There are many different types of tournaments in the Replay Poker Lobby, and here are a few handy ways to tell how each one works to help pick the best ones to suit you.
78 Players have each paid 2,500 Entry, which is 2,250 entry and 250 fee, so the prize is 78 x 2250 = 175.500. The Player Avatar means one or more of your Replay Poker friends is playing in the tournament.
Standard Prize Pool
This tournament is not guaranteed and so far has just one entrant, so the prize pool reflects only the entries collected so far. The prize pool will increase as more players register and all the entries will be paid out as prizes accordingly.
(Ticket icon) 9
This tournament has an entry of 2,000 (1,800+200 fee), and the prize pool is going to be paid out in (9) tickets. Opening the Lobby will show the value of the tickets and the breakdown of the prize pool.
A Freeroll means there is no chip or ticket required to enter. The prize pool is going to be paid out in (9) tickets.
Added Prize Pool
This tournament allows 15K tickets as entry. If you open the tournament Lobby you will see that chips may also be used for entry. The present prize pool is shown as 0+1M, which means that there are no entries paid so far. However, the +1M shows there will be 1 million chips added to the prize pool regardless of the amount collected from entries.
The entry is 500 (450+50) and the 500+'R' means that there are rebuys available in the event. This tournament has an added Prize of 10K, which indicates whatever amount of entries collected from the players will have an additional 10K added to the prize pool by Replay Poker.
15K/(Ticket icon) and GTD
The entry is possible with a 15K ticket, which can be won in a satellite tournament. Chips can sometimes be used as entry. Clicking on the Register button will open a window to view your options for entering.
GTD for this tournament means that minimum prize pool will be 300K chips. The amount of the GTD prize pool will vary by tournament. In addition, GTD prize pools will be larger than the guaranteed amount if the total of all the entries exceeds the advertised amount.
This is another instance of the Cat's Eye tournament from above and unlike the first one, this one has yet to start. We can see the entry is 2,500 (2,250 +250) and the prize pool is guaranteed to be 100K. It looks like a popular event, and there is a good chance that the prize pool will be even higher!
