All competitions are based on the Olympic system. All tournaments allow rebuys (apart from the competition with 50C guaranteed prize fund).
What is a rebuy? All players eliminated in round 1, as well as those who missed the deadline to register before the start of the tournament, can enter or rejoin the competition upon paying the entry fee increased by 40%.
Also during the course of the competition, any eliminated player can rejoin by making a rebuy, i.e. by paying an amount 40% more than the previous round entry fee. For instance, if the buy-in is 1C, round 2 rebuy will be 1.4C, round 3 rebuy will be 1.96C etc.
Rebuys close when there are 8 players left in the competition. They play for 8 places in single-elimination format.
The tournament's prize fund is distributed as follows:
1st place - 35%, 2nd place - 25%, 3rd-4th places - 10%, 5th-8th places - 5%.
Apart from prize money, the players can win tickets to bigger tournaments. Details can be found in the Terms of each tournament.
