    Jay,

    It's a popular tournament format, you have a set number of players and a set buyin. You start the tournament but instead of the stakes staying the same (like a cash game) the blinds increase regularly until someone has all of the chips and wins the tournament.

    Example:
    9 players buy in for 10M each and get 3000 tournament chips. Blinds start at 50/100 and increase every 10 minutes. They play down to a winner and then the top 3 players split the prize pool with the winner getting the most and 3rd getting the least. If you get knocked out of the tournament you can immediately join another one as long as there are enough people ready.

    Online poker sites usually have a sit and go starting every couple of minutes at various stakes.

    This would be great! The site I played at before CW (which used to cheat its players, and most of us left, and I think they're out of business now) had those tournaments. They were a lot of fun!

    Jay, tickle is correct as far as nine players. But you can also due a five player one that follows the same blind system. With most 5-player game the winner takes all. It's a much faster and in my opinion funnier way to play.   everybody doesn't have hours to grind on a regular table. Not that there is anything wrong with it. It also stops the player's that just go allin knowing they can just rebuy. There are no rebuys in sit and go's. If you bust you're out. Then you have the option to go another game or not. Thanks Harley
