Sit & Go or Sit and Go or Sit'n Go or sNg
Definition of sit & go
A sit & go is similar to a tournament. Unlike a tournament, it will not start at a fixed time, but when there is a quorum. A sit & go has a predefined number of players. There are sit & gos to 2 players, 6, 9, 12, 18, 180, 360, etc. The sit & gos formats are added year after year. What makes a tournament different from a sit & go is that it will start when the number of entries has been filled. The structure will be determined in advance and generally, the sit & gos will have a structure that will favour the first places. In other words, the money in the total prize pool will be concentrated in the first 3 places.
