Rebuys give players the opportunity to increase their chips during a tournament, if some of their chips were lost at the beginning of a tournament. Players can typically use the rebuy feature in the first part of a tournament for a selected period of time (“Available time for rebuy”). Rebuys are available to players whose chip count is lower or equal to the amount specified in the tournament info “Maximum chips for rebuy”.

Add-ons are available during the latter stages of a tournament and can be offered to all players wanting to raise their chip count. Selected tournaments will have a number of add-on periods while others will only have one or none at all.

You'll see a + sign

in the under the tournament name in the tournaments selection page, if rebuys and add-ons are available.

Each tournament's rebuy and add-on

information can be viewed in the tournament lobby.
