A shootout is a unique type of multi-table tournament. Normally, when you play in a multi-table tournament, players are moved from table to table to balance the number of players at each table. Eventually, the last remaining players end up at the ‘final table.’ In a shootout, no such table balancing is done. You remain at your original table until only one player is left standing. If you win that table, you advance to the next round at another table and repeat the process against players who each won their previous table. Note that you’ll have to wait for the next round to start until all other tables in the previous round have completed.
In a TRIPLE SHOOTOUT, for example, you need to win three tables to win the event. Each starting table is played to its conclusion; the final table is formed of the winners of the first two rounds’ matches. For example, a 4k Token Shootout Level 2 allows for four 2-seated tables for a total of 8 players (round 1). Each of those 4 tables would play down to one winner, and the 4 winners would then be brought to a second set of two heads-up tables (round 2), where they would play until there is one winner from each table, who will face off in a final heads-up table (round 3).
A DOUBLE SHOOTOUT is very much like a triple shootout, except you only have to win at TWO tables to win the tourney.
A QUADRUPLE SHOOTOUT is very much like a triple shootout, expect you must advance through FOUR tables to win the tourney.
Note that if a shootout is not filled to capacity when it begins, some of the tables could have more players than others. Late registration is not available in shootout tournaments.
