The Tournament Money (T-Money) system allows you to register in tournaments without using your real money balance.

We'll give you T-Money in the following situations:

  • If you win an entry to the same tournament twice. In that case, the value of the second entry is credited to your account in T-Money.
  • If you win a satellite after the target tournament's registration period has already closed. Here, you'll receive the value of the target tournament's buy-in in T-Money.

Some special tournaments, such as freerolls, can also award T-Money as part of their prize pool.

How do I use T-Money?

You can use T-Money to register in any tournament with a cash buy-in. It will be used by default at registration if the tournament is eligible, before any other available balance.

If you want to register for a tournament but don't have enough T-Money, the remaining buy-in will be taken from your real money balance. T-Money cannot be withdrawn or exchanged for any other currency.

You can check your T-Money balance by visiting the My Rewards section of the lobby. If you're on the website version of our Help Center and want to check your balance
