Freezeouts are tournaments where you do not have the option of re-buying. Remember to choose your online freezeout tournament strategy wisely because once you run out of chips, the dream of the big payday is gone.

The weekly freezeout multiplayer tournament is an extreme stack tournament i.e. each player will start with 10,000 chips. There will be plenty of time early on so be patient and build your stack.


Most online poker tournaments run along these lines, especially the major poker tournaments such as the World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker tournament.


About Freezeout Poker Tournaments

When playing at online poker sites, you will find that most multiplayer online poker tournaments are “freezeouts”. Freezeout poker tournaments have a set buy-in for entering and when you lose all your chips, you are out of the poker tournament. This is not the same when playing in a re-buy multiplayer tournament, where if a player loses all their chips, they will have the option to “re-buy” more chips usually for the same amount as the initial buy-in.
