There are two typical ways that the entry fee of a tournament is structured:

  • Freeze outs – It means that each player can only buy in one time. Once a player runs out of the poker chips, the tournament is over. It is also the most common type of tournament.
  • Rebuys – It means that there is a specified period at the beginning of tournament when players can buy more chips when their stack falls below a level or when they bust out. The cost of the rebuy is the same as the entry fee, minus the rake.
  • Reentry Tournaments– This tournament is the same as a rebuy except that the player must be eliminated before buying back. They also don’t get to keep their seat. Instead, in an initial buy-in, the player is reseated at another table.
