(n) Competition among players, sometimes with one buy-in, in which case it is sometimes called a freeze-out tournament, and then played down till either a preset number of players remain, at which point all win the chips they have at that time, or (more commonly, particularly online) till one is left, at which point prizes are awarded that are percentages of the total bought in (prize pool), with the most for the first-place winner, next for second, and so on, sometimes with a guaranteed amount for first place, or a guaranteed total for the entire prize pool; and sometimes with multiple buy-ins, in which case it is usually called a rebuy tournament, and often with a similar same prize structure. In such a tournament, first place might be worth 40 or 50% of the prize pool (depending on number of participants), second place 20 or 25%, third 15%, and so on, down to the last qualifying place, which might pay just the cost of the buy-in.

Some large online tournaments have paid 100 places and more. The final event of the 2003 World Series of Poker, with a record 839 entrants, paid 63 places.
