There are scheduled multi-table tournaments (for up to 2000 players!). Some require players to make a buy-in, while others, the freerolls, are absolutely free to join. The most common tournament poker game is No Limit Texas Hold'em, but you'll also find Limit Texas Hold'em as well as Omaha, Seven Card Stud and 5-Card Draw.
How do I play a multi-table tournament?
You can register for the multi-table tournament either in the tournament lobby in the poker client (the web based or the downloadable one) or at the tournament information page at PokerLoco.
The tournament starts at the scheduled time, for example 3 pm ET. All tournament players must be logged into the tournament game before the tournament starts to keep their place in the starting line. Ensure that you are on the tournament page at least 2 minutes before the start. When the tournament starts you shall be automatically seated at a table.
How is it decided who is moved to a new table?
The player who will be moved to a new table is the player not currently at the Dealer, Small Blind or Big Blind positions that has been moved the fewest number of times so far. If there is more than one candidate, the player sitting the furthest clockwise distance away from the Big Blind gets moved.
In multi-table tournaments, how can I find which table I’m sat at?
If you are in the game lobby for a multi-table at start time you will be taken automatically to the table. If this does not occur, or if you are not in the lobby at start time please highlight the tourney name in the lobby then click on the "go to tournament" tab followed by the "tourney info" tab. Here you will see a list of all players in the tournament. Press "control" "f" over the player list in the bottom right corner and enter your nickname. You will then be shown the table you are at. Simply go to the game lobby and click on the relevant table to join the game.
What do I do if I registered for a tournament in the past but forgot to play?
Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done. If you register for a tournament the buy-in goes towards the pot and hence the winning places.
What should I do if I registered for a tournament in the past but the tournament had already started when logged on?
Until you log on, your hands shall be check/folded, while you pay any blind charges that pass. As soon as you log on, you shall be sent to the table where your player is sat. If you are not placed automatically, please highlight the tourney name in the lobby then click on the "go to tournament" tab followed by the "tourney info" tab. Here you will see a list of all players in the tournament. Press "control" "f" over the player list in the bottom right corner and enter your nick name. You will then be shown the table you are at. Simply go to the game lobby and click on the relevant table to join the game.
What are ”Only Client Signups”?
It means the time for web-registration is over and you can only sign up for the tournament through the game client i.e. the lobby.
What is web registration and how does it work?
Prior to a tournament opening for registration, for some tournaments it is possible to register on the website in advance. Please go to the tournament section, select the tournament in the schedule and press the register button.
I can sign up for some tournaments but not others. Why is that?
To be eligible for a tournament you have to fulfil some criteria. E.g. to play a real money tournament (including the freerolls) you need to register your account details and have sufficient funds in your account. Some tournaments may also be restricted in which case there are more criteria (like poker points or qualification). The registration times for tournaments differ for each one.
