There are two main types of online poker game; Texas hold’em poker, Omaha, freeroll tournaments etc. Players are free to join and leave a game if they wish to at any point of tie without losing out on the play money. Players can choose how much of their bankroll to bring to the table, and are free to top-up or buy-in again if they lose their chips (and have more in reserve). Tournaments start at a specific time, or when a certain amount of players have registered, and usually require a one-off buy-in to play. Players who lose all their chips in a tournament are knocked out, until there is just one winner remaining. The combined prize pool of all the players’ buy-ins is shared between the players who last the longest, with the winner receiving the greatest share.
