebuy is available for all players who are careless to their chip amount, so if you play in such event, it will be written on the information box.
Rebuys can be used only in special rebuy rounds. It depends on the poker room’s structure and how many rounds the tournament will contain. In most of the Rebuy events there is an option, called add-on. All players can make an add-on purchase option at the end of the last rebuy level, regardless of the amount of their chips. You can rebuy only by clicking on the Rebuy button. In case you lose all you chips, you will have a few seconds to decide whether to rebuy or not. If you decide that you won’t rebuy, you will be eliminated immediately.
It depends on the tournament structure how many rebuys you can do. The number of rebuys can vary from zero to unlimited number. When you enter the Rebuy Texas Holdem tournament and the game starts, you will have the opportunity to see the cost of add-on and the number of chips for it, and the cost of rebuy and the number of chips per rebuy. In case a player is kicked off the tournament at a rank with a prize, no matter the prize is not announced, the rebuy and add-on round will be closed. Then the prize pool will be announced and the eliminated player will take his money.
As many rebuys and add-ons there are in the event, as faster the total amount of chips in the tournament will enlarge. The number of the chips, given to all players as rebuys plus the sum of the chips, given to all players during the add-on request plus the amount of all players’ starting chips will make the total tournament chip rebuy. The final calculation of the chips will be made just when the add-on period is over. In case the event falls through the add-on round, the amount of the chips will be used for balancing the final prize pool.
Many poker players prefer participating in Rebuy Texas Holdem tournaments, because they have the chance to play longer and in this way win more chips. On the Internet there are many poker rooms, which offer such kind of tournaments, so it will be very easy for you to participate in a Rebuy Texas Holdem tournament.
