PokerStars has launched a new Sit & Go format called Fifty50.
In these new tournaments the game ends when half of the entrants have been eliminated, with the remaining players sharing the total prize pool.
The Fifty50 differs from traditional Double or Nothing Sit & Gos in that half of the prize pool gets split between the winning players equally, with the other half being awarded prizes based on the chip count percentages.
For example, in a 10-player $9.30 + $0.70 Fifty50 tournament, the five players left at the end would receive $9.30 each plus $0.30 for every 100 chips in a player’s stack.
Fifty50 events are currently running at the $10 level but will soon be available at many different stakes.
You can find more details of how Fifty50 events are calculated on the PokerStars website
