I won 8,000 in chips in a tournament yesterday but they haven’t showed up in my bankroll - are these chips won not used for regular play? Thanks.
Players often confuse tourney chips with play chips. The tourney chips are only used for the purposes of the tournament, they don’t reflect how many chips you’ll actually receive in winnings. That is determined by the prize pool, which depends on the tournament, it could be simply made up of all the buy-ins pooled together minus the tournament fees. If you look on the pop-up lobby for the tournament you’ll see the prizes that were awarded.
