Tournament Final Table Features
Final tables at GGPoker are like nowhere else.


Reaching the final table in any tournament is a great achievement. We’ve added some unique and fresh features into the mix to make your final table experience even more exciting and memorable.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect once you’ve made it through all the competition to the hallowed final table.

Switch Seats
This unique and exciting feature allows you to change seats before the final table begins. Here’s how it works:
  • You select any seat and automatically switch seats with that player.
  • Each player is given 30 seconds to select a seat.
  • You can choose a seat that has already been selected by a previous player if you choose later than them.
  • Seat selection order will start with the smallest stack and finish with the largest chip stack.
  • Therefore the chip leader is last to switch seats.
  • If two chip counts are identical, the player who registered for the event first will choose last.
  • Been sitting to the left of your poker nemesis all tournament long? Make it to the final table and you’ll have the opportunity to get away – just hope that he doesn’t have a bigger stack and likes having you next to act!

Game Clock
The final table Game Clock gives every player a set amount of time for use throughout their play at the final table. Here’s how it works:
  • All players get the same amount of time on their Game Clock to begin (e.g.: 15 minutes)
  • The clock will count down whenever the action is on you.
  • If the Game Clock reaches 0 and expires, you will then get 5 seconds per turn to make a decision.
  • The amount of time each player in a tournament receives is determined by a set formula, which is calculated as follows: {(Chip Total of all players) / (Small Blind + Big Blind + Total Ante)} / Number of Players
  • The maximum and minimum Game Clock values are 15 minutes and 1 minute respectively.

Deal Making
Want to change how the remaining prize pool is distributed? You’ll have the option to make a deal with the other remaining players at the final table. Here’s how it works:
  • In the top-right corner of the final table, there is a Deal button. Selecting it will bring up the Deal Agreement pop-up.
  • The Deal Making option becomes available after seat selection is completed.
  • If you have indicated that you would like to make a deal, but change your mind, select the button again and choose ‘Cancel Deal Reservation’.
  • All players must accept the deal for it to be finalized, after which the prize pool will be credited.
  • Normal play then resumes to determine the final ranking for Tournament Leaderboard Points.
  • The Deal Making (or ICM Deal) option must be agreed to by all players.
  • Once players are all agreed, the game will momentarily stop to show the prize amount to be distributed to each player, based on ICM.
  • The deal is completed only when all players agree to the new prize distribution.
What is ICM? Here’s the technical part
Independent Chip Model (or ‘ICM’ for short) distributes the remaining prize pool based on the current chip count of players, ignoring skill, blinds or other external factors:
  • When using ICM to calculate the prize payout, there is a specific amount of chips based on N players, and when players randomly go all-in (each all-in winning rate is 50:50), the odds of each player finishing from 1st to Nth place is determined to calculate EV.
  • ICM EV$ = ProbabilityFinish1st * FirstPrize$ + ProbabilityFinish2nd * SecondPrize$ + … + ProbabilityFinishNth * NthPrize$
When do the final table features come into play?
You must be in the ‘In The Money’ (ITM) stage and reach the final table. Final table features do not apply to freerolls, satellites and T$ Builder tournaments.
