Q. I registered early but was eliminated and want to re-enter. Will I still be protected?

A. Once an early-bird, always an early-bird. You will retain Bubble Protection, regardless of re-entry.

Q. Does my method of registration affect Bubble Protection?

A. Nope, you are always protected regardless of what you use to register (cash, T$, tickets), as long as you are an early-bird.

Q. Do backers share Bubble Protection?

A. Nope, staking does not apply to Bubble Protection, or vice versa.

Q. Is Bubble Protection available for satellites?

A. Bubble Protection will not be available in satellite tournaments.

Q. I just bubbled out of a tournament. Where is my buy-in?

A. If you were an early-bird, it should’ve already been credited. (Bubble Protection rewards are credited as you are eliminated.)

Q. In what form is my buy-in refunded?

A. Bubble Protection will normally cover your buy-in in T$. Methods of compensation might differ based on certain tournaments.
