DeepStacks Nightly Tournament Structure

deepstacks secondary games

At each DeepStacks event, players may earn points by participating in either Ring Games and/or SNG Tournaments.

Ring Games

  • Only Texas Hold’em and Omaha High may be played for points.
  • For 2.5 points per 5,000 chips, players can participate in “ring style” games. 
  • In any combination of initial buy-in / re-buys, a player can spend a maximum of 10.0 points per DeepStacks event in increments of 2.5 points.  This allows the player the flexibility to have an initial chip stack of either 5K, 10K, 15K, or 20K.
  • Players may not “loan” or “borrow” re-buys to other players.
  • Players may “cash out” their chips for points anytime they wish.
  • If a player has “cashed out” their stack for points and chooses to re-enter the ring game, they will receive the amount of chips that were cashed out.
