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

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

Does my method of registration affect Bubble Protection?

You will be protected if you use cash or T$ to register.

Do backers share Bubble Protection?

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

Is Bubble Protection available for satellites?

Bubble Protection will not be available in satellite tournaments.

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

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

In what form is my buy-in refunded?

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