In the money

Definition of "in the money

When you are in tournament or sit'n'go, when the bubble is burst and you reach the paid places, we will say that you are "in the money" that is to say "in the money". Before the paid seats of a tournament, you will see that the tournament will slow down and what is called a bubble will form, that is to say a moment where players will be extremely conservative in order to reach the paid seats. Almost always, the paid seats will give you at least a little more than your tournament entry fee.

In the money and the "hand by hand"

Before each paid seat tier, the tournament (especially online) may be in hand-by-hand mode (hand by hand), a time when all tables will have to play at the same pace. Usually in tournaments, the tables roll at their own pace. One table will be able to play 12 hands per hour, another 22 hands per hour, all of which are free to go at their own pace, but prior to paid tournament play, all tables may be warned that when a hand is over, that table will not be able to start a new hand until all tables have finished playing the current hand.
