The early bird gets the worm - register for tournaments before they begin and you'll be eligible for Bubble Protection.
If you fall just short of the money, we'll give you your buy-in back. No strings attached!
Bubble Protection is a FREE feature that protects your buy-in when you fall just short of the money! All you need to do is register for a tournament before it starts, and if you bubble you get your buy-in back.
Bubble: The bubble is referred to as the positions just before the money is reached in a tournament. A player who is eliminated just before being able to cash is referred to as having "bubbled".
