- n. A form of poker tournament where players start with the same number of chips. Several short games are played with chip totals being converted to points at the end of each game. At the beginning of each new game, chips are redistributed equally among the players. At the end of the tournament, the player with the most points wins. Variation: Top players play a final table for prize ranking with points converted back to chips and gambled according to standard poker rules.
