A sit and go (SNG) tournament is a poker game type between 2 - 360 players, which takes usually around from 20 minutes to 2 hours to finish, depending in format. Players pay a fixed buy-in for their entry and get the same amount of poker chips. In addition, there is always a fixed number of players and a fixed payout structure for a given SNG tournament. Whoever loses his chips is out of the tournament.
