One of partypoker missions is to play 19 MTCT's and this has me stumped.
Google only brings up MTT's.

Typo or am I missing something?

So probabily it's a multi table something. So i guess it's either a MTT or a special variant of MTT, though none come to mind that have a word that starts with "C"

Had a search around on 2+2 and nobody there seems to know either.

My guess would be multi table cash tournament.

A cash is always good though no matter how small. Good luck.

Good luck, if you did not got an answer from the forums here i thought that the last resort would have been to ask party poker themselves Smile

Also glad to hear that you are doing so good on cash, keep playing them if you are on a heater on those tables Big Smile

I think I will.

It may sound absolutely crazy (but over 10 years) I am more successful at the 5/10c stakes as a short stack player than at the 2/4c tables. Especially 10 handed rather than 6.

Completely doesn't make sense to me.

Would that imply that you can leave ( or join) at any moment, while, taking the stack you have at that moment with you?
Otherwise, what would be the difference with a regular MTT? And how are the eventual winners paid? I.e. does part of your buyin go towards a prize pool?

nicola: What is a MTCT?
Ivelina: MTCT is a Multi-table collapsible tournament
Ivelina: they're the most popular tournaments in the world
Ivelina: Multi-table collapsible tournaments can accept more than 10 players and split them up over multiple tables
Ivelina: These tournaments start at a specific time and date. Players are seated randomly by the software. The blinds increase incrementally as the tournament progresses.
nicola: that may be, but I have played poker for years on many platforms, I have googled and asked on a few big poker forums and no-one heard of em before Tongue
Ivelina: As players are eliminated, tables are ‘broken’, i.e. the players are automatically re-assigned to keep tables full or even with one another. Eventually, the last few surviving players with chips are assigned to the final table, where the eventual winner is the one who wins all the chips from his/her opponents.
nicola: are they just a MTT ?
Ivelina: sort of those, yes
Ivelina: but the idea is that the tables collapse until one is left
nicola: yeah, that's a MTT Tongue
Ivelina: so the more players are eliminated, you finally get down to the last ones sitting on one table Smile
nicola: seems partypoker just renamed them for some reason
nicola: ok ty for your help Smile
Ivelina: most welcome Nicola Smile

WOW.

That is one hell of a conversation . We're you pulling your hair out by the end of it? I saw the mission and considered it was simply a typo, but it seems that PartyPoker have reinvented the MTT. And called it an MTCT!

(Isn't that how all games work?)

Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

I checked their website any can't find any mention of MTCT, all i could find is MTT, so it must be a new name that they just started, and havn't put it on their website yet. Worship

------------
but i did find it on the internet.

Collapsible Tournaments

Collapsible tournaments are tournaments with more than 10 players and multiple tables running concurrently. As players are eliminated, tables merge. This continues to happen until only 1 table remains, and ultimately finishes when 1 player holds all of the chips.

Each player begins the tournament with the exact same amount of chips. There are both Limit and No Limit Hold’em collapsible tournaments. When one player has all of the chips the prizes are awarded according to the prize payout for that particular tournament.
Rules
Any player is eligible to enter into a collapsible tournament, providing they are able to pay the buy-in.

All collapsible tournaments are played until 1 player has all of the chips.

The blinds are determined by the button and the first to act pre flop.

Soft playing is not permitted. Each player should play with the same intensity against all other players.

There will be 5 minute breaks every hour, all Poker tournaments continue until one player holds all the chips.

When a player loses all their chips they are declared out of the tournament and finish in the order they were eliminated. Example: In a 210 player tournament if you are the third player eliminated, you are declared as finishing in 208th place.

If more than one player is eliminated in the same hand, the player with the most chips before the hand started finishes higher. In the case where both players also have the same amount of chips before the hand, both players will tie for the position. If there is a tie between two or more players, the prizes they qualify for are split evenly between all tied players. For example, if two players tie for 2nd place, each player receives 50% of the second place prize and 50% of the third place prize.

ThePanClub.com will not assist in any deals among players during or after poker tournaments. Poker tournaments continue until there is one declared winner and the payoffs will be exactly according to the prize pay out structure.

All players will play with all their chips until either they lose all their chips or win the tournament.

During play in any of the poker tournaments, if a player loses their connection and does not re-connect or does not act, their hands are automatically folded and their blinds are posted automatically when it is their turn until they return. Eventually the player is "blinded out" if they do not re-connect back to the poker tournaments table.

Players must understand and accept the risk of internet disconnections, as they can and do occur. If a player is not connected before a hand starts, they will be dealt cards and then folded automatically. If they are required to post a blind and are not connected, their blind is posted automatically and their hand folded. Again, this continues until the player is fully connected and back in the poker tournaments or until the player is out of the tournament.

In the rare and unlikely event of a server problem, all poker tournaments in play during the problem are deemed as cancelled. Once the server re-starts, we will refund the full Buy-In and entry fee of each poker player that was still in the tournaments at the time. In addition, each of these players will share in the prize pool accumulated from the players that were already eliminated from the poker tournaments. This payout is based on the player's proportion of chips compared to all other remaining players. This resolution treats all players fairly. If a player was eliminated from any of the poker tournaments before the server problem, they are considered "out of the tournament" and do not receive an entry fee refund or any portion of the prize pool.
