What is Re-Entry in Poker?

1 minute

Last Updated: January 31, 2024


A re-entry in poker is a type of tournament structure in which players can pay the buy-in and register again after they have been eliminated. A re-entry differs from a re-buy. The player who re-enters gets a new seat, they don’t remain in the same seat as they would in a re-buy tournament.

Re-Entry Poker Example:

Let’s say you’re playing a poker tournament with multiple Day 1 flights. For instance, if you get eliminated on one day of the tournament, you can re-enter for the Day 1 flight the next day. The tournament will likely limit how many times you can re-enter.
