Sit N Go Tournaments
Learn How To Play Single Table Tournaments (STT's)
Single-Table Tournaments (STTs – also known as "Sit n Go's") are extremely convenient and perfect for beginners in the online poker world. This is because, unlike cash tables (and some MTTs) you only pay a fixed amount to enter, and the games do not last too long – especially if they're turbos!
STTs offer a fun, easy way to play. Just join a tournament and, once the pre-requisite number of players has registered (usually 6 or 10) the action starts! They're a good investment too, the top three places usually get paid, and in a small field it offers the solid poker player a very decent rate of return!
STTs are also very varied, you can play normal hold'em games, turbo, heads-up, twister or double or nothing!

If you need to leave the poker table then tick the fold/check all box and this will fold/check your hands until you return.
· When you lose all of your poker chips, you are out of the tournament and placed in the order that you were eliminated, i.e. in 10-player tournaments, if you are the 8th player eliminated, you finished in 3rd place and will receive your portion of the prize pool.
