Double Shootout

Definition of double shootout

A double shootout is mainly a sit’n’go with its own structure. Variations on the shootout mode are numerous. Mode shootout means that for the first round, only the winners on their respective tables will move on to the next round. Let's take an example to clarify. 100 players enter a sit’n’go. The players are spread over 10 tables of 10 players. At this point, each table will be like a sit’n’go with 10 players in itself. We will have to wait until each of the 10 tables has found its winner before we can continue. Once there are only 10 players left (the 10 winners), we will bring them together on one table to compete against each other.

Paid seat structure in the shootout

Usually, looking back at the example above, all 10 finalist players will receive a paid seat. These types of sit’n’go have a greater variance, but some find this variation more exciting. After winning your starting sit’n’go, you will play for $1000 in prize money if your entry was $10. Usually, if you win a $10 sit’n’go with 10 players, you will get $50. But here, you'll probably be guaranteed $70, even if you finish 10th. You could win $500 if you just won your "second" sit’n’go.
