A multi-table tournament in which players separately play down to a single winner on each table, then the winners advance to the next round so on. For example, a “shootout” event at the World Series of Poker might begin with 1,000 players playing at 100 ten-handed tables, with the 100 winners of each advancing to play at ten more ten-handed tables in the second round. The ten winners of those tables would then play a final ten-handed table to determine a winner.

“Shootout” tournaments are popular among single table sit-n-go players, since the format is essentially to play a sequence of single table sit-n-gos.
