SECTION TWO – TOURNAMENT RULES
2.1 Chips Cafrino
Chips are for entertainment purposes only and are not redeemable or transferable for funds or prizes whatsoever and cannot be used for any purpose except as provided in this section. Chips are not redeemable for any amount of currency or monetary value from Cafrino at any time.
You must register prior to the start time. Each tournament will begin promptly at the scheduled time set forth on the Site or when the tournament reaches registration capacity. If a player is registered for a tournament and seated at the table but not connected to the website before a hand starts, that player will be dealt cards, a blind will be posted for that player automatically, and that player’s hands will be blinded out until the player arrives, at which point that player may have already been eliminated from the game (i.e., out of chips). Each player in the same tournament will receive the same number of starting chips. The number of starting chips may vary from tournament to tournament depending on the number of players in Cafrino’s sole discretion. The game for all of these tournaments is No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker.
Your account is not transferable. Under no circumstances, shall you allow or permit any other person or third party, including without limitation any person under the legal age to participate in tournament sweepstakes, and in no event any person under the age of eighteen (18) years, to use or re-use your account or your Identifiers in such a way that may breach the standards or laws in any Jurisdiction where you are located and/or are a resident, or where such other person is located and/or is a resident. Under no circumstances, shall any player have more than one account on Cafrino. Cafrino accounts are limited to one account per household. Any players found to have more than one account playing, or have played, in the same location may have any winnings revoked and their account closed. Cafrino may require, at any time, proof of identity in the form of a government issued identification. Any person found to have violated this section will not be entitled to collect any prizes or winnings and may be reported to the relevant authorities. Any player that refuses to provide valid identification, and/or additional identification verification requested by Cafrino, may have any winnings revoked and will be responsible for returning any past winnings upon request from Cafrino. Cafrino reserves the right to refuse or cancel your registration and/or account for any reason whatsoever at any time with or without notice to you. Any player with any previously closed or banned account is ineligible to play or receive any prize offered on the Site.
2.3. Rules for No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker
In Texas Hold’em, there are two face-down cards for each player and five face-up community cards. The player who makes the best five-card poker hand with any combination of their two face-down cards and the five community cards wins the round. In a Texas Hold’em game, a disc or other marker is used to indicate which person is the “dealer” for the round. Before the cards are dealt, the person to the left of the dealer posts a bet called the small blind, a forced bet that is of a predetermined amount. The person to the left of the small blind posts the big blind, another forced bet which is usually double the small blind. The first two cards are dealt to each player face down (these are called the hole cards), and the person to the left of the big blind starts the first round of betting. (Notice that the big blind and small blind do not get to look at their cards before betting, thus the term “blind”). In the first round of betting, each player has three options: call, raise or fold. To call, the player must place a bet that is equal to the last bet placed. (For the first player in the round, this would be equal to the minimum bet.) A player may choose to raise their call bet by an additional amount, which the other players will then have to call. If one’s hole cards are not favorable, the player may simply choose to fold and sit out the round.
After all the players have finished the first round of betting, the first three community cards are dealt face-up on the board. This is called the flop. The second and all subsequent betting rounds start with the first player to the dealer’s left, and players now has the option to check. By checking, the player indicates interest in the pot without placing a bet. Any player may choose to place a bet, which the other players must then call. Players can still raise, if a bet has been made, or fold, if their hand is not favorable. After the second betting round, the fourth community card is dealt face-up (this is called the turn card). After the third betting round, the fifth and final community card is dealt (this is called the river card). A final round of betting ensues, and afterwards each player turns their hole cards face up. The highest hand that can be made with any combination of a player’s hole cards and the five community cards wins the pot. If two or more players have the same hand, the next highest card in the player’s hand (the kicker) is used to break a tie. If there is no kicker card (the tied players have used both hole cards, or have the exact same hand), then the pot is split between them. The dealer button is then passed clockwise to the next player and another round of play begins.
2.3.1 General Rules Applicable to All Tournaments
All tournaments will begin at the time or at the capacity designated in the tournament details.
Players will be assigned a seat and players may not change their assigned seat.
There is a random selection for the button at the start of the tournament determined by Cafrino at its sole discretion.
