What is Shootout in Poker?

« View All Poker Terms

A shootout in poker is a fun tournament variant where every table starts with 9 players, not stopping until only 1 player remains. Then the winners combine into tables, and only the winner from each table advances. 


One of the most popular Shootout tournaments takes place in Las Vegas every summer, with the WSOP $1,500 NLH Shootout.
