What are scheduled tournaments?
Scheduled multi-table tournaments challenge your poker skills and give you the chance to win big prizes for a small outlay. Every multi-table tournament on partypoker.com has a buy-in as well as an entry fee. The buy-in is added to the prize pool, while the entry fee is kept by PartyPoker. The prize pool is the product of the buy-in and the number of participants in a tournament.
These tournaments feature many players with several tables starting off simultaneously. As players are eliminated from the tournament, tables are combined, reducing the number until there is only one table left.
