The blinds according to the tournament info are higher than what is actually being applied...

for instance, it should be 30/60, but they are currently 15/30 at level 2.

Hi,

That is a FL Tournament, there is nothing wrong with the setup of blinds.

A player will only ever have the choice of set betting amounts and a fixed number of possible raises. If we use a 20/40 game as an example:

The blinds will be $10/$20

Players pre-flop may only bet (call their option) $20 or raise exactly $20 more than the previous bet. There may only be a maximum of 3 raises (4 total bets) after which players can only call or fold but not raise further.


Post flop the betting structure is fixed at $20 on the flop and on future streets (turn and river) $40, the same raising rules apply, that being a maximum of 3 raises (4 total bets).

I hope this helps.

Right fixed limit. Apparently I don't play fixed limit very often...

Thanks.