The button moves in the conventional clockwise manner so that no player receives the button twice in a row. Occasionally, a player may become the button without having played in the blinds due to other players being eliminated. This may happen to any player during the course of a tournament and therefore creates no long-term advantage.
If a player registers for any tournament and is inactive (does not participate) for a total of ten (10) hands, the player may be removed from the tournament at Cafrino’s discretion and will be awarded the corresponding prize, if any, for the place in which they are removed; no buy in will be refunded.
If two (2) players should be eliminated simultaneously, the player with the largest number of chips at the beginning of the hand will be designated as having finished higher. It is impossible for two (2) people to be eliminated simultaneously when going heads up at the final table.
The tournament finishes when one (1) player has won all the tournament chips and is declared the winner. Except for a qualifying for private MTT where it will be over when the number of people who qualify is reached.
Any play deemed unethical by the Sponsor in its sole discretion (including, without limitation, team play, soft play or chip dumping) will result in the applicable player(s) being disqualified from the tournament.
As players are eliminated over the course of a tournament, tables will be consolidated to keep a full complement of players. Players may be forced to post the blinds when arriving at a new table. Table reassignments are an inherent part of tournaments and apply equally to all players.
Internet issues may cause server interruptions and Sponsor will endeavor to limit such interruptions during a tournament, but Sponsor does not assume responsibility for any such problems. If a player chooses to sit out or is unable to reconnect, the player will still have cards dealt to the player and will automatically post blinds and antes. Players that are unable to reconnect during the allotted time will have their hand automatically folded.
2.4 Prize Amounts
The prizes for all tournaments are stated on the site near the tournament registration. Cafrino in its sole discretion reserves the right to offer different prize amounts for any tournament. If the prize amount will be different it will be stated directly on the site near such tournament. Cafrino in its sole discretion reserves the right change prizing amount, payout structure, date and/or time, and frequency of any tournament.
2.4 Cafrino Chips, Levels, and Level Tickets
Cafrino Chips and Levels are for entertainment purposes only, have no monetary value, are not redeemable or transferable for funds or prizes whatsoever and cannot be used for any purpose except as provided in this section. Chips are not redeemable for any amount of currency or monetary value from Cafrino at any time. Cafrino reserves the right to change level awards at any time, and such awards will be displayed directly on the site near each level game.

All subscription membership plans renew automatically at the end of the applicable billing cycle unless you cancel your subscription plan before the end of the cycle. If, upon the scheduled subscription renewal date, the annual or quarterly plan billing attempt fails, you will be downgraded to a monthly membership and billed accordingly. If your use of our Services is subject to use or sales tax, then the Company may also charge you for any such taxes, besides the subscription fee or other fees published at the Company. The Company reserves the right to change the fees, charges or billing methods in effect, or add new fees and charges, at any time. The Company will announce these changes in advance. You are responsible for reviewing the Company Site to obtain timely notice of such changes. Continued use by you of the Service after notice of the changes constitutes acceptance of such changes. To cancel your subscription membership, visit the Site, log in to your account, go to your account profile by clicking your screen name and then click ‘edit’ under membership status. Your subscription membership fees are payable in advance and are not refundable in whole or in part for any reason. Credit Card Authorizations for Free Trial Memberships are required. You must provide credit card information to register for all trial offers to the Subscription Service. By signing up for a free trial, you agree that the Company may obtain a pre-authorization of up to $49.99. Some financial institutions may perceive these requested amounts as actual pending charges. While not actual charges, the Company is not responsible for any results, such as an overdraft fee, that may occur to your account because of pending charges. If you accept a free trial of a paid Membership, we will bill your account when the free trial expires, unless you cancel your free trial before that time. If you choose to cancel your free trial before the free trial expires, your account will be reverted to a free basic account immediately. You are responsible for any Internet service provider, telephone, wireless and other connection fees that you may incur when using the Site, even when we offer a free trial. Trial memberships may not be transferred at any time to any other user. Trial memberships are limited to one per person and one per credit card number. Paid Subscriptions may be purchased on a monthly (or quarterly or annual when special promotions are running) recurring basis.
6.4 Refund Policy
You agree that all purchases are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion. All Virtual Currencies and Goods will be forfeited if your account is deactivated for any reason at the company’s discretion. If you cancel a recurring membership, your membership will continue until the end of the billing cycle. At that time, your account will revert to a free basic account.
