        Final Table Prize Structure:

  • 1st Place Prize - $100,000
  1. ThrillAgains:

    1. A “ThrillAgain” is defined as the moment a participant chooses to discard one (1) of their current cards and replace it with another. It can be used to replace one (1) of the first two (2) cards, but once action has been taken on the hand, the Thrillagain can only replace the most recent “hit” card. The player can then continue to have action on the hand once the card has been replaced. The replacement card will be the next card in the “shoe”.
    2. ThrillAgains may only be used once.
    3. If a player does not use their Thrillagain chip, the chip is forfeited at the end of each round or when the player is eliminated.
    4. ThrillAgains can be purchased once per round.
  2. Standard Betting Rules:
    1. Non-negotiable tournament chips will be used in each round. Tournament chips may not be used for any other purpose and must be returned at the end of each session.
    2. Each player starts with $10,000 in tournament chips.
    3. Play will consist of 18 hands during preliminary rounds and 24 during semi and final rounds.
    4. Minimum bet amount is $100. There is no max bet.
    5. The top chip amounts at each semi-final table will advance to the final round.  The method of determining how many from each table go to the final round will be determined by the number of semi-final tables.
    6. All Yaamava’ House Rules for Blackjack will apply. With the following exceptions:
      1. Natural blackjacks will be paid at two (2) to one (1).
      2. Players will not be allowed to take insurance on their hand.
      3. Players will not be allowed to surrender their hand.
  3. Tournament Procedures:
    1. When the tournament is about to begin, the tournament format, rules and betting structure will be conveyed to the players by a tournament official.
    2. In the 1st round of play, if a player has not shown up at their assigned time when it is time to start play, and repeated attempts to locate the player have been unsuccessful, a player who is scheduled for a later round that wishes to play in the earlier round may be allowed to play in the missing player’s spot. An attempt will be made to find a seat for the missing player in a later 1st round, although once a player has missed their scheduled time, play in a later round is not guaranteed.
    3. Players may not change tables or seats without a tournament official’s approval.
    4. It may become necessary to reassign tables or seats to accommodate players with special needs.
    5. In order to keep betting and play fair and even for all players, a rotating Dealer button will be used. The Dealer button will start in the 1st seat to the Dealer’s right and will rotate clockwise around the table requiring a different player to place their bet first in each hand. This negates any sort of seating advantage and keeps the players on an even playing field.
    6. If a player is not in their assigned seat at the start of the round, no cards will be dealt to their spot. The required amount of starting chips will be placed on the missing player’s spot, and a minimum bet in tournament chips will be deducted from their chip stack for each hand missed for the first five (5) hands.
    7. If the player does not begin play prior to the start of the sixth (6) hand, the player will then be disqualified by default and their chips removed from play.
    8. If a player has not started play before the end time of the tournament they will forfeit their spot in the tournament and ThrillAgain purchase, if bought.  
    9. For the final round, if they are not at their table at the start of the round they will be disqualified.
    10. Players will place bets, receive cards and act on their hand in order, with the player sitting to the left of the Dealer button betting first, receiving cards first and acting on their hand first.
    11. The player with the Dealer button will always act last. After the last player has acted on their hand, the Dealer will receive their cards and expose their hand.
    12. Every player must make a minimum bet on every deal or they may bet the maximum bet if so inclined.
    13. When it is a player’s turn to bet, and they have released chips in the betting circle, their bet amount cannot be changed.
    14. Bets made out of turn will not be binding. If a player places a bet in their betting circle before it is their turn to bet, when it is their turn to bet, they may either let the bet stand or remove the bet and bet a different amount.
    15. A player sitting at the table may not sit out a hand and must bet at least the minimum bet every hand.
    16. If a player misses a hand because they have left the table, they will not be dealt a hand. When the hand is finished, the Dealer will remove one minimum bet chip from the player’s stack and place the chip in the Dealer’s rack. After (5) hands if the player has not returned, they will be disqualified by default, and their chips will be picked up.
    17. Misdealt hands that cannot be backed up will void all hands. All bets remain in place and a new deal is completed.
    18. Once the Dealer has exposed their hand, the Dealer will pay winning hands and collect from losing hands in accordance with standard Blackjack procedures.
    19. At the end of the semi-finals and final round, all of the players’ chips will be counted and the player(s) with the most chips will be declared the table winner(s).
    20. If more than one player is to advance, the players who have the most chips will be the ones to advance.
    21. Ties - If two or more players are tied, each remaining participant will receive $10,000 in tournament chips and a four (4) hand playoff will be used to determine the advancing player or winner. If still tied after four (4) hands, there will be a sudden death playoff, which will continue until a winner is decided. Players will draw for seat position. The button will start to the right of the dealer.
    22. If all of the players lose all of their chips on the same hand, the player(s) who started the hand with the most chips will be considered the table winner(s).
    23. If the players started with the same amount of chips, it will be ranked as a tie and prizes will be divided equally between them.
    24. Players may not be coached while at the table, whether the player is in a hand or in-between hands.
    25. Players will be required to use English only while at the table.
