MTT is short for “Multi-Table Tournament.” These are like single table tournaments but with a lot more people playing on far more tables. As your stack increases (or dwindles), you will be moved table as people are knocked out. Like in a single table tournament (STT), the blinds increase, forcing you to make a stand!

Due to the high number of participants, these tournaments take longer to complete – certainly value for money. There’s a break after each hour of play. Many players try to aggressively win chips early on, this leads to a rapid depletion of the field. If you make it through the first half hour then you’re in good shape to be in contention for the payouts.

Look out for regular weekly and monthly MTTs hosted on all the top online poker rooms.
