# What is a Pokerstars Spin & Go tournament and how does it work?

• Written by Simon Bettarini
•

Spin & Go’s are fast-paced, 3-Max Hyper-Turbo Sit & Go tournaments, featuring 500 chip starting stacks. Buy-ins range from \$1 to \$30, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 1,000 times your buy-in, up to \$30,000!

## What is a Spin and Go tournament?

In essence, Spin & Go tournaments are Sit & Go's that begin when there are 3 poker players ready to play. Spin & Go tournaments have the following characteristics:

•     There are 3 players with 500 chips each.
•     3 minute levels, just like hyper turbo Spin and Go's.
•     No antes.
•     Rake varies from 7% in \$1 games to 4% in higher stakes.
•     The typical payout for the winner is only 2 buy-ins. The 3rd buy-in goes towards the lottery-type bonus prize pools. Before the tourney begins, the buy-in multiplier is determined and players immediately know if they are playing for an enhanced prize pool.

Bought in for \$1? You could be playing for a \$1,200 prize pool. Bought in for \$30? You prize pool could be \$36,000!

• \$1 = up to \$1,200 prize pool
• \$3 = up to \$3,600 prize pool
• \$7 = up to \$8,400 prize pool
• \$15 = up to \$1,8000 prize pool
• \$30 = up to \$36,000 prize pool
