Play continues until each player loses all of their chips. As each player is eliminated they are removed from the tournament and play continues among the remaining players. Play continues until there is only one player remaining who controls all the chips. This winner (and in certain cases second, third and even fourth place) are awarded entry into the next round or are awarded treasure. The winner(s) can then buy into the next round, and continue their way towards overall victory.
